op shop love

Had to get over my birthday blues for the big day tomorrow, so today I thought I'd hit the local op shops for some guilt free retail therapy.

Picked up a great little angora cardigan which appeared to be half felted, obviously it was an accident that has worked in my favour! Another hot wash and a go in the drier and it will be fabulous!

Found a really pretty pillowcase, some fabulous tea towels and a lime green chenille bedspread. Also found a really nice Esprit cotton argyle vest for a tiny $3.00. Great day!

Great finds. That angora get my creative juices going. I think I have one of the tea towels you have pictured. Is it flowers of Australia? There were actually two in the thrift store when I bought but I had reached my 'limit'. Are there more souvenir tea towels in the country they represent or in the countries of the visitors? Mine were in a thrift store here in Canada.
