a few new things …

Ok, it’s a quick blog today.  On Saturday I went to Spensely Street Primary School fete and got so much great stuff.

Including this lovely Olga Berg bag.  I’ve got a couple of Olga Berg bags.  They always catch my eye.

And this fab. red necklace that is made of silicon (I think it might be one of those chewable ones for Mum’s with teething children …clearly that’s not me but I love the necklace anyway).  It looks super with the Juicy Bear red and white striped t-shirt that I bought a while ago at the Salvos op shop at Anglesea.

And speaking of which, I also bought this black Juicy Bear long sleeve t-shirt at the Spensely Street fete.  Black long sleeve tops are my stand by.

And this dark grey drapey linen Essence top/vest.  It looks really nice on. I bought it with Elise in mind, but I think I’ll keep it for myself.  And the necklace in the photo you have seen before.  I got it at Westgarth fete last weekend.  It matches the new pants I bought on Thursday at Camberwell Salvos that are sage green.

And I got lots of stuff for the kids at Spensely Street as well,  including this Fred Bear t-shirt and this super kitsch hello kitty hand knit for Scarlett.  They’re pink and cute so she loves them both (when you are 6 it’s all about pink isn’t it?  I’m OK with that).

And there’s so much more, more, more …  I think I might need to get realistic about capacity in our house and have a bit of a wardrobe cull.  Maybe I’ll start tomorrow.

i love blue (but I definitely don’t need it)

On Tuesday I popped into the op shop in the carpark at Fairfield shops.  And ran into the lovely Ril and Elena.  Elena bought the best necklace and Ril got a super apron. I nearly left empty handed.  But then I came across this china.

And I couldn’t resist THE WHOLE LOT for $2. That was calculated at 20 cents a piece by the lady in the shop. I really don’t need it.  So, I have packed it away (I’ll have to have a china clearing sale one day I think for all the bargains I couldn’t resist).  Anyway, before I packed them away I took a few snaps.

There are nine pieces of matching J&G Meakin china with lovely blue roses.

And then this cute little Johnson Bros. side plate. I love this blue colour so much and it looks great with the gold.
