Shopping, shopping and more shopping

I seem to have been Op Shopping every day last week, some things were taken to Nth Melbourne market, some haven't even been unpacked yet!  Here's a few I just unpacked,
Book on how to tie Scarves (hee hee Sophie has me looking out for these now), some Origami how to books, for the granddaughter, pretty stationery, Golly coathanger, felted purse, crochet doilies,  half completed tapestry.  I also picked up a box of about 150 skeins of embroidery threads, some more fabric, lots more doilies that need TLC,  I think I'm a compulsive shopper these days, and I have to go down Malvern way tomorrow, so I think I'll probably stop off at a few other shops then too.

Oh, and I have a Huge pile of knitting pattern books to sort thru too.
Sophie is celebrating her Blog Birthday today, pop over to her Flea Market Finds, to share your weekly shopping finds, and admit to your addiction too.


  1. the tapestry sure catches my attention; half finished in what way? no framed, you mean? or just not finished embroidering?
    it's an interesting scenery too... ;)

  2. Wow, such lovely things you have found. I particularly love the vintage patterns!
    By the way I am fascinated by your inkwell collection, I don't think I've ever known anyone to collect such a thing before. Totally brilliant I bet you have a wonderful collection.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. x

  3. @woolfie♥ - actually more than 1/2 finished, it has been worked in embroidery cottons, not wool, and there is really just the pathway and a little detail on the house to finish (sorry you cant see it, it is under the scarf book!), and of course needs framing.

  4. I am so needing an opshop fix am in Brisy at the mo and the captain is the driver so not going anywhere oppy related boo hoo
