Op Shop Treasures

Its been pretty quiet this week at the op shops. In fact I spent less than $5! (Sean is happy!) But I did find a few little treasures.

This cute musical birdie for Maya’s room. I love the colour, I love the music and I love the fact that it plays for ages!

Another piece of clothing for Maya and some more fabric (background).
The jumper is acrylic but I love the pattern. Just need some cooler weather now! And I love the little orange flowers on the fabric.

And lastly I found this teeny tiny half finished patchwork. The sides of the hexagons are only about 1cm long! It comes complete with paper hexagon templates, tiny fabric scraps and hexagons already tacked and ready to sew together. It’s a lot of work for something so little, but I plan to finish it – it’s on the long list of projects to do. Maybe I’ll finish it 2020…

Head over Sophie’s for more treasures.

Great finds. The musical bird is too sweet. He reminds me of the little ceramic blue bird I found at the op shop this week.
Hope your Sunday is lovely. Melinda xo
