treasure.




you know that ever growing 'op shop to buy' list that is stored in your phone? the one that has your dream op shop finds? like a round beveled mirror, classroom blackboard, owl cookie jar and roll down maps. no? just me?

well - also on that list was a vintage boater and cookie jar. i should have also added awesome floral embroidered cardigan but i didn't know what i was missing out on until a few weekends ago! i found all three things within the space of 24 hours and needless to say, i was fairly chuffed with myself! now i just need to find that blackboard!

have you found any treasure lately?

p.s - blogger seems to be adding hyperlinks to some of my text and linking to some random 'win an iphone' rubbish. anyone know how to get rid of it?

  1. Well done Kel! Tick those items off. Yep totally know the list thing. Mine is a full set of vintage canisters in glorious pastel colours, pink pyrex, floral bread bin..... I could go on but that is the top of the list. melx

  4. Haha! So funny to come across your post this morning - I have just spent 10 mins revisiting my list as I'm heading down to Adelaide from Sydney, and well the op shops/vintage shops are AMAZING (i think Melbourne is the best, but more expensive)! My list is sort of much much much longer than your's hehe!

  5. Oh yes, I have a rather long list of treasures I hope to find thrifting...it doesn't help that I am continually adding to it either.
    The embroidery on that cardi is quite exquisite :)
