Latest Purchases/Finds

These are my latest purchases and op shop finds...

From Letitia @ The White Shed I recently bought these at her Winter Shopping Evening - what a gorgeous display of homewares, and a beautiful girl
Love pears

bought two of these placmats, and this gorgeous jug/pitcher

and these bookends.
Take a look at her blog, she is launching her online store this Friday.

I bought some tags and magnets recently from Michelle @ The Paper Tree Design, she has some really beautiful items
will be using one of these bird tags on my gift for my best friend this weekend

She creates these from old books sourced from op-shops

loving owls at the moment

and these gorgeous magnets (sorry photo not very clear) have 'love', 'xoxo',
a love heart, an owl and various other words/symbols on them (holding up my invite to my great nieces birthday)
Everything is beautifully made.

I also purchased this latte cosy for my girlfriend from made by DJ Treasures

Browsing through the op-shops on a rare day to dawdle, I found these items

Two clutch bags for $3 each
This silver tray with little ball feet for $2
and this for $3 - think I need some little apples or a topiary from Letitia's store for this.

Hope you are enjoying your week

  1. oh, I love all of your purchases. I have been debating whether to grab one of those jugs from Letitia. I really like the look of them. Enjoy all of your goodies they will look great in your house and I agree a little topiary ball would look good in that little vase or dish. Enjoy your weekend. ;-)

  2. Bec, of course I LOVE your purchases from me at The White Shed but I do love all of the others too! Nice pic of you and the kids on the side too. Thanks for the mention! Letitia xx
