New old lovely things!

My new found passion would have to be op shopping for pre-loved objects that are filled with character and at a bargain price! Here are a few recent finds.
 A pretty, girly queen sixed sheet in as new condition, gorgeous saucers to add to my ever growing collection and cotton thread and buttons in 'my' colours.
 Swans, not something I usually go for but I think they are really sweet and couldn't leave them behind.
 Tea cup and saucer set were a gift from a lovely friend, a bunny-just because I LOVE bunnies.
 More cute bunnies, how cuuuute!
 Here is something a little bit special. It is my Mum's sewing box that was given to her for her 21st back in the 70's.
The contents have been around for as long as I can remember, some things belonged to my Nanna and it really takes me back to my childhood where I would always look through the box and dabble with our old singer sewing machine. The box itself has seen better days, the lid is no longer attached, but I would never part with it.

I hope this has inspired you to head out to the nearest charity shop and give something old a new home and a new story. xx
