Beads and Bandanas

This is the second part of my shop last week, and boy did I get some goodies. This bag is a lovely shade of blue (the colour is a little darker that the photo) and which I bought specifically to go with a dress of a similar colour.

 These beads are so pretty! A dark red bracelet, a blue-green set of beads which looks like woven silk, and a set of retro red beads.

I love the cheery robots on the bandana. The long pretty flower scarf is perfect for a headband, or tied 50s style on a ponytail.

 This cardi is perfect for the warmer weather, and such a pretty knit, with its scalloped bottom. I tend to veer away from pastel colours, especially white, but I thought a soft cream might be doable.

May your op shopping adventures be just as fruitful as mine!

Hi all, I just had a fantastic haul at the op shop, so I'm going to divide it into a few posts.
This post is kids toys, next post will be clothes and jewelry.

A Diego doll and a motorbike. Mr3 is enjoying Diego, and both boys are loving the motorbike.

This is my favourite find of the shopping trip. A wooden chess set, with all its pieces, $5. Mr 6 has been interested in chess, but I only have a small glass chess set, which isn't ideal. This set is perfect.

A set of marble runs with the marbles. My boys already have more of this set at home, so now they will have more scope to build their marble runs. It came in a plastic container, with a little container full of marbles. This basket is also from the op shop, and I thought it looked better in it.

That's all for today, see you next week with some more goodies!
