Treasure's.....

This afternoon I was out in the garden doing my thing when out in the distance I saw a sweet little fairy...
When I called her over and asked what she was up to she promptly answered "picking treasure's Mummy", and boy what treasure's they were....
A bucket full of them actually, little yummy cherry tomato treasure's......
The last 3 days have seen me travel just over 1200km's... I've been down visiting my Mum in the Riverina, catching up before the hectic festive season settles in.... On the way there I pass through a town with the most precious little op-shop... I love stopping in there and this trip I picked up a square of linen and a bundle of knitting/crochet books...
These are some of my favourites from the batch of books I bought....
The most expensive of the lot was $1 with the cheapest being 10c, can you believe it??? They just don't make pattern books like these any more!!!! I also scored the linen for a wee 20c!!! I love this shop and always find new and exciting treasures to bring home with me each and every visit... So if you're every passing through Ungarie you really must stop in, it's up the end of the main street opposite the Police station, I'm sure you'll find a boot full of treasures to take home with you... ;)
Take Care..... Jodie.....

  2. What a gorgeous little fairy you have in your garden Jodie! I love those knitting books, what wonderful finds they are. I have a few vintage ones, mostly from my mum who still knits up some of those patterns. I dont know if I will knit them up anytime soon either as most are in 3 ply and very tiny needles.
