This Weeks Finds....


I missed last week due to laziness and poor light! It rained so much last weekend that the light was crap and I couldn't get any photos done.

The funniest thing I found this week was a pot I made at art school 24 years ago!!


 
I think I gave it to another op shop about 15 or more years ago. My daughter thinks it's great so I'll make some colourfull pompoms on sticks to match and she can have it in her room.
 

 
Love this Figgio Norway jug!

 
 

 
 

 
Oops! I didn't realize how crap this photo was until I uploaded it!

 
 


 
 
 

 
I love this early packaging from H & J Smith's
 


I really should start the project I've been saving these for!
 


 
 


 
I thought I could make another macrame hanger with this cord - I just need to roll it off and count the metres...

Religious Statue Collection...



When I started this blog one of the things I was going to blog about was my various collections. Then I moved house and a lot of them have stayed packed in boxes as my partner is not a fan of my collected goodies. How on earth did I end up with a wannabe minimalist!!!

Anyway, I was pleased when I saw Op Shop Mama doing a collection linky!

Here is my collection of vintage Catholic statues. There are a few more dotted around the house and of course there are also my religious pictures and crucifixes which I'll save for another time...


      
 
 
 
 
Pop over to Op Shop Mama for more great collections...
