Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Today I'm showing you a few knick-knacks I picked up in thrift stores (op shops) while on a day out with a couple of neighbours.
The day began with the op shops, lunch was had at a hotel, then a visit to a neighbour who had moved out of the city to a small hills area town and now has more space than she knows what to do with.
We finished up with a stop at another thrift store on our way back to the city.
this beautiful little owl was my first find and I was so happy to find him,
look how well his colour matches with my things.
this charming little bracelet fit my wrist perfectly, so I left it on and handed over the amount on the price tag, $3
this is blurry, but maybe you can see the silver pieces each side of the central blue bead are Buddhas
a little something that isn't wood as I first thought, I'm not sure what it is, but I like the kitty on the face of it, she stands out a bit, isn't just painted on, so I think this is some kind of pottery or ceramic work, but not glazed.
a small pottery goblet
a little purple elephant with a silver bead necklace
now leads the line-up on top of my kitchen cabinet
and I have since found these three jewelled girls to add
I also found this tiny ceramic skull, not even 2 inches high, painted with a different coloured flower on top, back and sides.
I know, I know, dust catchers, but I like them.
