Favourtie Finds of the Year

Sophie at Her Library Adventures posted a favourite finds of the year.  So here are mine.


I found this lovely crochet blanket at the Impact Thrift Shop.




This was out for the trash man, a Creuset dutch oven, which I cleaned up. I couldn't believe that someone would throw this away. It's so nice and I've always wanted one.






On Ebay, when I wasn't even looking I found the exact manual for my 1950 Husqvarna. Not such a common sewing machine over here in the States. I bought the sewing machine in a yard sale a couple of years before.

  5. oh my goodness - the le creuset is such an amazing find! We have the set of saucepans and a couple of the dutch ovens, from when we took the ferry over from the UK to France years ago. Now we are in NZ, it is soooo expensive here!
    Love it! (and the colour)
