I was pretty darn stoked with my finds at the Op Shops this week! Obviously someone had cleaned out their granny's old haberdashery stash and I scored!
There were a few bags of buttons. As soon as I picked up the first one and felt how heavy it was I was pretty excited. Lots of gorgeous vintage buttons! Glass, leather, wood and plastic. All these buttons for $10.
Tassy and I have been having fun putting button families together.
There was a bag with oodles of British Snaps. Cute packaging hey.
I love this funky 70s sheet, which has a gorgeous border, and I was excited to find a bag of granny squares. LOVE!
And lots of books to add to my enormous pile waiting to be read.
Russian-English Dictionary - for its pages for scrapbooking etc. But I don't know if I'll be able to bring myself to rip it up.
Tangled up in You by Rachel Gibson - cos it had a nice cover :)
Insomnia by Stephen King - cos Kim's mum Peggy recommended it in the latest issue of Etzetera magazine (out now and it's fantastic!) and when I was a teen I read HEAPS of SK books, but not this one.
Rhubarb by Craig Silvey - cos I loved his other book Jasper Jones. I was so excited to find this one!
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden - cos I thought it would be an interesting read (I saw the movie a few years ago).
Russian Fairy Tales - cos I'm curious. Aren't you?
This Present Darkness by Frank E Peretti - cos I read it when I was a teen (in my SK phase - it's a similar style but it's a Christian novel). I don't know if I still have it somewhere but at only $1 it was a no brainer.
And this is a little coincidental... I googled British Snaps cos I'd never heard of them before, and found this blog post by someone who'd bought a bag of them at an op shop, along with vintage buttons, sheets and granny squares. Bizarro!
