Brilliant finds that's for sure. Especially love Shot #2 - that fabric and table cloth are divine and also the pillow cases are so sweet... And I love all the mugs and jugs. Funny, I don't often see those types down here in Sydney. I adore them. Pruxxx P.S. Don't you think they just had a way with colours back then? And these are usually beautiful, thick cottons.

I was originally going to comment on the beautiful florals and lovely rose ornament until I scrolled down and saw the orange poppy cups and cake plates - I have these! I bought a sugar bowl with the pattern almost 7 years ago at a Gold Coast op shop, and found four matching cups at a tip shop near Nambucca, NSW, about 2 years ago. Am coveting those cake plates...

Wow! Fantastic finds. Love the all the fabrics and the wedding couple. Also the cups are great.

Oh my goodness, absolutely stunning finds! I love that brooch so much and the fabrics are heavenly.

Every Tuesday I run a little linky post for everyone to showcase their thrifty finds - if you’d like to play along sometime.
