Shopping 'til I'm dropping

Well, not quite, but there are a lot of people out there who ARE! I can't be bothered battling with crowds and snappy, grabbing shoppers.

Instead, just before Christmas, I made a quick visit to an op-shop not far from me that I heard about here

...and these are a few of the things I picked up. Two tablecloths, one pure linen the other embroidered. A couple of napkins/hand towels and six gorgeous damask napkins in pure white.

They need an iron because I used them on Christmas Day. But when I first picked them up they looked like they'd never been used.

This is the linen table cloth. It's covering an old cupboard on the back deck that we used as a bar on Christmas Day.

I also found an old Simplicity pattern for a t-shirt that I'm going to make into a dress and a pair of jeans. I think I came out having spent $24. Not a bad little shopping excursion if you ask me.


  1. Love your embroidered tablecloth find - lovely! I have avoided the shops for now too...


I love to hear your thoughts.
