yesterday we did some opping with dougs parents - i have managed to get his dad addicted over the years he has known me and i am so proud... we were hitting up the local gsi and doug found this amazing babushka doll, genuine and all - still with the russian tag on the bottom!! what a find. i was so excited it wasn't even funny... so we snapped it up - and the best bit? they only wanted $5 for it! :) thank you! i would go as far as to say that this was my op-shop find of the year, which is a pretty big call considering that there's only a few days left!
we also went to the shops to buy some things for dinner and i came across this store at innaloo shopping centre that had all their christmas things for half price!! i am a sucker for beautiful christmas decorations, mainly of the nativity description and nearly died when i saw these ones. we snapped up this jim shore one above, the willow tree one below (not the background though - totally getting dad to knock one of those together for me, i am sure he'll be
furious thrilled!) he made the one for the smaller set i have and it is beautiful, so i am sure we can get another out of him...
we also got these adorable koalas as a nativity! we cracked up when we saw them and had to have them. what a day full of bargains. just the way i like it.
