A Happy Expedition...

My little guy & I stopped in at the op shop with some time to kill on the way to school one afternoon, you just never know your luck...

 a sweet crocheted cushion & jar cover, a stool in need of some love & $8 Country Road jeans!!
(you may have seen my stool makeover in 'my creative space' this week)

I have to tell you, I was extremely excited to find the jeans, I find them a nightmare to shop for generally.  As for this pair...firstly they are just my size & secondly they look really good on (if I do say so myself)!  Since taking on the dottie angel challenge of the utmost kind I was getting a little worried about my winter wardrobe, given that I can only buy second hand or handmade clothes for the next 12 months!  So... SCORE!!
To play along with this weeks Flea Market Finds pop on over to Sophie's.

  1. the jeans are a great find! i'm doing dottie angel challenge and wardrobe refashion too. I hardly buy any new clothes usually but sometimes you need a key piece and that's when it really is a challenge.

  10. Yeah isn't it great when you find the perfect pair of jeans from the oppie! I'd love to do the dottie challenge too but I feel a bit nervous about being able to do it... we'll see maybe I'll do it soon.
