Journey as a "First time mum to be",
Lover of all craft.
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
Here is a very retro cushion that my mum made up for me! I did the funky 50's glasses in cross-stitch from a pattern on Etsy, I have my eye on a 50s red telephone cross-stitch next to go with an item I want to buy form an antique store it's a red dial telephone, I think I will get it next pay!
What a retro cushion.............
Next this $2 dress took my fancy, brand new looks as though it has never been worn!!
I fell in love with the little heart buttons, it reminds me of Alannah Hill.........
Look at this Retro lampshade for free, YES FREE, the lady at the op shop gave it to me!!
Yes it sits on that new dresser it really suits the retro theme...........
This little Owl was another oppie find and the lady said if she had seen it he wouldn't have still been sitting there! she said how do I find all these goodies as she worked there and hadn't seen any of them! I suppose some of us have the op shop knack!! I am going to use him as a hair straightener stand as you know how hot hair straighteners can get!
While blogging I have a little tea out of my bessemer cup (yes another oppie find!) I have a feeling my Aunty chris who will see this blog will also love this cup, she has a beautiful retro picnic set and is always on the lookout for bessemer goodies too! Aunty chris I have seen some pretty little bessemer saucers if you are interested?? just let me know and I can get them for your picnic set, they are pretty little flower ones and there is heaps of them there.
I fell in love with this little beauty, she is a "royal Grafton, bone china made in England"
Inside sits my Grandmas Locket that she left to my mum, it's the most prettiest locket ever.
And lastly I shall go and read my Country Style Magazines for some more inspiration and perhaps even some more op shopping in this lovely weather.
Till next post happy Op shopping and crafting girls xxxxx
