Flea Market Finds

Well it has simply been an absolute age since I have joined in with Sophie's meme. There hasn't been too much thrifting going on of late but this week, to celebrate the end of the Uni semester, I took myself off to some favourite haunts.


With the long Summer holidays in mind, I picked up a bunch of books - I love that people donate their books to charity so that we can share the love! I couldn't really go past the retro gorgeousness of the tea-pot - I love the exuberant colours. 

 That little spaceman is actually a fridge magnet bit I think he could become a brooch ...


This cute little critter is actually a vase - I love that this fawn is channeling its inner Miranda Carmen and chomping on some cherries.


Just look at that face - who could resist!


These dear wee beasties were especially lovely to find as I had, as recently as Friday, been chastised by The Denouncer for even contemplating the purchase of new woodland critters in Bauhaus. Mwahahah ... - not one but two sweet woodland critters unearthed in the oppie!


Clearly this fawn is delighted to have found a home in my studio - that face is a veritable study in delight!




Finally this very smug looking cat was rescued from the dusty thrift store shelves. I liberated it because it is an old Avon bottle and because best of all - its head comes off!


Ha ha ha - not so smug now Kitty! All in all a really fun fossick. I hope you have all had a lovely rummage in the op shops this week and found things that make your heart sing.

One step closer..... Technically it's three steps closer-but The Denouncer is feeling generous so who's counting! Crikey! People buy them on ebay?

yeah, take THAT, Kitty!!

Avon is so collectable.

I was in Adealide recently and did a huge thrash of all those great old and truye oppys.

Came away with a wind up musical Virgin Mary that may also glow in the dark. Who wouldnt be pleased with that?
