Flea Market Floral

Yay! the country oppies have delivered again, we were in Wagga over the holidays and every oppy seemed to have an abundance of floral that is not turning up in the city stores and of course at a fraction of the price.

Some fab boys sheets too, the green bamboo is my favourite. I think I have enough for a boys quilt now.

I love this single bed teal rose comforter, I paid only $3 for it, soaked it for two days and it came up a treat, so soft and snug.

Guess who's nabbed it for the lounge?

Some pretty plates for my wall. Love the grey and yellow floral.

Some Pyrex for the collection. I'm leaving a lot of Pyrex on the shelf these days, only buying the bits I really like or have use for.

And I really need to get my sewing mojo back, look at all of these patterns in Rosa's size.

It's been a while since I've linked up with Sophie, go take a peek.

The Boys Den

Apart from my new kitchen the boys room is my favourite room in the house. I don't know why....

Maybe it's the funky new lego storage sourced by my lovely friend Vic. You are too kind!

Or the $10 Vinnies desk (which I have seen in a sydney auction house for $320....ouch!). 

The colourful array of favourite books seem to match their hand made quilts perfectly. 

The bubble gum machine came from the husbands previous life and is filled with marbles that were gifted to the boys. 

Let's not forget the bed, one of my biggest furniture splurges to date, I still can't believe I managed to convince the husband that quality really does outweigh the expensive price tag. 

The addition of a fabulous new light fitting is all it needs and we are done.............for now anyway. 

What's your favourite room in the house?

Transformed - Flea Market Finds

Hey look! I'm back. Goodness knows what happened to me over the last 4 weeks, it seems I went to sleep In February and woke up in April. Didn't even do or achieve anything really exciting, nor did I go away, just a small case of bloggers block I guess.

I can't think of a better night to start back, It's a brand new month and it's Sunday so you know what that means!  joining in with Sophie at Her Library Adventures.

Remember this? my little wooden drinks trolly transformed to a rather bright shade of green.  It wasn't love at first sight but it's certainly growing on me.


And my lovely wooden lamp base finally met it's perfect match, I can say I love the grey and white chevron print.

Now time for me to pour myself a cuppa and catch up on some of your blogs, hope you have had a fabulous week end. We have!
