There's Always Time For Thrifting





Even though the house was a mess, even though I was still to do a little baking, even though I still had a tiger tail to stitch, I still had to go and do a quick spot of thrifting. Duty calls!
Duty calls and booty spoils!

There was a lot of elbows in my way this weekend when searching through the goodies. People -there's plenty to go 'round. Did you leave your manners at home??

Beautiful old crockery. Check.
A matching tiny teacup and saucer with beautiful crazing. Check.
Beautiful hand covered coathangers. Check.
A knitting thingie where all my knitting as gone to...die. Check.
Some small sewing baskets. Check.
Some other old stuff. Check.
Change from a 20 dollar note. Check.
And then home in time to get it started. A party awaited.
