I do wish I could put photos up tonight but they just will not do the right thing for me so will have to try that part of this post a bit later.
It is so lovely to find a little treasure, to bring it home knowing it will just be so lovely there or even over there, well yesterday We visited our mother (Rob's mum) down in Frankston and a visit there is for me a time never to miss a little look at the second hand shop "savers" well I am never disappointed that is for sure.
Yesterday I brought home a beautiful Royal Albert trio (teacup, saucer and plate) and paid the sum of $7.00 for it. Also several pieces of embroidered linen to be popped on my eBay auctions and a couple pieces for......well she & they can remain a mystery for now :)
I also like to sell new bathes for bigger woman on eBay and I found a couple of almost new but very very nice bathes so they will go well I am sure.
Then there was the two vintage hats!!! OM GOSH!! I could not decide which one I wanted and when the girl at the check out said hats are half price today that settled it!! I will have both. lol lol lol (sure you will said hubby!!)
More yet I also love to sell dress or craft patterns they are beautiful and I got some very old ones yesterday along with some beehive topped knitting needles splendid!! I said they can come home too.
But...............the best thing of all was an adorable home made pillow that has been stitched in red work and then made up as part of a patchwork cushion. the pattern is a basket of flowers and I just love it. So it must have been left at the store no longer loved but just waiting there for me to come along and take it hope so that it could take pride of place on a garden seat when the sun shines and it is time to sit out under the pear tree and have a cup of tea and dream of days to come and those that have filled my life so far.
If I do not visit over the next couple of weeks please! PLEASE! understand......we are going to be grandparents again on the 23rd of Nov. our little grandbaby will be born right there on her daddies birthday and three days after mine :) so I am going to be looking after her big brother and sister for a few day until she and her mummy come home from the hospital.
Our daughter and Her beautiful children. Here she was matron of honour at her dear friends wedding just a few weeks go.
I will add some more lovely photos of "my finds" to this post the moment blogger lets me.
This is my Monday - How is yours???
