Truth is...I'm supposed to be writing another post right now about the amazing weekend of painting and discovering we just shared with the beautiful Miss Flora Bowley....will definitely be doing that sometime over the weekend but its going to be a long one..so much to say and show...so stay posted!! In the meantime just had to share my op shop finds from yesterday. Finished work and am officially on 2 and a half weeks holiday....so where is the first place I head? The local op shop of course! For all my O/S friends the "op-shop" in Australia is short for Opportunity Shop (don't you just love that?!) and is roughly equivalent to the American thrift store. So I take 2 steps into the shop and run headlong into my friend Pam who says " Tracy! I have something for you!!" (ooooh a surprise! I love surprises!) So Pam has been carrying around a gorgeous basket in her car, hoping to run into me.Her mum purchased it in Mexico sometime in the fifties and Pam wanted to give it to someone who would appreciate it..she was a little worried I might find it a bit kitschy but no way...I love it!!!
Thank you so much for thinking of me Pam! So after I tucked my beautiful new/old basket in the car I headed back inside and came across some vintage curtains (circa 1970) all orange and olive with gorgeous designs..had to have those! This morning I cut them up for my kids workshop next week in which we will be making gratitude flags.....did I mention I LOVE the Op shop!!
Back later with all the exciting Flora workshop news! have a blissful day my bloggy(what a weird word!) friends.....
