If you are a regular reader of my blog you will know how much I love a good treasure hunt - Every week I go either to the market or to some local thrift shops for a good scrounge and to find some treasure to brighten up my country shabby home.
Last weekend at the markets a local flower seller brought along the biggest bunches of unopened lillies you have ever seen. They were $6 a bunch and as I love to have fresh flowers in my home I had to buy some. Look how beautiful they are now that they have begun to open.
Their depth of colour is amazing.
And the glorious scent in the house hits you as you enter the door. I really hope he is there again tomorrow.
Look what else I found last weekend? This is a huge painting and beautifully done. I shabbied up the frame just a little and now it hangs in our sitting room. A steal for $35 don't you agree?
Yesterday was my first day of leave for a week or so and after finishing the million errands I had to run I popped into my local thrift shop. Just when I had given up hope of finding anything this beauty winked at me. A queen size doonah and 1 pillow sham.
The quality and beauty of this set has to be seen to be believed. It is currently hanging on the line and will be pressed and on my bed just as soon as it is dry. How much you ask? What would have been at least a $150 set was just $5 - Amazing.......
And just as I was about to walk out the door I spotted this little sea urchin trinket box. It reminded me instantly of our trip to Bruny in November so I just had to have it. All of those white tin accessories and wicker baskets I showed you a week or so ago are for our bathroom makeover which we are madly saving for and this little beauty will fit in with the theme perfectly.
For 50c you can't blame me for not leavingit there.........
Work has begun on 2 new designs - One of which is a new BOM which will be ready towards the middle of he year. I have called it "It's The Little Things That Matter". I will show you progress shots as we go along....
I am off treasure hunting again tomorrow - Wish me luck.
And have a wonderful weekend.
