I know Nick's not the only perceptive one out there, but I do especially love her comment on the grandiose, and let's face it, totally ridiculous statement I made on Friday ie: I no longer op-shop.
Here's what she wrote
Ah, so you no longer op-shop eh...eh? I dare you to say that to me in six months time with total truth, no sidelong glances...no shuffling of the feet, no changing the subject.
Ummmm, shuffle-shuffle, cough-cough...try two days Nick!
I have to admit, I have had a slight relapse. It's time to 'fess up...yesterday I succumbed and bought this
In my defence I just want to say that it's not always easy when you volunteer in an op-shop to resist temptation. And I have done a marvelous job (until yesterday) I still haven't checked out the three oppies just minutes from my new job, and I've almost worked there for a month!
So on that note, I think I'd better temper what I said on Friday with this disclaimer:
I will continue to op-shop when the mood strikes me, but I will be extremely selective about what I decide to buy.
I think that just about covers it...you've seen the garage sale pics...I NEVER want to go there again!
I thought it would be fun to end with a tea towel
Have you missed them?
I haven't linked to Sophie's for ages, here goes...
