I have just got home from an amazingly relaxing holiday
touring around country Victoria.
You might know I could never go past a little scrounge in the
Op and second hand shops
Luckily my hubby likes them too.
These are some of our lucky finds
The pink transfer ware dinner plate above
matches the rest I have. I only need 3 more dinner plates and 4 cups to
complete the whole dinner set
The plate was $5,a bargain
This gorgeous Johnson Brothers English sandwich plate
to add to my blue and white collection
Isn't it so pretty and a lovely shape?
This little Maxwell Williams jug
matches the cups and saucers I have
It was only $1
I am not into this vintage Japanese look,but my dear daughter is
I paid $16 for one like this on Ebay last year,but this one was only $4
You can actually see through the china.
Kerry Lee will love it.
She displays them on her Antique Japanese dresser on top of a vintage Kimono sash
It does look beautiful in the right setting
Now I know not everyone is into second hand clothing
but who could resist a beautifully hand knitted Aran cardigan
It is pure wool and is in perfect condition. Half price at $2.50 :)
Just a good wash in wool wash and it will be like new
A lovely softest pink tea cloth 90x90cms only .50cents
When I got an electric mixer many years ago,I threw out my hand beater
I really miss it,but find they are overpriced in the shops for such a basic item
I was lucky enough to find this one for $2 :)
My very favourite place to visit in Maldon Victoria is a little
cottage where every room is crammed full of vintage linen and lace
Every thing from Christening gowns to nighties and quilts
It is Heavenly for someone like me.
I couldn't afford to buy much,but was in seventh Heaven just
looking and touching it all.
I did manage to purchase 5 mtrs of beautiful cotton lace
which I will use on the pillow cases I make.
Well that's the fix I so needed
A relaxing holiday and beautiful treasures to bring home.
I have just been washing and drying them, which gives me equally as much pleasure.
Until next time
