This is my first post with this fabulous group, although I have been stalking you for a few weeks now! Well, maybe lurking would be a better description than stalking.
I grew up in a family where one does not op. In fact, opping was actively discouraged. Of course I rebelled, and discovered the joy of second hand stores.
Recently I have dedicated myself to crafting ONLY with recycled and reclaimed materials. It has been such a challenge, and I am loving the one-of-a-kind items which I create. You can check out my blog if you'd like to see what I get up to. Anyhow, it means that I spend lots of time opping for craft materials, jumpers to unravel or felt, bed linen to strip into rags... all manner of goodies!
I also collect vintage suitcases... just for fun
My latest purchases were from the Riddells Creek op shop...
this fabulous case, purchase for $4
and this teaspoon thingy... can anyone help me with the proper name for it? Anyway, I have been wanting one for ages... so although the price was a bit steep, I shelled out the 20 cents and took it home with me!
