op buys

Not much sewing has been happening around here of late. The school holidays have seen us have a trip to Wagga staying with mum, a visit to the Junee licorice factory, some park days, a very chilly 5.8 degree day followed by a few foggy slightly warmer days (only just!), some wonderful catch ups with friends, a tipsy night out, a couple of spewey nights (the boys not me!) and as I said ZERO sewing......nothing like a bit of op shopping to fill the void.

A vintage cross stitch doily.......ok a tiny bit of sewing was done here. Don't mind the milo spill on the top.

This super cute vintage fabric/doona cover. I'm pretty sure the fabric is old just by looking at the print. It has been sewn into a doona cover using the longest metal zip along the side seam.

And this large wooden toy for Rosa to put her favourite mini Strawberry Shortcake doll in.

Lets just say Rosa scooped this time around!

PS: I could show you what the boys have scored in the past few weeks but action figures, batman costumes and gumboots and really not that cute!


  1. Man .... you are the OP SHOP QUEEN - I just love the little retro caravan!

  2. Wow - you did well!
    I can't believe you found that Le Toy Van car/carvan set at an op shop.
    I love the duvet cover too.

  3. Wow, some great finds there Karlyn! We have had a slow sewing time over here too. Might have to take a leaf out of your book and shop!

  4. awww that little pink toy car reminds me of my nieces.

  5. That car and caravan is ADORABLE!!! Lucky Rosa :-)
