Treasure again...

It is sunday, which means yesterday was saturday, which means I went out thrifting with my similarly addicted mummy! There were NO JUMBLE SALES yesterday (our usual haunt) so we had to get our fix from a tour round charity shops instead. But oh what a lovely haul I got!

Vintage sewing bits - buttons to cover, a battered old silver thimble, and what I am hoping is a crochet hook (?), along with a little felt purse and some badges made from vintage material

Vintage pyrex bowls, 50p for them all

3 vintage pyrex plates, 20p each

My mum already had this flask lurking in her cupboard, so she sent me home with it as she doesnt share my shabby chic sense of style!

And I shamelessly nicked these shoes she had thrifted for herself on a recent trip without me!

I also got yet another stack of bargain clothes, which I haven't photographed, and I still have to show you my favourite finds - some vintage bedding for my new bedding makeover project! ;)


  1. I found some pyrex recently, my mum always turns her nose up but I love it.

  2. We had those pyrex dishes as kids!!!! I think the hook is for making rugs - could be wrong - I have one and I think it is for making those rag rugs.....another project I yearn to do - ish.


Thank you for all your comments! I get ridiculously pleased whenever I get one! xxx
