Well my heart definitely skipped a beat when I spotted this shopping cart on my brief visit to an op shop on Wednesday. I had to look around to see if some granny actually owned it and then I saw the price tag. $5!
I have been on a quiet hunt for a floral shopping cart for about 6 years now. I have only ever seen about 4 of them, and they usually belong to a granny. So you can imagine my delight when I found this one. It even came in my favourite colours.
Now I just need to go shopping! Tomorrow might be the perfect day to start at the Newcastle Art Bazaar at Civic Park, 9am till 3pm. There are 80+ stalls with around 100 artists on display! BTW, my fashion design class are having a stall there, so I should be there for most of the day.
The Christmas Tree is up. We have tried to keep it simple. It is covered in a silver tinsel that I had bought at the op shop years ago. In fact, it was unused and still had the 15 feet label wrapped around all 3 packs. So either they are very old or have come from the States!
Our parents have been in the habit of each sending us a Christmas decoration for the past 5 years, and along with a handful of other collected decorations, that was enough to fill our little tree.
There are no lights this year. I think we have decided to simply save some energy. I might keep an eye out for some second hand ones at the World's Biggest Car Boot Sale this Sunday on in Newcastle, Australia.
