Thrifted out! Is it possible?

Last week Sophie (who has organised the sharing of our Flea Market Finds) complimented me when she called me an Op Shop Queen. I was duly honoured and I have done my best to live up to the lofty expectations one might have of an OSQ. I have certainly given the title a flogging this week!
It has been a big op-shop week. My daughters are  moving into their own little flat and were keen to thrift as much of the stuff they needed as possible. We have been in country oppies and their city counterparts and just about everything in between! I couldn't take piccies of everything, so I thought I would list some of them.
Here goes:
- a double bed ensemble
- 4 Actil sheets
- pyrex lasagne dish
- 2 cute chairs with rattan inserts
- flour sifter
- juicer
- cutlery
- 8 white Johnson Brothers plates with matching side plates
- 4 handpainted mugs
- 2 cow mugs (!)
- 2 baking trays
- muffin tray
 I have lost track of a few sundries ... We did fairly well I think!
My favourite find, and one I get to keep, had to be some lovely beads and buttons. Those I could take some photos of!
 
  
 
Lovely vintagy colours aren't they?
This post is my 100th and I had planned to have a givaway organised by way of a celebration. Sadly a week of hauling, thrifting, shifting, lugging and constructing ( God Bless Ikea!) has meant that I haven't quite got there! I plan to make something yummy using some elements from past Flea Market Finds posts. Sometime this week I will put the giveaway up so if you get a chance to drop in here you can join in!
