It's been a few weeks since I've taken pictures of our recent acquisitions and received gifts. Garage sales/yard sales are still providing gems, along with large skips and early evening bin raids. This is the last weekend we have until I'm on leave and the renovations start. I'm actually getting a bit concerned that I'm not going to be able to get everything finished in time before the date that has been set for us to vacate our rental property. Oh Joy. At least it might make for some interesting 'working against the clock' renovations. Today I'm going to buy all the paint and gear and maybe some second hand overalls!


Thanks Shaz

I've given this a lick of primer but it needs a top coat, but it still looks better than it did in the maxi skip!

I want a phone just like that one. $2!! I love the kitchen cannisters - $50 is a bargain price these days.

I agree with Ballarat Vintage Style - they look a real treat. Time tickin away now Ro and Kim....then the joy, sorry, pain begins! This will be mor rewarding (for me as an observer) than those un-reality TV shows! Vin
