Hello Junking Thrifting Friends near & far....!
I hope this post finds you well & not overly stressed by the 'silly season' in which we're currently immersed....!!
I'm afraid I've endured a little non-Christmas related stress of late....What with some none to pleasant issues at 'the pesky day job' combined with the discovery that Mr SVJ & I need to have our bathroom & spare bedroom (my office) gutted & redone....
Due to some serious water damage caused by the LAZY STOOPID builder who used a wooden hob instead of concrete or stone....
Needless to say when I woke this morning & remembered it was SATURDAY....There was ONLY one thing on my mind....My version of Retail Therapy....aka....THRIFTING....To soothe the agitation I've had bubbling away & free my mind of 'unpleasant' thoughts.... :o) !!
This purple top is just what I needed for the warmer months ahead....
Two 'new to me' Vintage Christmas ornaments....
I have a BIG thing for button top knitting needles....These two bring my tally to 26 x pairs....!
I never E-V-E-R find kids vintage hankies so I was THRILLED to come across EIGHT this morning....And a GORGEOUS Christmas one to boot WOOHOO....!
A pink ball of 100% 4ply wool....And as you can see I've already started crocheting a little flower garland.... :o) !!
And a bag of trim which I'll add to my stash to use on future projects....!
This haul set me back a tiny $14.00....Price of a mind freed from agitation & 'unpleasant' thoughts....Priceless....!!
....hahahahahaha....Now it's 7.15pm down here & I'm off to spray some air freshener in the hall to mask the damp smell & find myself a glass of wine so I can sit & relax & catch up with you all....!!
Cheers for now,
