Well I may not have made it to as many op shops as I had originally intended, and I had severe luggage restrictions due to the obscene amount of guff that accompanies toddler travel I DID manage to snap up a haul that i'm pretty happy with... as you can see I went a little crazy on the ancient little golden books for Maxwell (well me). And you could probably say the same thing for the tapestries I collected, although I won't even pretend that they are for any other purpose than my studio wall collection.
Ok the blue boy does have rather a bung eye and the little leaf one is a little run of the mill but this last one (which I think is either Brittany Spears or Nikki from The Young and the Restless) was just so freaky I couldn't say know - I have handed over into Miss Pen Pen's capable care, I think it will make a nice centrepiece for one of her tapestry pouffes no?
I also snaffled up these three old craft tomes, because why wouldnt you want a mother and daughter crochet beach set.
and I even managed to fit in a twin set of vintage 60's english stoneware and yes you read right they were a ridiculous 25 cents a piece.
this top tin tray was also too good to say no too, and another 25 cent bargain
and I managed to find Ramona something rather special...(those of you who know the story of her name change on the way to hospital will appreciate this) although i'm sure the Truck Driving Historian will drive her crazy with guitar renditions day and night from here on in.
and finally, this little beauty...
all in all not a bad couple of days work!
