Op Shop Treasure...

I love me some Op Shopping... I can spend a lot of time looking for bargains and bric-a-brac... Joy of Joys! Here are some of the goodies I have found... SOME...

Retro cookie container in the fill-a-bag for $3 of bric-a-brac bin.

Three suitcases for a $1 each for possible storage or for using in my brothers up and coming nuptials

Love this $3 beauty! Chuck a tealight in it and hang it up.

This was in the fill-a-bag thing. I have splashes of red in my lounge, it goes with my three stacked teapots I scored for $2 each.

Love this bottle vase, I got it a night market for $5?

This is for ravioli I think. If I ever want to make pasta this baby is coming out.

What treasures have you found lately???

Crafty Tart in Holiday mode...

Holidays give me time to craft it up and this is what I love to do. I would love to craft and create fulltime if it was feasible!  I would live in some craftutopia with like minded craftians. Ahhh blissssss....

SNAP OUT OF IT! Back to reality.

 So far these holidays I have made a bag for my classmate.

And I repurposed my op shop tray

 Then my sister came over, she has just moved and wanted a Bag bag so I crocheted her one.

Then I saw this branchy thing on Choice tv that inspired me to make some thing from branches and sticks I had hoarded away to make a mobile.

And there is still a few more days to go...

Then back to study... Craftutopia where are you and can I come...

Instagram you da man!

Instagram, making the mundane exciting...

It took my awhile to get on the Instagram bandwagon but I'm glad I did. Its like having a little peek in to someones life. Being the social, nosey person that I am I enjoy seeing what food you ate today, what interesting unusual thing you saw, what you look like without your make-up, what your child is up too, looking at your selfies, looking at the scenic shot, what you baked, what friends you were out with today, that thing you made, that cool saying that inspired you, that funny picture that cracked you up, that cool op shop buy you scored, the shoes your wearing today, that unknown thing that I'm not sure what it is... Thanks Instagram for being another thing that takes up my time, but in a good way.
