Friday, August 12

I've been busy having fun visiting some of our local op shops recently, some I've been to before and also a couple of new places.  At one of the new places the other day I spotted this mirror and just knew with a bit of paint it would be a great addition to the big girls room so today I went back to buy it, luckily it was still there.
And these lovely bits of fabric I picked up from my regular, go to op shop.  The brown fabric is an old curtain, the browns caught my eye and I thought it would be perfect for a bit of wall art for my craft room. Not sure what to do with the other fabrics yet, I really like the idea of a picnic rug using vintage fabrics. I'd also really like to find some of that bright vintage fabric I've seen in blog land but I haven't had any luck yet.

Have a wonderful weekend we're off to the Ekka.  Have you got any weekend plans?

  9. Love the mirror, can't wait to see what you do with it but it's quite gorgeous as is. Know what you mean about the bright vintage sheets- think I have found 2 or 3, they are rare as hen's teeth. melx

  11. That mirror is a great find! It will look lovely painted. Looks like you had fun at the Ekka, we're avoiding it this year but I still want to at least go for a drive one night to watch the fire works.
