Op Shop Hop and Babushka’s…

I had an absolutely fabulous day, made so much better by the wonderful girls I went with!!! I was up before the birds… had the calves feed… before my nieces were dropped off for the day… my sister was stuck for a babysitter so DD1 babysat the older two and I took Summer(2) with me… Summer was amazing all day, that girl knows how to shop!

I arrived at Claire’s to find she had bought us a big bucket each to put all our goodies in…I would never have thought of it myself…

Mine was this lovely blue one! Then we drove to Stratford to met with Michelle and the first Op Shop where I bought this cute little doll cradle($2.50)…

I plan to give it a quick sand and a white coat of paint… and make a mattress and a teeny tiny quilt to fit! Next stop was Inglewood which was a bit of a disappointment… none of us found any goodies there… so next stop was Waitara… where we found a real treasure trove of goodies at Corso… this is what came home with me…

These cute little forks($10)… there were three but one was missing the little blue flowers and it has now found a home in my garden along with an old spoon I found outside the other day! I also found this sweet little bowl($1 I think?)…

I have plans for this too which I will share a bit later on… By now we are feeling a mite peckish so we head to my Mummy’s for lunch… She had made a yummy pumpkin soup, followed by Chocolate Mousse for dessert… Thanks Mum it was delicious!!! Then while we let our tummies settle we had show and tell…

These gorgeous Babushkas were our last months challenge… mine are the three on the left made out of ‘Bliss’ fabrics and Claire’s are the 5 beauties in the middle and Michelle’s three cuties on the right…I love them all! Then Michelle surprised us with some gifts she bought us on her recent trip to Australia… A cute babushka notebook…
