More Thrifty Finds

Hello Blog World and to my fellow Aussies Happy Australia Day!!

Not doing much today as the weather is terrible but I did pick up my new hutch this morning so now I can’t wait to redo it!!!!

So I was at the hairdressers with my daughter the other night and while I was waiting for her to get done, I went for a walk outside and there was a thrift shop there but it was closed.  Didn’t stop me from looking in the window though and I spotted something I liked!!! So after dropping her to school the next morning I rushed straight over there and look at what I picked up for $8!!!!!!!

It’s a good 50cm tall and has a shelf on the inside, and look what else I found on the inside.

It just done in sharpie so easy to go over, but it’s interesting to see,I wonder who it belonged to in a previous life??

What I didn’t spot in the window but spotted while walking around the shops were these two beauties.

$3.50 for this bird cage, this stands about 30cm tall, and while I now realise the photo makes it look bent it’s not.  I am very pleased with this find as bird cages like this brand new range from $20 – $70 depending on how big and where you get it.

My last find at the shop is this very unique and interesting clock and only $6!!

It’s a two faced clock! I had never seen one before, but you spin it around and there is a clock on the other side and both sides work! You can either hang it or sit it on a shelf etc…

I don’t know but for some reason it reminds me of Cinderella’s carriage.

Someone has painted a dirty gold colour over the top of the lovely cream, but that will be easily fixed! I thought the clock and birdcage went really well together.

So at $17.50 I was really pleased with my trip and now besides all my hand appliqueing I have heaps of redo’s to do!! Busy times ahead.

Well back to hand sewing, Happy Australia Day everyone and until later Happy Crafting.
