I love a visit to our local Lifeline workshop. The various second hand wares are spread throughout a few sheds and the people who run it are real characters. Nothing is priced, it is simply a matter of pointing out whatever has caught your eye and you are given a price on the spot.
I recently picked up this pretty little tin tray, the cheerful colours caught my eye and I thought it would look at home on my outdoor table.
These solid Fowler’s preserving jars were also bought from Lifeline for next to nothing. I have put some little beeswax candles in them and I just love the way they create a pretty glow.
Another recent buywas from Ebay. It is an addition to my slowly growing collection of old toy caravans. This little van wasn't necessarily a bargain but I couldn't resist the well loved appearance and the 60’s styling.
Lastly, I picked up this rather rough but interesting collection from a paddock on our property after recent rain. The old cow bell and enamel cup and candle holder must have been buried in the dirt for many years. They are a reminder of the past and much tougher, yet simpler times living in rural Australia.
