This morning, after all my munchkins had been deployed at their various places of mischief, I had two options - go home and tackle the mountainous pile of ironing awaiting me or go shopping.
We all know which I chose and here's what I found!
I am in love with woven baskets and trays at the moment (a post on that soon) and this one is really beautiful, such gorgeous workmanship, it's huge and cost only $2 in Salvos!!!
I mentioned before I have a lovely collection of cake plates and domes and was delighted to pick this one up today for $10. I already have two very similar footed cake plates, but one is little and one is medium, this one is BIG - now I have a set!
Another bowl - 50 cents. I should really do a post on my bowl collection but it would take me about a week to photograph them all!
This cute pair of salt and pepper pinch pots were $2.
Another basket, nowhere near as fab as the other one but handy for breadrolls and only 50 cents.
I fell in love with theses 2 original oil paintings the very second I saw them, they weren't priced so I brought them up to the shop counter and was given a price of $4 each! They definitely need TLC - a good clean and new framing (that horrible plastic framing is glued on, yuk) but I think they'll look fab when it's done and I love the little cyclists, it makes me think of my boys on a trip together :-)
I am amassing a worrying number of fishy dishes - I love this platter - $3.
This fantastic big fish platter is by a high end Australian brand called "Mud Australia", it costs $119 new in department stores and online retailers such as this, I got it in Vinnie's for $8!!!
Aaah, there's nothing like a good morning's shopping, I have a few minutes left to get that ironing done before school pickup, hmmm maybe it can wait until tomorrow...
