Peg boards, prongs and op shop withdrawals...

I dreamt about peg boards and prongs this week. Grey metal consumed my thoughts each day until I got home, made a cuppa and checked all those lovely blogs with those gorgeous vintage finds.

Alas there has been no time for rummaging this week and I miss the familiar sights and smells of my local op shops. I miss the anticipation of my mapped out treasure hunt and I miss getting home unpacking and cleaning my loot so I can find the perfect spot for it all.

If it wasn't for all you magpies out there who take the time to share your beautiful finds on Blogland I would truly be in despair! So thank you :-)

But... I still have many pics of past vintage finds to show off so I am not completey void of contributions this week...

I did have time to bake some banana loaves for our lunch this week and I cant wait to devour a piece or two. Have an excellent week and happy hunting xx
