I have been 'told' by hubbie that Google Chrome will be my saviour, replacing Firefox for all my internet needs, but I don't know - little things are starting to annoy me - like when I upload pictures into blogger, I can't cut and paste them! ARRRgg! So, a little out of order (I wanted my Swap pressies first in the post, as they should be, but you guys get this instead....)
More pre-loved furniture (well, thrown out - we don't want you - you suck kind of furniture) - Hard rubbish collection treasure hunting score - needs a bit of TLC (don't we all!) Very cheaply put together, but a lick of paint will do it some good!
My DQS4 arrived!! Very cheery and fun little quilt made by Artsy Momma - Thanks Stefanie!! She mentioned that life is a bit hard at the moment, so to whip out a doll quilt for someone over the other side of the world would have been an effort - It would easy to ignore such little things as swaps with people you are never going to meet or even have to speak to, so I appreciate your commitment and thought!
Great mags and fabric too! I had never read American Quilting and Patchwork before - I have heard many Americans love our Aussie mags, but I really enjoyed this one! Not too many ads, interesting designs and interviews, simple speak - I like! The Adorn mag was great too.
The 'sickness' thing is getting bad...........
IT IS I tell you - the malady of OOS (Obsessive Op-Shopping) - I felt the need yesterday, despite numerous other jobs I had to do in my precious 3 and a bit hours between school start time and work. I hadn't been to Animal Liberation Op-shop (1
So, where to get my next 'hit' - RSPCA op-shops (yes TWO next to each other) in Burwood East (in the funny little quadrangle of shops opposite the RSPCA) Drive like a mad woman, because time is running out - I'm only giving myself 45 mins - Guess What? Everything Half Price!!! OMG - an op-shop at even less than ridiculous prices - it could not be true!
let me show you what I got..........
Some deliciousness for Vintage Sheet Swap
Couldn't resist this really interesting vase - in fabulous condition - does anyone know the label?
(the background is another sheet which is my favourite Spring tablecloth at the moment)
This Was my handbag for many a year (another op-shop score), but it is time for retirement - (my own take on handbag accroutements)
This is the new sportier model: more of a sling-over your shoulder, swan down the street, feeling fine kind of gal:
Great books for kiddleys over next school hols:
Mmmmmmmmmm - ice-cream - say no more:
How much you ask?.....All that... yes ALL THAT (plus a quilting hoop!!!) for 20 bucks!! that included a donation!!
The lady behind the counter was soooo lovely - what a joy to meet people who enjoy serving others - perhaps other (not so joyful) op-shop ladies could take note and smile once in a while?
