It's still too damn hot.....

Ok, now that I've that off my chest.....I went a little bit of an op-shopping spree today and this is what I found.

A lovely crochet blankie for $2. I can't wait until I learn how to crochet at Brown Owls so I can try this out for myself.

Two vintage pyrex bowls in fabulous condition. They were a bit pricey at $6 and $7, but they will be perfect for making chocolate pudding for 2 when the weather cools down a bit.


A small bag of corduroy offcuts for $0.50, some pink cotton for $2 and a book with lots of templates etc for $2.

The bargains above were all from St Vinnies.


.....and this little trolley for $5.75 from the Salvos. I've never noticed before, but I read this weird fact on another blog (can't remember which one but it was probably I Op Therefore I am). For some strange reason, prices at the Salvos always end in 75 cents. This trolley didn't have a price so they had to make one up on the spot and it still ended in 75 cents......

They must have a nightmare when people pay cash and they have to keep giving out 20 cent and 5 cent pieces for change!



I stopped off at Spotlight on the way home (it is actually on the way, I didn't make a special trip, and I'm really really trying not to buy any more fabric) but I searched through the remnant bins and found these bits and pieces that might just come in handy.......(at least I didn't buy any more off the roll).

It's also hard rubbish collection in my area at the moment so I did stop the car yesterday and pick something up off the naturestrip. It would have ended up in landfill if I hadn't stopped. I'll post some photos tomorrow as I forgot to take some today.
