Op Shopping find.



I scouted around a number of op shops this week and was feeling a little despondent until I came across a couple of treasures that I knew would be right at home on my very humble bedroom dresser table. I say humble because the table was purchased by my mum via e-bay in a last minute bid that made it just "too good to be true". It's absolutely gorgeous and fits the room perfectly. Whilst I've played around a little with decorating it, the little adventurous fingers of my small children prevent me from displaying anything keep-sake or valuable. I thought I'd see if they could resist temptation for 24 hours, placing a few rings in the glass jewellery bowl but they literally disappeared in 5 seconds. I was smart enough to plant a few decoy jewellery pieces in the event that I was unable to find them again. My daughter has taken to putting everything in the toilet bowl so I was one step ahead of her (for a change). All my nice perfume, necklaces and earings are relegated to a very high cupboard where unfortunately because I struggle to see them, often don't get used.


My little items that I purchased this week include the glass jewelery bowl with the gold trim and the mirror that I've placed it on. In addition, I found this beautiful jug to add to my vast collection of jugs that I've rescued from Op shops and markets over the last few months.

Hope your flea market/op shopping was a successful one.

I love the idea of using the mirror for the tray. It is so obvious, yet so clever and elegant! A real Oprah ah-ha moment. I passed on an old mirror the other day because the hanging clips were absent. I'm goin' back next week to see if it is still there! xxNick

Thjat really is a nice jug! Whilst sometimes feels neverending the little kid stage really goes by so fast ... remember when they were babes and you never thought you would wear dangly ear-rings again ...?
Pretty things you have found!

The jug is really nice! I know what you mean about the adventurous fingers. I don't have any pretty things out on low shelves either.
