tuesday (thrifted) treasures.

so this week, some new treasures. well new for me anyway.
first up, an AMAZING armchair.
found on the front lawn of one of my neighbours... hard rubbish is my favourite time of the year :D
it's in near perfect condition, except for a little rip in one of the arms. but look, i can cover it with a crochet blankie. just like new.

and while making a costume for a fancy dress party during the week, lookie what i found in my local opshop. it's a little shabby, and you have to punch the buckle to get it to close, but it's so purrrrrrrdy.

and what it fits inside of it is even more exciting :D
it fits my whole ripple-in-progress inside. AND spare wool. i thought i'd have to buy one of those big awful plastic canvas bags from the $2 shop because nothing else would be able to hold it. luckily i found this, much nicer.
i love the red satin lining :D

pop over to clare's craftroom to discover some more treasures.
and thanks everyone for your loving last week. it's a bit of a sad time but everyone's comments are incredibly thoughtful and made me smile! thanks again!
