Dropping in to the op shop after bible study
on a Thursday has become a habit,
since I started shopping at a much better op shop.
The car just seems to know the way and
even without my planning it,
there I am, turning into the carpark.
Today I found a turned wood bowl.
Rough and unpolished.
But after some sanding and oiling ...
I have a beautiful bowl to hold tools in
for my stamping classes
(which I've just begun teaching again)
Why would someone make a bowl and not finish it?
It always makes me wonder.
Remember the quilt I put together out of
But I guess we all have unfinished projects
that need to move on at some point.
But this bowl, like the quilt,
have become useful objects of beauty now,
which makes me happy.
And then there was a little soft crocheted rug.
Yes, I could make one myself,
but I love the colours of this one,
and you just can't have too many rugs in winter ....
I think Laura will love this rug.
The op shop has been good for games lately.
These two historical-themed games today for $2.00 and $3.00,
a few weeks ago the game Loot for just $2.00,
I'd just been tempted to buy it full-price for $22.00
so was very happy.
It's fast becoming one of our favourite games ever.
We'll try these ones on the weekend,
or on second thoughts ... perhaps after the Olympics!
This was the second week I've found some Tupperware,
including the vintage icing sugar duster.
And a pretty glass jar for just 20c.
What goodies have you found lately?
