My first blogger meet up


Yesterday I was lucky enough to be invited to my first blogger meet up organised by Erica at Recycled Fashion, with a group of thrifty fashion bloggers in Melbourne. We visited 4 fantastic op shops before stopping for lunch and a lovely cool drink. I had a great time, and couldn't help but visit a couple more op shops on my journey before heading back to Bendigo.

There were some very glamorous op shoppers among us.





Ugly or not?


Here we all are stopping for a hard earned rest.


I picked up a great granny rug for $5, which Mr Crafty is enjoying below.


I also got this vintage house dress. I love the colour and it is ripe for refashioning and in need of a little TLC.

  1. Gotta love a good Granny rug! I think of the work that's gone into them and feel a bit guilty I use them as dogs blankets.
