~ Holiday Thrift Finds~




I am back from my break and had a fabulous time. Here are a few things I picked up at a little op shop at the historic town of Ulmarra in NSW. At a grand total of $6 for the lot I was quite pleased. A cute rose vase [complete with a few broken leaves] , a sentimental "mum" vase [ I can never go past these] and a vintage scarf. Hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week.

  27. Simone, my mother in law taught ceramics, & made items like the pretty vase with hand-formed flowers... unfortunately I did not appreciate her talent at the time, & did not pay attention when she wanted to teach me... sigh.
