WOYWW - Booty Time!

...Aha...I said I would be back...and yep, here I am :O)) Mrs Dunnit has her weekly WOYWW and I a little piccie of something that I am rather chuffed with...another Charity shop find...so these are on my desk today...hopefully waiting to be altered in the not too distant future...*please note, AlfieCat is a right little noseybonce and has to sniff everything that comes into the house..hence, his furry face has crept into this piccie LOL* I love the photoframe...I can see different kinds of art sitting in there...that cost £2.50 and the little hanging sign....oooooh, I see a Wendy Vecchi stylee alteration coming on with that one...this one was £1.20 and...bargain of bargains...a bag of wooden tiles that were a quid! 31 of them in total.... Result huh?




Am off to get inky, painty, sticky, crackley, messy ... and... to have fun! :O)) Do pop over and pay Julia a visit....it is such fun noseying at other peeps' workspaces

Oooo yes, lovely bargains for altering there! Which reminds me, I've got a mirror I bought in a charity shop somewhere ....

Ohhh I love Charity shop bargains. Your Alfie looks so like my Jess. Even the white on his nose!!! Must have been separated at birth LOL (Jess is a very nosey furry purry too!!) HAzelxo

Lucky you. They quite often have great buys. I've got a couple of little metal vases to alter at some point.
Can't wait to see what you do with yours.

Lucky you - all those wooden tiles too - you do have some nice charity shops near you. Can't wait to see what you do with all your goodies.

nice stash. nothing but junk in the thrift stores around here. guess i just don't get there often enough and the good stuff is all gone. love the work you have been doing lately, especially bingo wings. the story makes it even better. can't wait to see what you do with all the goodies.

Fabulous bargains Hels & I just can't wait to see what you make with them!! Charity shops are briliant for these kind things :-)
Alfie cat looking as cute as ever & my doggy is the same Hels, he sniffs out everything!! xxx

good finds - never thought of going to charity shops for things to alter - but a great idea.

I believe that crafting and cats go together!

ROFL Anonymous...is actually ... Grim!!! And yes, he does look like a real cat...sometimes he even miaows like a real one too :O)
Another hint for finding junk to alter....is a popular online auction site...oh and Car Boot sales...they are lush cos peeps don't want to take the stuff home with them :O))

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh great finds. I'd have walked past them of course, thinking how someone else (you) could do great things with them....am now gonna scroll up, because I' late visiting and I think your Thursday post is this stuff 'done over'. For heavens sake gal, did you sleep?!
