the thrift wish list
those of you that op-shop, garage sale, scour council clean ups, travel near and far to visit farm clearing sales and buy pre-loved will probably have one. that little list, often stored away in your head, filled with treasures that you would one day love to come across in your travels. maybe it's a book you had as a child, that final piece of crockery to complete your set or that mid century planter.
on my list..
a liberty print item of clothing. one that ideally fits perfectly or that I can refashion
another vintage sheet in my very favourite design (1st pic). yes I already have one but I can not bear to cut into it. if I had a second one it would become a dress
a milk glass cake stand
patterns- for a cape/poncho and also a mens vest
a church pew or two. I think these look amazing in the hall or on the front verandah
I'd love to hear what's on your thrift wish list. feel free to comment or maybe you'd like to blog about it too.
