Frilly


I was driving around running errands earlier this week when I spotted a sign for a new Op Shop.

Now that's the sort of sign that I can't resist, so I immediately added it to the days itinerary!

When I walked inside, it all seemed familiar..... and suddenly made sense. One of the local churches is undergoing a renovation and so they've moved their Op Shop onto the grounds of a different local church so that they can keep trading.

Even though I hadn't visited that oppy since late last year, the lady behind the counter still remembered me from when I was madly buying all the random knitting needles for my Fringe Festival Exhibition last year.


I came home with two whole shopping bags full of goodies, but this was my favourite find of the day. I haven't actually tried it on yet, so fingers crossed that it actually fits!

Great find! I got some awesome stuff the other day, I must do a post on some of it. I'm a little under the weather after this week though, so perhaps after a rest up this weekend I'll feel better.
Hugs Cam!!!

I love that the dress is green. People are afraid to make cloths green. I think green is a pretty color.
