Thrifty finds...

I have been visiting Janelle Winds blog for the last few months and have been amazed at all the beautiful clothes that she has found at her local op shop. We do have a local vinnies store here in town, which I have been to a couple of times for our boys, who just don't seem to stop growing...11 and 14 year olds in men sizes already!!!
Anyhow after reading Janelles Thrifty Finds today and seeing all her gorgeous clothes, I thought I might head to vinnies for a look for 'me', and was so surprised to find these...

A lovely crochet edged cardi...just love crochet!

And a denim jacket, which I think would look great with one of my crochet scarves. I went on a bit of a scarf making frenzy a few years back and just about made one in every colour! lol!
So I have to say I'm pretty pleased at today's finds and will be a frequent visitor to my local vinnies!

Bye for Now
