Thrifting

Yesterday I went thrifting with my friend Nicola. It was a beautiful sunny day but I am not sure the temperature ever got to the predicted high of 16 degrees C. There were lots of shivery moments when out of the sun or in freezing second-hand shops. Being a novice to this blogging/take camera with you thing I naturally forgot to take mine so Nicola had to do all the snapping (happily) and a great job she did. Click on her name to see these pics. In Waipawa, south of Hastings, I found this mirror. I think its the beginning of another collection as this is the second one of its type that I have bought - the other one is an oval shape. To make a threesome I would love to get my hands on a heart shaped one. I know they exist because my friend has one that came from her grandmother-in-law.
Also, in Waipawa, but not at the same shop I found this beautiful vintage tin. Inside the lid it says Red Rose Tea - imagine buying your tea in such a gorgeous container.
We had a fun time and then came back to Nicola's to homemade soup and bread made by her very cleverinthekitchen hubby.
