Autumn Leaves

With all the cold weather and and whinging about being cold (and yes it is just whinging, its not that cold yet), I've still managed to get out to the local Op- Shops and markets over the past couple of weeks. 

These canisters are awesome! And in great autumn colours. And the Pyrex  casserole dish is perfect for making two serves of chocolate self saucing pudding! (Yes, I have already tried it.....waited until the kids went to bed and then quickly made some for us grown ups and scoffed it in two minutes flat!)

I picked up some kids books from the 50's and 60's from a record seller at the markets. They are in great condition but my only gripe is that he stuck awful stickers to the front that have damaged the covers during removal. Oh well, I buy things because I like them, not for resale. On the upside Mr C picked up a Zappa on vinyl that he had been looking for for a while, so I can't be too hard on the guy!

Chuckles is impressed with the one the left that he refers to as "The Party Book"

This week I have been lucky with boys clothes, which is lucky as Chuckles seems a) outgrow everything in five minutes or b) soil whatever he is wearing. Deep breath...this will pass!

I picked up his outfit below for about $7! The pants were in the dress up section of the oppie and I'm sure the woman thought I would be permanently scarring my son by letting him wear them every day. The coat is lovely wool, very warm, dates from pre 70's and only cost me $2. Whilst shopping at the farmers market all the old dears kept telling me how pretty "she" was. And they didn't mean Poppet.

Poppet's coat is thanks to a few awesome friends with great taste that give us all their cast offs! Huzzah for hand me downs!

Toilet stop for chuckles means chance to play in the autumn leaves!
Till next time.
