Thriftmas



Because there just isn't enough compulsory shopping at this time of the year, The Old Flame and I squeezed in a little op-shopping on the weekend.

We found heaps of wool, sewing notions and a toy loom (a bit expensive, but what the hell, it's Christmas), some shirts and these, my favourite things, which I even managed to photograph.



The white cane basket was full of knitting wool - most of it useable, the hand made little blue and white mouse in 3ply wool, the blue darning mushroom, and pink ballet flats with cute toe detail.

It all looks very Enid Blyton or Ballet Shoes (the book) What a great set of things you found. The little mouse is very cute!!!

I'm envious of the darning mushroom! I haven't seen one in a while. And I love the pink shoes.

I hope you (and your family) have a lovely, joy filled holiday!

Does this mean that you would actually have to darn now that you have the darning mushroom?

Wow! I caa never find anything remotely of interest to me at op shops! Jigsaws for WM? Yes. But yarn or knitting related items - no way!

Fantastic treasures you found there! I love the little mouse and the slippers :)

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

Oh what a wonderful find!

Love the pink shoes ... truly twelve dancing princess shoes.

The darning mushroom is a nifty find indeed, and the colour ... lucky girl.

Happy belated birthday for December too :)

ooh! I had shoes JUST like this, a few years ago!
I wore them until they were completely demolished, and it was very sad to let them go!
That mouse is adorable! =)
