Well hello and welcome to High Maintenance Hippy 2013!
I'm hoping to get it together and post lots of fabulous things this year, regularly, but we'll see shall we?
I haven't really been op shopping much over the last few months. The Munchkin usually says no these days, and I haven't had many outings by myself other than the wild OMG-I-have-1-million-jobs-to-do-and-an-hour-to-do-them pay day "outings", not quite the same.
However, I did convince her that we could have just a quick little look on Wednesday (hehe) and scored big time! All these gorgeous cottons and stands and even a metal crochet hook for $10!! Oh yes! There was no way that was staying behind. There are vintage wooden reels and some colours I didn't have, and I have been putting off going to Spottie and buying the stands. Look how pretty they all are colour sorted! Sigh...
I also found a few other great things I had been after like some vintage small wooden bowls for Waldorf inspired wee person eating, a new dog basket, some books for The Munchkin, a game, a sweet crochet Toshi hat and a replacement vintage thermos for those tea emergencies while cooling in the park with friends... all for $30. Money well spent I say.
At the moment I am saving the tastes of Summer with some bottling and preserving.... will be back to share soon.
I hope you are all safe and sound with the awful bushfires and heat waves raging?
