I hope as always this post finds you well & happy....! Following the heat over the weekend Melbourne has had two days of rain....Alas....As MUCH as we need it, it's DEVASTATING for those of us who like to 'shop' the Hard Rubbish as perfectly WONDERFUL pieces tend to become soggy messes when it rains....**sigh**....Nevertheless....I did manage to snag this BEAUTIFUL painting yesterday....She was sitting under a tree on top of a box & was PERFECTLY dry when I spied her....**HAPPY DANCE in the middle of the street**....!!!!!!
This is by far & away the OLDEST painting I've ever found....PRE Victorian at a guess....!
She has a couple of tears which hemming tape at the back will fix enough for me to enjoy her....LUCKILY, these MINOR (to me) blemishes are nowhere near her beautiful face & torso....!!!
I'm getting a head start on Mr SVJ's Christmas present with this book....He's a Master Cabinet Maker so I'm hoping the 'amateur' reference won't offend him as he DOES think quite highly of his skills....!!
The calendar tea towel was a LUCKY find this morning....It's the FIRST one I've found 'in the wild' in almost 10 years....KEEPER....!!
Love....LOVE....L-O-V-E vintage bias, ric-rak & hem tape & ALWAYS snap it up when it crosses my path....!
SPUNKY red Faigen leather clutch & Aussie Oroton purse....Straight to the POOL ROOM with these...hahahahaha....**wink**....!
Did a little happy JIG in the Op-Shop when I spied this linen tea towel with union jack motif....!!
Well that it's from me for the day....I'm hoping to get around tonight to visit some of my FAVE blogs....FINGERS CROSSED....!
Cheers for now,
