With my husband being home from hospital after heart surgery for the past month, I haven't been able to leave the house to go opshopping for extended periods of time. But today I took the chance to pop into our local treasure trove, and found some nice bits and pieces to cheer me up!
There was a whole box of craft magazines that I quickly browsed through, but I was good, and only allowed myself this one for 50c. It had a bonus freebie, which helped me decide to buy it - the scissors case kit in the next picture. I have been meaning to make myself one of these for ages - good timing!
A length of lace $2.50, to add to my stash of laces. $2.50 might sound a lot, but there appears to be a quite a few metres there.
Cute drawstring dilly bag for $1 - I can't resist anything that looks remotely Japanese! Don't know what I'll put in it; I might even put a little gift inside it for one of my friends who also love Japanese and Chinese crafty items.
Can't resist gingham either! Sweet little cloth for $2.50 embellished with ric rac - simple but effective.
