First up, YES, I have moved all my stuff into the garden shed, had a wonderful 2 days of clean up, re-arranging, setting up spots for things. Most is in plastic tubs, with all clothing, washed, ironed, and sorted into categories, winter dresses, coats, jackets, summer dresses, etc. hanging in clothing bags and all neat! yippee.
Had quite a few good finds this week, the best certainly being the PARTY LIGHTS in a box indicating they were made by Wing Industries of Box Hill, Vic (right near where I live!!).
there are 8 glass coloured lights (and a spare), and four glass 'fancy' lights. A Bird, A Chinese lantern, A Cottage, and a Bird in a Cage. How wonderful. Vic says it is too risky to try them out, but they do have a plug (just a bit old).
I am sure there were other bits and pieces too, but with all this sorting and packing and tidying up, they have disappeared into boxes somewhere.
As usual I'll hook up with all the other Thrifty Thrifters over at Sophies this week.
Friday Night Vic and I attended the opening of the Hottie Exhibition at The Open Drawer, and were amazed by the work and thought that went into making these lovely Hot Water Bottle Covers in such a variety of fabrics and styles. We met so many fellow bloggers on the evening, and had a lovely time. Cam from Curly Pops has written a full preview.. thanks Cam.
