Fleamarket finds




I'm stuck in bed today sweeties, recovering from being a bit unwell.



To pass the time I'm looking through lots of lovely blogs and trying to cope with five indoor winter kids who are niggly and bored.


My finds are really not mine this week but were discovered by my boys on a recent road trip. Mark & Bill travelled up to a little town near Shepparton to visit James who manages a fruit orchard there. Can you imagine all the fantastic op shops they passed along the way?



They picked up some gorgeous sheets,



and this lovely linen Australiana tablecloth.



I think my favourite find was this pretty apron.
Have you found any lovely treasures this week?
I'm off to Sophie's for a peek,
see you soon

Such is the success of the oppie brainwashing in your house! I'm heartily impressed. Now please get well QUICK STICKS! (I am also pleased to hear of bed confinement rather than that soldiering on and making things worse approach)...
