this is... my best op shop find


This is my best and also my latest op shop find. It's a bangle that is covered with embroidery thread in three of my favourite colours. I'm a bit of an accessories junkie and usually buy something in the hope that I can find other bits to match, but this time around I was set to go. As you can tell my current colour of the moment is turquoise!

A big thanks to Angela for all the fun of "This is" and the very talented Lino Forest for this great theme. 

Stay tuned for next week's "This is" as yours truly is lucky enough to be picking the theme. I've had a long hard think about it and I've decided on "This is... my most treasured childhood possession". So it could be anything (object, memory, person) that you have held near and dear as you were growing up. Look forward to taking a peek at them all next week.

Isn't it great when you find it in your favourite colour? Some days my thrifting happens in colour themes. I'm pretty keen on accessories too.

ooooo, I LOVE that colour. It was good fun looking at this photo. First I noticed the great bangle, then the gorgeous shoes, and THEn that amazing thumb ring. All very cool!

That's a great topic for next week too. Hmmm, I'll have to dig around and see what I still have.
