more Finds for the week.. ..

I have already reported on some of my finds this week. I was out and about quite a lot, and did quite well finding things.  I particularly liked this hand crocheted 6-sided piece, just the right size to pop on my lap while I type without dragging on the floor, and catching in the wheels of my typing chair. 
Then there was a counted cross stitch kit, almost completed of  an  Angel, she was sweet and I'm sure I will find someone to finish her off, especially as she came with a heap of cottons (probably from other unfinished cross stitching projects).  I'm always sad when I find things like that in Op Shops,  who started and then didn't finish them, and why?

Snowman Teacosy.. a brown snowman? mmmm bit different, but he is rather cute don't you think?
I'll link this over to Sophie's Flea Market Finds, my favourite place to visit to catch up on what everyone has been finding this week.

Hope you all find dozens of wonderful things next week. I have plans to visit at least 2 areas I don't usually get to, and a few I visit every week.


  1. Thank you for visiting my blog. I love the little crochet lap blanket. I also think the brown snowman Teacosy is cute too. Great finds! Thanks for sharing them.

  2. I feel the same sadness when i find handmade things in op shops too, it makes one ponder why such things ended up being donated. How funny - a brown snowman! Cute

  3. That crochet lap blanket is a great size.
    Thanks for your very lovely comments on T&G, Lyndel. It was your comment about your granddaughter taking photos with her camera that made me decide to keep that blog open. I'll just pull back on how often I post.
    You're a sweetie and I hope to meet you at the North Melbourne Markets soon.
