more milk glass & time for a clean out!

it's Monday morning, and we're finally all on school holidays! such a great feeling.
just had a nice coffee with Mike, still in my PJ's and white lounge covers soaking in the washing machine. what a great way to start the week!

above you can see my ever growing milk glass collection (and a few other pieces)
Steph and I visited 2 Sunday markets early yesterday morning.
i didn't come home with a lot, but very happy with what i did find.
here are the newest additions to my collection.

some of you have asked what markets we visit. it's located at the Ferny Hills train station car park on Brisbane's Northside. we also drove over the the Southside of Brisbane yesterday and went to the Chandler Markets. it's too far away to visit every Sunday, but we will try to go once a month at least! it's a fabulous market, with loads of vintage treasures, fresh food and craft.
i found a few more items of clothing to add to my already completely stuffed full wardrobe, as well as this cute heart necklace. i love that it is all tarnished. can you read what's on it?
He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not,
so sweet!
now that the 1st term of school is done and dusted, the girls rooms are looking a little worse for wear....
hmmmm. time for a BIG clean out me thinks!!
here's a basket of stuff just from my bedroom!
we are planning to do our own market stall this holidays, and the girls are excited, as whatever they sell is money in their pockets!
a warm welcome to all my newest followers. so glad to have you here.
i'm getting so close to my next goal of 100 followers! remembering that i was aiming for 50 by the end of the year!!
i'm thinking about what my next giveaway will be when i reach that magic number..
i'm linked up with A Stroll Thru Life,

have a lovely week everyone!
