A little bit of opp shopping.......

Finally had my first Friday off with Ty, whilst kids were at school and creche.
High on our agenda was a movie. I'm sure it's been a good 6 months since we saw a movie together. It's all about DVDs on the couch these days.
That way we don't have to worry about baby sitters e.t.c
Ty's chose Stark trek, bit of a boy thing but it was really good. Spunky main character and not to many black holes and parallel universes to confuse me. So it was all good.

On to a yummy lunch of chicken and veggie laksa, then what day is complete without a spot of opp shopping to score a bargain or two.

Movies were at highpoint, so we travelled back past Sydney Rd and popped into good old Savers.
For those of you who don't know, Ty and I met at Savers 10 years ago. He was the furniture guy, and I was a cashier. So it's always a blast from the past to shop there.

Today's adventure uncovered a shiny torch,

and this old clock:

A huge piece of retro fabric in browns and yellows and some cookie jars.

The cutest little sesame st beanbag chair, which I'm sure could well be mine from when I was little. I sometimes wonder if things travel around from house to house then come full circle and end up back where they started. You never know.
Next, another golden hands book.

I love the illustrations throughout, and just have to laugh at the page on how to iron your husbands shirt!

As if.


  1. Tinniegirl and I went to Savers on Friday too! You must have go there before me to find that fabulous fabric!

  2. It sounds like a fabulous day out. Love that gorgeous clock.

  3. Awww... how cute that the two of you met there!! What a gorgeous story. Nice finds, too!
