AWESOME WEEKEND VINTAGE FINDS..VERY HAPPY!!








Hi ladies....
I have had a WONDERFUL weekend finding BITS & BOBS.
PLUS having BYRON home for 24 HOURS!!!!

Anyway...will keep it brief...whilst down "the street" on friday...I saw a cupboard just LEFT outside the back of shops..?? MMMM when going to my car after shopping at 2.30 pm..thought it was a beauty...

When hubby came home for us to go out to dinner at 6.30 pm..made him drive past..just to see if it was still sitting there unwanted...AND YES!! it WAS...

AND as hubby just happens to have the car to fit it into...YES!! so it is now mine to makeover!!

And yesterday ventured to one of my favourite FLEA/JUNK market HAUNTS & found LOTS of lovely goodies...from POODLE STUFF!! to soo much linen & lace..
vintage suitcases....plastic 50's dolls heads...dollies...gorgeous BARKCLOTH material...GREAT tin for $5.00!!..gorgeous ROSES TAPESTRY.....


PLUS lots of LOVELY VINTAGE SHABBY CHIC CARDS...I LOVE OLD CARDS..especially with roses etc on them...& FOUND one with the OLD 21st CARD still attached.. how gorgeous is this one???

I have just dyed LOTS of this gorgeous linen PINK...hanging on the line to dry...
SOO i have to say I have actually HAD a quite productive weekend...
as WELL as having eldest SON home for a little bit!!
sorry photos are OUT of sequence AGAIN...but I dare NOT try to change as I will probably LOSE them all!!

Gosh Andrea, you always seem to find such fantastic goodies on your outings. What a find is that cupboard! Good going for hubby to go back & pick it up for you.

I want to know what kind of person leaves a cupboard like that just lying around for anyone to come and take (lucky it was you!). How do you do your dyeing? I have never had much success with dyeing, just a big mess.
Have a great Christmas Andrea and will be back in touch in January.Thanks for supporting my blog with your friendly, witty comments!

Hi Andrea, what great finds! Nothing beats finding something on the side of the road though..lol! I really like old cards too and can't believe you found so many. Looks like you'll be busy making over that wardrobe, you'll have to show us the finished product... take care, Maryann

I can't go past the cute little dolls. But the pink hanging linen is coming a close second.
