Take the Long Way Home

One final thrifty post for 2012. 
Can you believe I was worried I would run out of things to blog about at the beginning of the year??!!

The other day I came away empty handed from my op shop run. Which is okay really. It's proof that I don't have to buy something EVERY time I go thrifting. But I took a different road home, & saw a SALE sign out the front of a house & lots of stuff across the lawn. An older couple were downsizing, & they let me have a wee rummage through their things.

A gaggle of geese measuring spoons $1

Geese measuring cups for the steep price of 20cents!

Now the top of my microwave has it's own thing happening
As does every spare nook in my house!

Blue anodised milk jug

Cream beaded bag

A shadow box with glass doors

Now containing some smalls with spaces yet to fill

Beautiful blue Belgian made glass jars
$1 each

Old Nestle tin with a Parisian theme

 We're off for dinner at my bestie Miss J's place but it will be a pretty laid back evening, & who knows if we'll bother staying up till midnight. Sending my love & best wishes for a Happy New Year wherever you are!
