This Weeks Finds...

 
Ooops! I missed posting last week so I'm adding it to this one. There wasn't really much to show so I gave it a miss!
 
 
 
 
I think this must have been a mustard pot or someting like that? I'm going to make it into a pincushion...
 

 
 
 

 
 
 





 
I made another terrarium with this large glass bowl...
 

 
Vintage Agee jars. I'm hoping to make some crab apple jelly this weekend as my tree is dripping in fruit!

 
Velvet cushion cover...
 

 
I must say I'm NOT a cat lover! I blame the allergies...
 
 

 
This tapestry has been in one of the local op shops here for about a year now. It had $25 on it and no one bought it but They've been dropping the price and I finally got it for $4!

  1. I love the tapestries & the old jars, & that bangle is a beauty. I think the china house is a "salt house" without the roof lid. Xx

  2. That will make a neat pin cushion. I'm loving the bracelet and the fabric especially this week. Any plans in mind for the fabric?

    1. Hmm...No plans for the fabric as yet so it'll go in the stash until I think of something!

  3. That New Caledonian cushion cover definately beats out our NC souvenier: a really bizarre "glamour" calendar of the New Caledonian Womens Rugby Team. The little guy who sold it to my hubby (the easy mark)totally conned him...it was hilarious.

    1. Haha! That sounds hilarious. Reminds me of an old flatmates pig hunting/glamour girl calender - very strange!
