VINTAGE FINDS & OTHER GOODIES FROM A DIFFERENT SOURCE!??












Hi again ladies..

well after yesterdays cleaning spree I have been quite comfortable listing lots of goodies on ebay today....!!

I just love the vintage crochet granny blanket I found yesterday at an op shop and I have teamed it up with some red/green christmas decs..

Looking at listing my "GREEN" goodies...I dyed the tablecloth a lovely green and had the vintage napkins already..teamed up with a basket...??
BUT I LOVE the BIG tin shabby pink floral round PLATE/TRAY..what do you think about it??

I Love it as a display behind other pieces...?? or to use??

Guess where I bought it & purchase a LOT of my lovely bits & bobs from??

the LOCAL CHINESE/VIETNAMESE SHOP.....

these SHOPS are AN ENDLESS supply of YUMMY goodies..with a BIT of thinking OUTSIDE THE SQUARE!!! if you get my drift...
so if not thought about them...check them out!! food for thought.

xx andrea

Hi Andrea
Love the vintage crochet granny blanket, I remember making one of those when I was younger, does that make me a granny?
Love the way you're "dying" things

Yes Andrea, me too, awake at 3 in the morning - usually 3 oclock on the dot, takes hours to go back to sleep - I think it's another little bonus for our age group !!!!
