Op Shop Bargains

This weeks finds-
More Johnson plates and a bowl. The cupboards are becoming overrun with them. Not that I'm complaining.

The Avocado Cookbook. I'm keen to give the Chilled Avocado Soup, Avocado Quiche and Meringue Pie a try.

This nutcracker, $2.. it works a treat with those very persistent macadamia nuts.

This nutcracker made its way with us as we walked (and struggled, well I did anyway) up North Brother Mountain. Up the top, we enjoyed lunch and a few freshly cracked maccie nuts, with this little friendly fellow joining us at the table.

With a view like that, the nearly 3km long slog up the mountain was worth it (and upon returning home I realised I had provided lunch for a now very fat leech).


  1. kitchen cupboards full of johnson plates = heaven! love your finds.

  2. love the dishes!
