Op Shop Finds (and a makeover)

I had a brilliant op shopping day with the lovely Selina this week.
We found a high street with quite a few charity shops and a few down the side streets too!
I stocked up on wool rugs, as I can never find them when I'm looking out for them.

A teatowel

Some old neck ties, vintage sheets, napkins and a set of trays I couldn't leave behind.

And we split some of this gorgeous Corningware.


I also found this lamp a few weeks ago.

After gazing at it on the side every night,
I finally decided to paint it for a slightly different look.

This is not an op shop find tho!
This is from the lovely Kirsty at Kootoyoo,
who won the Canon Island Photography competition.
By voting for her photographs, I won this Canon camera!
I'm over the moon (and so is Miss 10 who has taken over my old camera)
Thanks so much K!x

Excellent finds! You'll love your new camera. And those sheets are brilliant.

Would you believe I gave away a whole lot of those plates and tea cups about a year ago? I had no room!

Regrets ...

Oh, my. What amazing finds. I'm having some serious op-shop envy here. I adore those blankets and those vintage sheets and that corning ware would have been coming home with me too, had I found it. Cx
