Booktown + Giveaway

We went to Booktown at Clunes on Sunday and I'm finally posting my finds!


I bought some books for my nephews.....the first one is an Australian History book.
Kids don't seem to be learning much about our history at school these days.


A kids bible (for Catholic school homework)


....and a book about insects!


These ones are for me.....a cool 1970's Golden Hands book


and an old Mc'Calls sewing book.


I found this dolls pram at the Clunes Op Shop. It was $10, but I only had $8.70 cash left so I asked nicely if I could have it and the lady said Yes!


...And now for the giveaway!
I found this Australian Womens Weekly knitting book from 1951.
I can't knit, but I thought that someone out there in blogland would love it so I bought it anyway.....

It has lots of lovely knitting patterns.....





.....and lots of cool 1950's ads.....


If you would like to be in the draw, leave me a comment by next Tuesday 5.00PM Melbourne time!

Yes please. Count me in. I love knitting, and books, and old patterns.

I was going to go to Booktown too but the lurgy kept me at home. It's probably a good thing - we might have met for the first time as we fought over the vintage craft books!!!

There's an op shop in Clunes?! I can't believe I visited for Booktown but missed out on the op shop... the pram is a beautiful find.

What a terrific find - I have a thing for vintage patterns. You have certainly had a good week this week with all of your deliveries!!

These are good findings. I would love to be considered for the give away. I just start knitting and I love the 50s fashion.

Oooh I'm in on the giveaway too! Don't think I'll be lucky enough to win again after my last Curlypops treat though :)
