I love to op shop and recreate 28/04/2009

Filed under: material,wahm — Arms full of love @ 3:04 am

I went the op shop on Friday without the little ones and I was surprised that after living in this area for 2 years and visiting the op shope FREQUENTLY! I found a whole section I had never taken the time to look  at….I just always rush to the toys to keep the kiddies happy!

I got some beautiful things and was soooo wishing my op shopping loving  beautiful friend Elke was with me to share my joy….oh how I miss her!

I got these beautiful napkin holders (still in their original box and plastic!), img_5023

2 wooden trains, how I love wooden toys, so does Jarrahson!img_5025

I got some beautiful clothes, one off original things, for me, Zahara and even Daniel!

I also got a single sheet, we needed some more as we only have 1 and I just couldn’t leave the material there, it captured my attention. When I was putting the clothing items in the machine to wash I just couldn’t bring myself to leave it as a sheet that would hardly be used and then covered with a blanket……so I made myself these!img_5017

So simple, took me all of about 15 mins to make and they actually fit me! Not bad for $2.50 and now what to do with the feft over material?
