Unironed Thrifty Finds

Early in the week I visited some of my favourite Opp Shops, one after the other. I got a little frenzied to be honest, so much good stuff, so well priced... kinda. Home found me laden with bags and dust coating my hands (when Oppies take eftpos I find it too hard to control myself). I found Vintage sheets, table cloths, doilies, fabric and so on. I even grabbed some cossie material for my friend Nicole.



 Lets call my dining table vintage also, maybe it will make those dings chic?




Here it is, in all its unironed goodness. Are you seeing a cute quilt out of those strawberry doilies? maybe some pockets on a skirt for the lady baby? Head over here for more vintage lovin'. And see some other creative space here.

  8. I can so relate to getting a ‘little frenzied’. And also the ‘kinda’ - a whole lot of bargains can add up to a whole lot of money. I love those vintage blues.
