Holiday Finds 3- Kids stuff

Finally, the last of the holiday finds. This little baby doll was $4 (I thought it was a bit steep, but they only charged me $2 for the vintage case so I figured it evened out). The baby came with the hand-crotched dress and undies, and her eyes close when you lie her down. She has a soft squashy body which I liked. Now my boys have 4 babies to play with, so I'm hoping there will be less fights. All 4 of the babies were from op shops. :-)

Long sleeve shirts for my 6 year old, he needed some for winter. I averaged around $2 a shirt.

Some long red pants for my 6 year old, for winter. They're cargo pants with adjustable drawstring, $2. I realised later that these were the perfect pants for his winter school sports uniform.
This lovely velvet skirt I spotted and thought of my friend, it fits her beautifully. I love the little frill on the bottom.
This jacket was $2! A lovely fleecy lined jacket with flower embroidery. This is for my friend's daughter, who is my son's best friend.
This jumper is for my friend's son, who is my 3 year old's best friend. I have a bunch of iron-on owl transfers that I picked up from Etsy. I gave one to my friend to put on his jumper, looks fab I think. :-)

And that is the last of my holiday shopping.

Books and Bits

My holiday treasures continues this week with a book post. I'm trying to buy less fiction books these days, due to space issues. But I couldn't resist these non-fiction books. 

Another journeys from the past book! This time about Ancient Rome. I love ancient history, and I was so excited to find this book in fantastic condition. $2.

My Ancient Rome book can join its friends, both of which I've found in op shops. I've finally got enough to call them a collection. :-)

These books were with the Ancient Rome book on the shelf- I'm thinking the same person got rid of them all? These are textbooks for high school. I love the middle ages.

I have a collection of Sing books, being a teacher. For those of you not familiar with them, these music books were published by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) for children, and have a collection of songs inside.

And last of all, a set of scented drawer liners. I've been using brown paper bags in my son's chest of drawers, so it will be great to have some proper liners that don't move around.
