Hello again

A very belated Happy New Year dear readers and a warm welcome to some new faces as well.

There's been lots going on here, I'll do a bit of a catch up post soon. In the mean time here are a few of my most recent flea market / op shop finds. Some thing lite and easy to get me in the blogging mood again.

More vintage sheets. You know a girl can never have too many of these, well that's what I tell myself anyway!

Two never been used vintage pillow cases and a baby wrap to make into not-paper towels

A plastic coated apron for soap making (love Snoopy), nut roll tin, woollen blanket to use for a quilt back, cute Holly Hobbie trinket box and a vintage toy pattern booklet.

Are you an op/thrift shop addict like myself, found any bargains lately?

Bye for now

Love your finds - especially the vintage sheets and pillow cases - so homey and cheery :) I am a very dedicated Goodwiller - I find fabulous, unique stuff all the time. It's addictive!

Snoopy and Holly Hobbie! Bliss.

I agree Jane, op shopping is a bit too addictive!

Bliss indeed Rose, two of my childhood favorites Peanuts and Holly Hobbie :)

Hi Kel, thanks for visiting. Yes I'll be sending in some of those sheets. Can't to think of a few things to make with all that vintage fabric.

Hey Lisa...good to see you back..I'm slowly making my way back too....
I love the vintage fabrics...your second photo; the purple fabrics...reminds me of a vintage single sheet I found in an op-shop..still in the original packaging too...The brand is 'Royal', and the price on it is $3.98....I just can't bring myself to open the packet to use the fabric.

Hi Narelle lovely to see you :)
I have a sheet in the same design except in a blue colour way. Fancy finding one still in the packet. I'd have a hard time cutting it up too.
