MONDAY'S GORGEOUS VINTAGE FINDS!!~~


Well, i still cannot quite believe how Australia has gone from horrible droughts for the last several years....

To now kind of RAIN non stop...
(spare a thought for Queenslanders in their time of need right now with the horrible floods engulfing large parts of their state)...

I ventured down the "highway" today to one of my favourite haunts..

AND IT was just pouring down all the way..

I actually HATE driving too far any more, BUT in the rain...pouring down...I was in TOTAL CONCENTRATION mode as visibility was almost NON existant!!~~~

Anyway , I did arrive safe & sound and found some lovely vintage goodies...

From vintage tins featuring roses,kittens and a delightful minuette "ballet" couple...

A gorgeous shabby PINK 'STREVENS" french lady BIG print...

A delightful blue/white french chic crochet tablecloth...( which I have cut up into individual centres to sell on ebay)..

metres upon metres of delightful (on original cards...Spanish)...tassle edgings..
RICH PINK & GREEN....
(plus a wonderful big suitcase & another crochet cloth which i shall be dyeing)...

So it was worth driving in the RAIN...!!~~
I was very happy that the rain had stopped whilst driving the 60 kms back home!!

I hope WE ALL have good vintage finds this week~~~~~~~

Happy Vintage shopping...~~!@@

Hi Andrea, I love all your finds, especially the painting of the french lady. Yes, the weather is the same here too.. it has been raining for 4 days now. We seem to be having more rain than sunshine and soon summer will be over. I feel so sorry for the people hit in Qld with those horrendous floods! Will have to go do some treasure hunting soon too.. take care, Maryann
