So here we go....

My first post. Welcome to my new page. I run Crafternoon Tea in Kingsland Auckland. Home to the best craft people in Auckland. My business name is Sweet Matilda where I upcycle womans cothing and homewear. I LOVE my jobs and can't wait to run my market each month or sit behind my sewing machine. So my Op shopping. I'm lucky in the fact that my husband also enjoys this activity.

  I get such a buzz finding great treasures. Just the other day I got myself a 50 cent pair of jeans which fit like a glove. I would like to share with you all my shopping tips. Outfit idea's and what to look for. At the moment I love the colour Coral. I picked up a $5 top in this lovely colour from Cotton On and it's going to look amazing with my new jeans. I get so many idea's from my favourite shows on TV. I love Offspring and just love the way Nina dresses. So as I'm about Op shopping I think about how amazing she looks. Scarfs!!!! (my one must have) a few (yes you can wear more than one) necklaces and layers are her key looks. I just love her Boho look. So onward and upward. Bringing unwanted items back to life. A stitch here a wash and iron there. Away we go. Saving the world one Op shop at a time.

I have been know to wear two scarfs at once! Call me crazy but why not. 

Check this little darling out. $2 and the colour is amazing. It might one day serve it's purpose and I will get breakfast in bed. (I live in hope)

My new passion is Crochet. Mum taught me years ago but her living in another town hasn't helped with my learning skills. So I took up a class with my darling friend Natalie from Poppy & Bee. 
Safe to say I crochet anything I can get my hands on now. 

My love for Agee Jars is growing everyday. I have a number around my house. They are perfect for anything really. Flowers, cotton, knitting needles (even thought I don't knit at present) the list goes on and on. The lamp in this picture was brought a few years ago. While on holiday I gave it a lick of paint and wrapped it up for my hubby. What a great find at $2.

I hope you will enjoy my joy of op shopping with me.
