a girl can never have too many pretty tablecloths


or pretty plates or kitschy little koalas .

Very happy with my latest Vinnies scores .

I love old china too! I wonder what the plate with all the holes was used for?

The little Koala on gum leaf is adorable.

at least it would be a 'positive' addiction!

I love it - I really like the old cress dish (with the holes), I think they would be great to collect.

Linda Lilly Cottage said...

Hi Clare, Can op shopping become addictive? When I get a great score like you did, I go and stand on the top of our roof and crow like mad!!!! No....er..um...no op shopping....not addictive!! lol. Love your treasures. Kind regards, Anita.

CurlyPops said...

Oh so true! You scored so well today - I found hardly anything on my little oppy jaunt!

Tania said...

Apparently the first step is to RECOGNISE the addiction...

Chris Fenwick said...

I am an avid opp shopper from way back Clare, my belief is just give in to it and opp till ya drop !!
Have fun,
Happy Australia Day oi oi oi

Shay said...

I have a plate that matches your strainer bowl Clare.

Yes- op shopping can become and addiction and no you can never have enough china or tablecloths !

Serenata said...

Definitely not and yes it is!

Maria said...

Our Op Shop is not as good as yours. What great goodies you scored Clare. Just love the wee Koala.

You go girl and enjoy your op shopping.

Lola Nova said...

Yes, absolutely it can become an addiction, and I agree...a girl can never have too many!

Quiltin' Sandy said...

Love the cute Koala, Clare. :)
I have one of the strainer plates, and the one to sit underneath, they belonged to my DGM. Lady at antique shop said they were for strawberries, but DM told me it was for lettuce leaves????

Sweet Cinnamon Stitches said...

LOL...I think in the craft world it's a necessity as you never know what treasure of the past you might find. Your purchases are beautiful!!
Keep up the good work :-)
Cheers...Jane.

Sandy at Cookies and Cream Craft said...

What wonderful finds, Clare...you lucky sod, you! I love op shopping. One of my email adderesses is: opshopnut. Addictive?.....Naw!

Robyn said...

Hmm, I'll be down your way in a couple of months. We might have to go op-shopping together to feed our addiction. Hope there's nice buttons at your op-shop!

Allie said...

My family would say yes you can have too many tablecloths, lol - but what can you do when you find them at such a good price when thrifting! SOMEONE has to rescue them! I adore your little koala!

Rach said...

Christy said...

Liz said...

From one addict to another--enjoy, and keep looking.
