Op Shop pickings

 It is very slim pickings at our Op Shop, it has been for a couple of years now. There is never any Vintage kitchenalia or anything of interest. Rumour has it that the Manager might have a nice stash at the back of her house but that is just a rumour. I did manage to find a couple of vintage aprons that will eventually be incorporated in a quilt. The faded fabrics give the quilts instant age and are quite beautiful.

 And these tea towels. I'm not sure what I will do with them yet but I couldn't leave them behind. Especially that poor little man doing his best to help.

The Grand kids have settled into routine and Munchie keeps herself to herself most of the time, but Atticus is certainly on a mission to make sure we don't forger he is around.
I found him in here yesterday.

My daughter always told me how she never had a vase of flowers in her house because Atticus eats them. Mostly he just bites the tops off and leaves a vase of stalks!

Love your vintage linens Jackie! I can see your beautiful quilts now. Oh that Atticus, what a character! LOL! ~*~Lisa

Watch out now that the opshop lady knows that tea towels are valuable too!
I think Atticus is telling you that you need to improve your flower arranging skills!

A flower eating cat! How peculiar!

Loving the tea towels from the op shop. Bet that rumour is true though if you don't find any kitchen stuff...

Looks like the Grandies have settled in and proving to be very entertaining.

The tea towels were a good score especially if the good stuff is rare round your parts. Same thing has been happening here - I can often tell just by looking at the Manager if the place is going to be worthwhile.
