at the op shop...



like laura, i was back at the op shops the day after i arrived home from nepal. i don't even think i had done a load of washing before i headed off to see what treasures were awaiting me! i clearly have my priorities right :)

here are a few of the goodies i have picked up in the week since i have been back...
*the loveliest typewriter that still works... eek! i have been looking for a vintage typewriter throughout the 10 or so years i have been thrifting and have never seemed to have any luck so you can imagine my delight when i stumbled across this one for only $8!
*a few vintage sheets for quilting, crafting and swapping!
*lovely woolen blankets!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post... more Nepal photos to come but I will stagger them with regular posting so you don't get too overwhelmed!

Have a GREAT day!

  4. Haven't popped in for a while and seen that you've been to Nepal. I was there 10 years ago while on a world trip and Nepal was one of my fave spots. I keep dreaming that I'll go back there when the kids are older.

    Glad to see you got your priorities right, it was karma with the typewriter. Well done.
