Overdue opshop post ::

Its been months and months since I've done an op shop post!
So here are my best finds from the thrift stores over the last few months ::
This gorgeous little jug with watercolour flowers dripping down the sides.
(because I neeed another jug)!

A huge flower print. 
It originally had a gold frame, which has now been spray painted black!

I really really love this print.
It fits perfectly in our home. 
The lamp and bedside table were opped too.
The granny stripe rug, cushions and lampshade cover made by me!

This little shelf which I spray painted for above my cutting table.

And another - for the little ones room.

Some vintage neck ties. I love the textured ones the best.
Some places are charging up to $6 each for these.
I won't pay more than $2 though!

These Royal Staffordshire plates are actually teen tiny - oh so cute.

Blue Polish glassware. 
One large dish and six small bowls.

And the most recent finds :: 
this small dish at the front.
(the others are opped too)

And this 18 piece Staffordshire set :: cups, saucers and side plates.
Also the two Johnson Bros plates at the back.

These last two are actually from antiques shops, but still V good bargains.
This vintage clock didn't work and the brass edges were black!
The Mr put a whole new clock piece in and cleaned her up amazingly well!

This was my birthday pressie.
A vintage lamp whose hat sometimes gets knocked off!
(the tiered jewellery box was thrifted)  

So thats it.
Will probably be another couple of months before doing another opshop post.
All depends on the op shop Gods. Sometimes theres few and far between,
then you spot a bit of gold that makes up for it!xx

ps. There's a little Q & A over here with me!

beautiful beautiful finds there, I particularly love the little shelves. I wondered if you could help me with something..how do you get the icons at the bottom of your post "other things you may be interested in" ?

Ok, wow. Your round up of thrifted finds makes me want to go thrifting with you. I love the dishes and the cups. The blue polished glass bowls are AMAZING. The vintage neckties are so cool. You really found some fun things.

I agree with Amy, you have got some eye and some taste. I love the blue bowls too; and the flower print- there is something about the black background which turns it into a still life instead of granny chic.
mostly enamoured with your lampshade though :0)
So pleased you linked in Jennie x
