op shop treasures

hello, such a beautiful day, after a big frost this morning, the day has been glorious. a little walk to town and a play on the swing and slide for lulu and some scooter(ing?) for the boys, we had a lovely lunch on our deck, i polyurithaned our newly acquired dining table, some rugby playing for the boys and their father in our backyard with a keen spectator in lulu. just wonderful. plus this week i was able to go opshopping a couple of times, serious opshopping in terms of the shops visited but i was careful not to spend too much (i'm still saving for my camera and for our trip to france in 3 weeks). here are the few things i bought, they will be linked to sophie's flea market finds (here), along with many others, check them out.

i'm very fond of this purse (i really like the clasp)


i am drawn to yellow glass glasses at the moment


this crochet blanket will have a new home in my car


i think yellow is my colour at the moment...


little plates, i love cute little plates


i definitely bought more things, but i can't remember what they are...oops!

see you next week!

  4. I too love the red purse - but I think the plates are super cute and as for the blanket - well, what perfect colours. I keep a couple of these in my car too - just perfect when it is really cold at my sons' soccer match!

  11. Gorgeous purse, that leather looks so smooth and tactile. I bet it's much better made than modern ones, too.
