Opp shop finds and more!

Ok so I thought I'd show you all our bed, decided to mix it up abit, weeeell the image doesn't do it any good, you see I believe it doesn't matter, what is really in fashion I just mix and match old with the new, highlight a few colours and make sure the colour tone flows with each other. Actually the green quilt and shames to match, I just receive from a lovely friend Lisa on the weekend, they came from her mother that didn't want them anymore. so thank-you to both of you, I just love them.
My vintage trinket box above, trinkets I have been collecting, I do use them for embellishments in my designs, and there are some that I just wont let go yet, They are so beautiful to look at all in one box.......don't you think?
Now here are my favorite vintage fine at the Opp shop, last year.... you know, I would love to go back and be moving out of home for the first time again.....with the knowledge I know now, and what you can find at op shops, Oh just beautiful, and at low cost...... above cost me under $25.00, two vintage Doyle's, one stationary pack, a vintage strawberry table cloth, and a beautiful bed spread. Oh and if you scroll back up to my bedroom image, now the same day I bought these vintage items I also bought my bed and that was $250.00, what a bargain.
Ok lady's here is my first creation, pink princess crown shell, embellished with pink rub-on crown, pink glitter around the edges, contrasting ribbon and pearl..... How cute!

Ok lady must go for now hubby needs the PC see you soon!
