What a haul!!!!.....

Well what a lovely day I had yesterday when I once again caught up with my friend Karen and we "terrorised" the Blue Mountains, scouring some more antique shops for some "fabby" finds! Some of the items are from a prior purchase this week...but I am sure that you wont mind me sharing them all together!

I will keep my post short and sweet this time as I am pressed for time but I thought you may enjoy sharing some pictures of what I was able to find.

A picture of my "haul"...lol

I plan to age and distress this great little cot a bit more...the grubby ticking matress was an added bonus!...stay tuned for the makeover photos!!


The old reckitts boxes are great...I curbed the urge to buy the old Kraft cheese boxes I saw also. The old Rinso box will look great with the other landry memorabilia in my collection....and a sugar bucket!!!!...woohooo...gunna paint and distress this one also (dont freak out though...its only a repro...lol)
 
More old boxes and some awesome baskets ....although not old they definitely look the part!

 
A great old "Ready Reckoner"....

The inside of it...

 
These bowls are going to get the once over as well....distressed and grubbied....got em nice and cheap!

 
Now I know these aren't old....but theyre lovely...got them from Rick Rutherford's store...and they sure save me a lot of stitching!

 
And this little beauty...well it is something that I have been after for a long while and got it for a song!! I am short a couple of bottles...so if any of you out there have any Watkins Flavouring bottles (pref brown) that you are looking to sell on...I would be most happy to hear from you!


Well thats about it from me for this time...hope you enjoyed seeing my stash. I will be sure to show you the update pictures once I have had time to get stuck into the few pieces that I want to revamp.


Till next time ....
