Op shop find

In Home Decor, Shopping on July 29, 2011 at 6:22 am

After a late lunch of fish and chips on Cronulla beach I only had ten minutes to have a quick look in St Vinnies. I almost didn’t bother going in because it is a tiny store and there were a lot of people blocking the aisles .
Luckily I did because I spotted an Indian pottery bowl with a lid for $1 ! The bottom of the bowl bears a mark ” Punjabi”, which doesn’t mean it is worth a lot but it is from India. It was fate that I found this in the push and shove of opshoppers because just minutes before I had picked up some shells off the beach to place in my blue Chinese sauce bowls and they look great next to my new find.
Love it when this happens !


Framed at Cronulla

We have been in our new house for a year now and I still am in the process of working out what pictures and photos to hang on the walls.

Today I went to Cronulla and found 8 brand new black 4×6 frames for $1 each!

Then at a gift shop called Beluga  Homewares I picked up 2 frames in a distressed limed wood for $15 each. I have been looking for something like this to frame some postcards from Spain for my bedroom. Yay!

Also I took a few minutes to sit in the sun at the beach before it was back to the laundry basket  🙂
