oooo...look what i found!!

After spending yesterday morning in the recording session working on a special Christmas music project (stay tuned), I had intended to spend the arvo with the wonderful Taz proof reading our first ever issue of Hundreds and Thousands Mag. But, her little one got sick and so I suddenly had a free arvo. Hmmm...perfect opportunity for some op shopping! So, since I was in a  different part of Melbourne to where I usually live, breathe and op shop, I thought I better hit their shops, and hit them hard I did! I found lots of wonderful little treasures. Here are just a few....

I paid $3 for this beauty, a retro kids sewing machine, and it seems to work!! I'm totally in love.
brand new leopard print boots, pink floral tights and a new skirt for me!
some craft supplies...floral contact, a craft book, some crocheted lovelies and velvet ribbon
Oh! and already cut, ready to sew together bunting flags! lucky me, someone did the annoying part already!
sweet floral tea towels
 a nice big heavy orange frying pan (please excuse my dirty stove!)
and last but not least, some cute vintage bathers. I really should stop buying vintage bathers. It's hard to resist though, when they are so rare and then so damn cheap when I actually find them!!
Joining in again with the Op Shop Show Off.
I really do love op shopping!!
