~Op Shop Treasures~


~Another week has sped by so fast...where does the time go.   On the spur of the moment I decided to pop into an op-shop on my way home from work.  I dont go to this one very often as it has become more of a clothing store and less of a treasure hunt lol.  Anyways I looking through what is left of the 70's reject crockery (just not my taste) when I spotted this delightful silver coffee service.  Love silver ware...even enjoy polishing it occassionally.  Couldn't grab it quick enough ( and yes I look around to make sure no one is going to grab it out from under me lol)  Finished looking through the crockery but nothing else caught my eye.  Off to the register I went when I saw a hint of PINK in the cabinet under the register.  Imagine my delight when it turned out to be a powder puff...although no overly vintage (probably Avon) I didnt care it was..... PINK! Now I was grinning like a silly cheshire cat.  Standing at the register happily paying for my treasures when I glanced to my left and in the cheap basket (which never gets a glance cause it is always full of uglies) there to my delight where 4 rose bud egg cups.  By this time I am must be looking like a right fool with this huge grin on my face.  I couldnt get them on the counter quick enough.  They are Made in Japan and cute as...not much good for holding boiled eggs (they slip sideways) but stunning pink and green colours.
My spur of the moment shop was the best ever :)


Happy Pink Saturday
