I bought these numbers well over a year ago, when we first bought this house, and I have been waiting since then to get them up on our wall. They are made of zinc and should get lovely and rusty over time...probably staining our newly painted wall in the process, but that is o.k. with me...
Here's one of the numbers for you to look at
they should throw wonderful shadows on the wall too...
I'll let you know.
I love ticking off jobs on our to do list. We've still got masses of work ahead of us, but we're getting there...it's a good feeling that's for sure.
Okey-dokey that's enough talk about our renovations... before I share a few more of last Wednesday's treasures I want to show you the very special vintage Bucilla latch pillow kit I received from Brittany yesterday
pretty groovy isn't it...such a fab prize
I hope I can do it justice and that it looks as good as it does in the picture when I've finished it. It was so kind of Brittany to send me this all the way from the States and with such a gorgeous home-made card too.
Alrighty, back to Wednesday's op-shop finds:
pretty in pink
a lovely mirror... only two dollars!
another first aid kit
and recently re-stocked so it seems...
pretty Hobbytex wall hanging
late 70's/early 80's Melmac to go with these
Majolica-ish pottery bowl...perfect for olives
another mirror, I know it's not as pretty as the pink one but I thought it was funny even if no-one else did! It was only fifty cents and still in it's original box.
Would you believe there's more? (I'll throw in a set of steak knives before you know it!) but I'll show you the rest of it another time, hope you'll be back to check it out x
Here's another tea towel
I really like this one even though it looks like it has dried lots of dishes in its time...
