A little thrifting
part of my bookbinding
course is learning to repair an old book so what a great excuse to do some thrift shopping...on Friday I met my friend Patty for a quick coffee and afterwards off I went in search of a tattered book but look what else I found?
a 60's clutch purse full of faux pearl necklaces - all mine for just $3.00! beautiful shades of lusture...pretty pretty!

i also found some sweet childrens books - darling illustrations that make me smile! a good thrifting day it was!!

Just wanted to say 'Thank you, thank you...' for all your warm, wonderful comments about my Etsy shop, your encouragement and support is just the BEST!!!!!!

  3. What a find. The clutch looks lovely and all those beads. Will you wear them or make something from them. They'd look pretty on a Christmas tree.

  4. i love old childrens books~ so inspiring~ lovely finds:)

  6. What an ace find! To discover a cool 60s clutch must be great in itself, but to open it and find it full of treasure must have been so exciting!!!
