green theme

My short blogging absence was the result of that cold coming back and leaving me rather tired and achy. But things seem much better this morning, thank goodness. I'm not very good at resting while sick, and to be honest I don't really have a lot of choice with hubby at work all day, but I find that frequent breaks while doing the everyday jobs, helps get me through. Fittingly it rained all day.

I thought I would share with you a few thrifty finds that I picked up late last week at the op shop and a few more at our local recycling centre, otherwise known as the tip.


From St Vincent de Paul : Green glasses, English bowls and mini dessert moulds. 


From our recycling shop : Old worn book, old verse which is stated as being "Quoted by His Majesty the King in an Empire Broadcast" (sadly the frame is crumbling but I don't have the heart to pull it out), two rustic, handmade pottery pieces that I'm already using for my sewing bits and pieces,  handmade by "Cheryl" as is engraved on the back. Thank you Cheryl, I do appreciate your handiwork. And a beautifully worn, green handled rolling pin.

Well, as I type it seems the cloud is clearing slightly. Wishing you a fine day wherever you are.

  6. gorgeous green...
    I often think about the people who have scribbled their names on the bases of their pottery creations...
    I'm glad you appreciate Cheryl's handiwork and that her little piece has found a nice new home.

  7. Loving the green glassware! Aren't you absolutely hanging to know who Cheryl is? Whenever I buy a book that has a name inside, I can't help but wonder who they are and why they gave up the book!

  10. It's funny how some colours we are drawn to, for me it is green, and then there are others that I feel almost chose you. I love your finds.
