Latest Finds & Blog Purchases

These are my latest finds and treasures. Apologies for the long post, but due to my issue with uploading photos I am way behind. These are the flowers my sons girlfriend gave me for my birthday recently - so I send them to you my lovely followers and hope you have a lovely day.

An adorable basket for $4

 This gorgeous fine vintage linen cushion cover for $3

 The pleated cushion behind was $1.50. The Fraser & Co is a purchase from Marley & Lockyer.(beautifully made) I also purchased a floral stocking and some clay tags - these are also gorgeous but for some reason unable to upload so will show you in my next latest finds post.
 Quickly made the bed for the pic, a bit messy I know!!
 This gorgeous linen tablecloth for $2 (yes i ironed it quickly) and the bowl for 50c I painted the inside white.

 This gorgeous jar for $10 from a Sydney store - brought it all the way home on the plane without a break!
This jar was almost full last week - I think theres a jelly bean stealer in the house!(Glucojel brand only)
 Crochet and stitch work cushion cover for $2.50.
 Cane stool for $4, not sure if I will spray this in my new favorite blue or keep it as is. Bella the unhappy cat thinking I dont know she is there!
My beautiful and luxurious soaps from the lovely Pam @ Bayside Rose. I purchased a lemon myrtle and a patchouli, and the lavendar is a simply divine fragrance on the skin. They are a lovely creamy lather and nice to know all made with natural ingredients and she has made these herself in her home. The bag I purchased is made from vintage fabrics and is beautifully made by Pam. I have just made another purchase for some Christmas gifts.

If you dont already follow Ness and Pam, pop on over and take a look at their blog. They are both very talented and lovely girls. Enjoy your Thursday. I am off to the Tourism Awards for a black tie event this evening and then another girls night in Adelaide on Friday and maybe some Christmas shopping.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
