I may not get back here tomorrow so I want to start this post with a heartfelt THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to each & every one of you who have visited with me this past year....! I can't begin to tell you how much I've enjoyed your company....Reading your comments, visiting with you at your 'place' & meeting with some of you in person has been an amazingly UPLIFTING experience....To know that I'm part of a community of individuals spanning the globe who share my passion for Treasures from the past, understand my eccentricities & look forward to the next instalment is quite humbling....!!!!!
The end of the year always provides an opportunity to reflect on the year that has past & here at Casa SVJ, there has been a lot of reflecting....Mr SVJ & I have had many MANY discussions since we've been on annual leave re just what it is we are wanting to achieve in the coming year & some very IMPORTANT decisions have been made....Alas, as these plans need to be discussed with others I'm unable to let you in on them as yet....Suffice is to say, when the necessary parties have been advised, you guys will the FIRST TO KNOW.... :o) !!!
Needless to say....Most SIGNIFICANT decisions bring about change & while change IS a good thing, it can be overwhelming & give you heartburn....Today I had a LOT of heartburn & to distract myself....I went Thrifting....$65.00 later my heartburn had subsided & been replaced with a big fat GRIN....!
** sigh **
Two of my FAVE childhood books from TWO different Op-Shops....What Katy Did Next & Good Wives....
GORGEOUS sage green Pyrex bowl in PERFCT nic, YUMMY orangey Tupperware container....Not ONE but TWO swanky swigs....** Happy Dance ** & a trophy engraved 1933....I can't believe at 3pm in a Salvo store this was still sitting about....LUCKY me.... :o) !!
Some more of my FAVE button top knitting needles....
Two STUNNING Sanderson Linen curtains....The texture of this fabric is TO DIE FOR & the print....Well....It IS Sanderson....
I ADORE this towel....ABSOFREAKINLUTELY ADORE it....The pastel colours, the fact that it's from the 70's, PURE cotton & was MADE IN AUSTRALIA make this the PERFECT Thrifting find to me....YUP....ADORE it....!!
This throw is DELICIOUS....The colours are GORGEOUS & it feels DIVINELY snuggly....!
A HEAP of PURE wool to add to my stash 'cause you KNOW I've turned into a crocheting FOOL....!
And last but by no means least is this FAB handmade shirtdress & sage green wool coat....Oh how finding these two made my HEART SING....And for a TINY $11.00....Who was I to argue....Can't WAIT to wear them....!!
I can just see this dress with these boots & my new to me green coat....!!
Well....That's IT from me....I hope you enjoyed seeing my new Treasures....I look forward to sharing MANY MORE with you in the New Year....!!
If you're out & about over the long weekend PLEASE take care....!!
Warmest wishes for a HAPPY....HEALTHY....CREATIVE....FULFILLING....2011,
