Thrift shop finds

While the boys have had school holidays I didnt get to spend as much time browsing through the op shops as I would normally do. The boys really dont like to go and whilst I could leave them at home and just go by myself I was in holiday mode myself and actually didnt go out alot unless we had things planned.
Here are a few things that I did find;

Fab Tasmanian wooden bowl, perfect to sit on the bookshelf and hold all our keys.

Not sure what this may of been for originally, but so cute and Im certain will be perfect for a scrapbook page someday soon.

I love to do jigsaws and this one was marked complete so I just had to have it (more on this in a later post).

A few books that Ive been after or just caught my eye and I plan on working my way through.

Music in the night by V.C. Andrews - I have pretty much her whole collection.
The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank - read this before but didnt have a copy and want to read it again.
The shelter of stone by Jean M. Auel - have read 4 of her books and this is another in the series that I didnt know about.
(if anyone sees any of her books in their op shop travels I would love if you picked them up for me, more than willing to pay postage to get them to me)
Jessica by Bryce Courtney - enjoyed reading some of his books last christmas.
Marley & Me by John Grogan - movie was sweet thought the book would be a good read.
The Last Juror by John Grisham - have quite a few of his books and enjoy his style.

I have quite a few books to work my way though there but I love to read so am planning on reading a little every day if I can.

Cheers Lis :)
