flea market finds

Alas, the thrifting Gods did not shine on me this week (again!) although I have been pretty pre-occupied with my son's upcoming 4th birthday, so that may have something to do with it.  So whilst I sat down after a quiet weekend with my glass of red, seeing what thrifting finds you all have acquired, I stumbled across bountifully and admiring her newly purchased boy-robe and the mention of taking her hubby along with her on her op shopping adventures.

You see, this got me thinking about whether my hubby would come op-shopping with me!  My initial reaction was NO!  However, sheepishly I have to admit that two of my most favoured items have been thrifted by my dearest Husband.  So to pay homage to his efforts and as an excuse to join in this week I present to you two of his greatest finds....

One - a small little wooden jewellery box with mother of pearl detail he bought me at a second hand shop no longer running for $9

and this fab clock that he found on the side of the road and thought I might like (ahhh...i love it! was my response).

To join in on your flea market treasures check out Sophie's delightful blog!
