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...

    1. It was pretty funny! I obviously should never have given it away in the first place!

  2. LOL used to love going intonH&J Smiths when I lived in Queenstown...it was so out of sorts in comparison to the surrounding touristy shops in the arcade. Did you get a discount on the vase? :)

    1. I've been known to buy stuff back a week after I've given it away! Must stop that...
