Thrifty Finds...

We managed to get to a couple of garage sales today, always a lovely way to pass a Saturday morning & a very worthwhile effort as it happens...
perfect for our kitchen with the addition of some sweet door handles...

enormous basket - apparently he was sorry he had to charge me a whole $8 for this but it is an antique!

and at $2 each how could I go past these little gems...

and of course Mr Plod & yet another Buzz who apparently was calling out for us to take him home to join all the other Buzz Lightyears we have picked up from op shops & garage sales!

Hope your all having a very happy weekend!

  9. There was a basket like that out for council pick up once when I was running for my ferry. I nearly missed the boat (the real one) while pondering how I'd explain carrying the basket on my trip, and back.

  13. Great cupboard. It reminds me of the cupboard I use in my bedroom. It looks very similar and has little ceramic blue knobs just like yours. Beautiful finds. Melinda xo
