Looky what I got!

I received my Op Shop Swap package from my partner Margaret today and boy does she know how to op shop!

Mine mine all mine!

I got a gorgeous fabric bag, mannequin with pins, 2 great kids patterns, some cute teddy bear lace, 2 reels of lace, a christmas book mark and some white cotton lace and a very cool Singer Sewing book that is in absolutely mint condition.

I have just had time for a flick through it all but I will share some of the gems in the sewing book next time I post.

Thanks Margaret, I love all of it! And thank you to Jody for hosting the swap. This is the first time I have participated in any kind of swap thingy in blogland and it was really great fun (I did of course pick up a number of things for myself while shopping for Margaret!).

And I did learn Rule of Life #173 the hard way: do not let 5 year old girls open your mail. Ever. They will claim all the loot for themselves! And they are very good at hiding things in secret places.


  1. You did very well - I love the photo of your daughter firmly gripping the mannequin and her sweet elfish grin while coveting the patterns - you're going to be busy having fun with your treasure.

    Thankyou for joining in the Swap - so glad you enjoyed it.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. What a cute little girl, and I can't blame her for claiming some of the loot! LOL.
