On Sunday I went to an antique auction for Hospice in Hawera. Wow there was some beautiful antiques there and of course I couldn't help myself ! I went there with the intention at looking at an christening gown, but while I was there this beautiful old cot from the hospital came up, couldn't hold back the hand and ended up buying it, along with a pink dish and some gloves. The problem was I was in the car and although there were many helpful men trying to put this in my car it didn't fit. So today I made a mad dash to Hawera and picked it up! It has been painted with lead paint so I think I will send it away to be sandblasted and then I will repaint. I am so happy with my buys!
Tomorrow is my monthly stitching group meeting, but we have decided to do an ' Op shop hop '.
I can't wait it will be so much fun! I will up date you with our buys tomorrow.
