Attention Ornament Swappers and a few op shop scores!



Hello Ornament Swappers ! If you have signed up for the Christmas Ornament Swap and haven't heard from Robyn or I please let us know as we really don't want anyone missing out on the fun .Can you believe I need to make 17 of these stockings for family members . I'm going to fill them with lollies , hope they like them .

I did really well at the local Vinnies yesterday and picked these up . The fabric is a tablecloth because I really need another beautiful tablecloth , ha ! I can't help myself , I see them and find them too hard to resist . I do use them though ... sometimes .
I'm also still working on my hanging basket Christmas decoration and I hope to have a giveaway soon to celebrate my new pattern release , I'm thrilled with my new design and I think you will love it too ! Best be off then if I want to get anything done .

I just love the pom poms on the stocking - I'm sure the family will love them (especially the lolly part).

I have a weakness for vintage items as well - although I actively avoid looking. Not much good stuff in my area though - mostly clothing as that seems to be the real need... the good stuff seems to be in the second-hand shops - lots of those around but definitely pricey! Love the chicken dish... very nostalgic.

That chicken dish is very cute! I love a good op-shop find.

Great finds, I should really scour op shops more!

Cute stockings - good luck in getting them all done and filled! Love the pretty table cloth.

I wish I could just whip up a stocking or 12!!!
The dish with hen is gorgeous!

Yes I know the feeling regarding the tablecloths....like I need more too, but I can't resist them either.

Hi Clare,
Ah, good idea for those unused pot plant holders.
Great finds at the op shop. How come I never find such great items?
Hugs,
Anna

OH I had a doll like that one, I loved her lots but time and my brother was the end of her. Good fines and enjoy the swap.

Well spotted! I seem to be getting a bit of a collection of old tablecloths as well, and I too use them....sometimes. Love the chicken. Do Cupie Dolls ever have clothes on? My two are "au natural" as well.

Anita said...

Aw aw Clare I love all those things in the photo, dolly, chookie, cloth and especially the tray. I wouldn't be giving any of those treasures away, they are yummo. Great find for you. Kind regards, Anita

I adore the pom pom trim on the stocking. DIVINE.
Though I have to say That I am head over heals for that Yellow hen dish. It makes my heart skip beats!!!!! My op shops have been really mean to me lately. nothing good

my ops shop visits are never much good... ineed to find some that no one else knows about, or one in an area with an older population;)

Well done at the op shop.. you were very lucky. I still love cupie dolls and the chicken dish is just too cool. The stockings are lovely too, although making 17 is a challenge!! Good luck xx

My fave op shop closed down...................So sad. I loved getting in and rummaging through everything. I look at an item and wonder what story it could tell if it could speak.
