Viking raids.... and I bought Don home to meet the family,

Don Freedman
 I have been dreaming about these wall hangings, 
I scour etsy and think $300, not that much? 
Never going to get one in Australia....blah blah blah!
Then on my first thrift outing all term to the Waverly Bazaar!
Ta da! all for $15.00!!!!!!!

I thrift to relax, I thrift for silence too, the joy of not talking for hours on end, just looking, looking and the BAM you spot your hearts desire.
I sometimes wonder what an introvert is doing in a teaching job, but then I do enjoy bossing folk about and teenagers are great for that!
 LOL I mean bossing in a good way :)


 Hello Danish Viking, he came home too. 
To guard 'the Don' from further pillaging!


Blue, Brown and Green! 
My interior colour choices at the moment!
How did that happen?


Another Holmegaard carafe to add to my collection, more Viking motifs!


and making some simpler macramé to soothe my busy days!

Hope your well and I look forward to visiting you all over these holidays, I hope you'll excuse my tardiness!
