tuesday treasures

bird book for 10cents

I really try not to go op-shopping too much unless I need to go scouring for something in particular.
This week I needed more doileys for ladies wraps and a couple of blankets for some more eskimo jackets.
When I made the wrap dresses I sorted the doileys into summer weight ones and winter weight (thicker). Im fast running out of the fine summer ones and since we went away to the country to see our daughter and her hubby on the weekend I was close to some good local oppys.
I didnt find doileys or blankets but I did find these wonderful things.

So today im joining in with Tuesday Treasures over at The House on the Side of the Hill.

vintage sheets

and a fantastically huge case for the market.
Maybe I should keep it in the car for the next stash
of op-shopping goodies?

Thanks for hosting Melody!

Goodness. I try to go op shopping as often as possible. hehe. I remember those how and why books. We thought they were very special back in the days when material goods were not in such abundance. Cherrie

I love op shopping, one of my favourite past times. I have even managed to get my children to see the wonderfulness of it as well :-)

These are wonderful treasures you have acquired.

Have a wonderful week :-)

Wonderful finds - the vintage sheets are very pretty - I'm not sure what an op shop is as we don't have anything called that in the uk :0)

Op shopping is great fun. I remember those How and Why books from childhood.
Happy days.
