It’s all about green stuff…

…and spots and florals and a few other pretty colours this week.
Have I mentioned before that I like green? I love the little spotty Natio cosmetic case. That won’t be holding cosmetics ‘cos I don’t own any, let alone wear them. No it will be great for taking small sewing projects in the car or on the train.

And don’t you love the “packaging” of the cute green floral fabric? This op shop often “packages” their sheets and fabrics like this and they are always so cheap. It’s gotta be my favourite local oppy.

For more thrifting fun, head over to
Flea Market Finds.

I love green - those are great finds. The material to the right is just gorgeous. You'll have to keep us updated on what you end up doing with it.

obviously your eye goes straight to the green stuff! Nice collection - I love it when you find nice haberdashery in op-shops. Don't forget to tell the volunteers how much you like their packaging - nice that they make the rfort huh?

Yes polka dots are rather special arent they. I was so sad the mega Salvos store on Vineyard Rd was closed all Easter weekend, I stood peering into the window at the things which might have been :(

ooh, I did go to the Leisure Center Sat Market though, cute fabric covered hair clips for kids were there, but I didnt buy anything. I used to go to 'bootscooting' classes with mum. It bought back memories lol

Hoping you had a nice Easter:)

Great finds! Sounds like a fantastic oppy. My local only wraps a rubber band around the fabric. :)
