This Weeks Finds....

I have lots of goodies to show you this week! I even found a new op shop - oh dear....


 
 

 
I love this tapestry so much that I can't bear to use it on one of my cushions so I'm going to paint the frame and put it in my daughters room!
 



 
I feel OK about using these ones - however pretty they are...

 
Not sure why I bought this as I'll never get around to doing it. Actually, I already have a finished and framed one of this so why do I need another one?!

 
The colours in this piece of Viyella are gorgeous...
 



 
 


 
When I was growing up my Dad had one of these on the back of his and mums bedroom door - I couldn't resist it!
 
 
 
More nostalgia! My parents had this cutlery set as their "good" cutlery. I'm presuming they got it for a wedding present. The backstamp is Rostfritt Stal.

When searching through a jar of buttons I found this name tag. You have to pity the poor girl!
 
Linked up with Apron Thrift Girl for thrifty finds.

  1. Great stuff! I really do like that parakeet picture. The tie rack is very cool. And that unfinished tapestry is really neat. Even undone it's cute!

    1. That name's just cruel! I've thought of some good nicknames for her...not sure I should share.

  3. I'm a sucker for needlework too. Finished needlework that is! By the way, "rostfritt stal" means stainless steel. I'm guessing it's Swedish.
