Flea Market Finds

Oh this has been a great week for thrifting!  Too busy shopping to photograph it all - I will pick out my favorites and post next week I think.

Discovered some great op shops at the Gold Coast when I went down to pick up my littlies from their holiday with my Ma.  Might be worth another drive in future - is that a bit strange?  Most people go to the Gold Coast to go to the beach, not visit op shops....

Anyways, scored this little tea set for the Little Miss.  She is a bit obsessed with tea cups and the like at the moment, as we are having a Mad Hatters Tea Party for her birthday in July.  We are scrounging the oppies for tea cups and saucers to use at the party and to make into take home gifts.  

She is a good op-er, my Little Miss, "oh Mummy, this tea cup is just divine is it not..."

    I still treasure my china tea set that I had when I was a child. SO much so that I have not let my kids play with it, very much against the norm for me as I normally let them get into everything.
