Some Garage Sale Finds

Don't you love a good garage sale.  This one I went to on Saturday was a treasure.
Another cupboard for my sewing room, the same size as the one we just bought at the furniture shop last week, only this one was a very expensive $5.  Will get around to painting them both at some stage, but in the meantime they are both getting rather full.
Aren't these doilies just beautiful - just $1 each. Never ceases to amaze me that people can bare to part with treasures like these. 

I did also find one other treasure - all the pieces for a post and rail quilt in beautiful flannels, partly sewn together for 50 cents.  The photo hasn't downloaded properly, so will show you that tomorrow.
My gorgeous grandie went home yesterday, so very quiet here today, but she had been dying to have a day at the beach, so we headed off for a day at Warrnambool - such a beautiful day and  she had a ball in the water and building sandcastles. not to mention shopping - going to be a shopaholic that one, lol.

 Hope you have all had a lovely Australia Day weekend. I know this crazy weather has put a damper on things on the east coast of Australia - warm and fires in Victoria, fires and floods in New South Wales and Queensland. Thinking of you all. Cheryl
