My Last $12....

I ventured into my local salvos with $12 in my wallet. My last few visits have been really disappointing but today the thrifting Gods were smiling.... For $12 I got.....

A retro looking bedside table that I plan to strip back and put into the girls room

and some gorgeous red and white linen that will turn into some nappy covers for all the little boys that have been born in the last two weeks

What bargains have you found at the Op Shop lately?

I Fear....

Cushions Covers and Zippers......but I conquered my fear of cushion covers the weekend with this sweet little cover that we whipped up for our special friend Mia. It was so easy and I have lots of plans for updating my lounge with some throw cushions. I used this tut and a free print from the Otto website for the Babushka Doll. She is not perfect but made with lots of love...and I ran out of time to embroider her face, which is probably a good thing knowing how ordinary my hand sewing abilities are.

Vroom Vroom Set

A tiny bit of crafting has been happening in this house. We have just finished school holidays and coupled with a 2 year old that has forgotten how to sleep..there has been no time or energy for much! I have a few things cut out and ready to sew..I am just waiting for the sewing bug to return. I have been buying some fabric online from the US..while our dollar is lovely and strong..its becoming quiet an addiction!

I did manage to finish this little set for my parents to give to my girlfriend that had this little boy back in June. A basic pair of wide legged pants and a little Osh Kosh top picked up for a bargain price..pressies don't get much. better

And in other exciting news....I won this giveaway over at Amanda's blog. I bought the other two prints to go with the series as we are decorating the little man's room in a transport theme. Oh my they are so lovely. My photos don't do them any justice. Thanks Amanda I am thrilled to to find some white frames and we can hang them on the wall

I am planning to share the giveaway love very soon...with something special!
