Op Shop Finds

Here's a few op shop finds from the last few weeks!
The little swan for holding paint brushes and pens
and a lidded ceramic pot for vintage jewellery.
Both sitting on the top shelf of the sewing table.

And some doilies that might end up in something for this exhibition.

On monday I went opping with the lovely Leonie and Selina - so exciting!
And spotted this set of Wedgwood Royal Tuscan fine bone china through the window.
As well as the colours, I love the style of the bowls - shallow and wide.
The girls are loving drinking out of the cups - trying to put their pinky fingers out!

Also some embroidered pillowcases, old neckties, a sheet and tablecloth.

10 metres of calico fabric.
And some cool records - including "I Love Paris" 
(hmmm I know someone who loves Paris!)

While we were op shopping we came across two dressers almost identical to this one.
Both were well out of my price range. But thats okay,
 because we found this one last weekend on ebay!
It was in a right state, and needed an amazing amount of cleaning.
I didn't think we'd be able to save the handles, but the Mr scraped them and got 
them looking almost new. And the price for this lovely? ... $15.50!
Sooooo thrilled with it!
 (i'll have to stop buying dressers now, running out of places to put them!)x
