Hi thrillseekers...are you having a happy weekend? Have I shown you this little box/shelf before? I bought it years ago for six dollars at Camberwell Market. It sits in the bathroom at the end of the bath and I just love it.
Talking of loving things I picked up this little sweetie at the Trash & Treasure last week, isn't it cute?
I love the colours and images and the dinky beads. I'm not sure where to put it yet but it will find a good home somewhere in our crazy house.
Now..did I mention I found something super special last week at the Creswick Anglican Church Garage Sale???? Yep, just as we were leaving we walked past a horsetrailer outside the hall and inside was something big & shiny....
..yep, a piano! After telling the old blokes, who were standing around in the frosty morning air having a chat, that it was a funny looking kind of horse (ha ha) I had a closer look. It was hard to see it properly as the horse trailer was narrow but the piano looked beautiful (even sitting on top of some fragrant manure) and in pretty good condition so I asked the million dollar question, 'how much is it?'
The fella who seemed in charge shook his head a couple of times and said questioningly...fifty dollars? I've always wanted a piano and at that price it was a done deal. Excitement! Joy! I only had a handful of gold coins to leave as a deposit and as I handed them over it was all I had to restrain myself from doing a little happy dance! woo hoo! Don't you love a world where you can still buy a piano for a few bob, out of a horse trailer from a nice bloke on a cold old winters day?
Rosie couldn't work out why we couldn't take our new baby home straight away but lovely Mr Ainley kindly dropped it off at our house for an extra fifty a couple of days later.
I love the sound it makes, the daffodils , the gold, the history that I will never know, oh what a gorgeous creature. What a special new part of our family. Ballet & dance concerts at home have a new musical flavour, the kids are loving it and Mark & I are too. And it makes a handy spot for special friends, like Teddy.
Hope you found some extra special treasures this week too,
see you over at Sophies xo
