I've been a good girl. Really I have!

Despite the fact that this November is my No-spender I am allowed to buy secondhand doilies and sewing necessities which are defined as things needed to finish projects. 
Taking advantage of this gap in the rules I visited three op shops today and was remarkably restrained in my spending. 
As you can see I picked up some delicious doilies and some very 'essential to sewing' things. 
I can safely say that all of these will be used to finish projects in someone's lifetime.

I did buy this non-essential record though, because my son is VERY keen on Beethoven and I just thought the cover was brilliant. 
Can you imagine it hanging on his wall amongst all those long haired, black clothed other musicians he loves?

O! I forgot.
I did buy one teeny tiny t-shirt for a friends son but that was only 50 cents so I don't think it really counts.


  1. Well done. Well within your rules and I like how it will be used on someone's lifetime

  2. Love the record cover - that will look so cool on the wall!
    I think you've done really well with your shopping this month. I didn't even have the courage to make a pledge

  3. Oh that green table runner (? top left hand corner) is stunning! Utterly utterly stunning.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
