red and white

Lately from the op-shop – red and white things:

This white hand-potted vase (on the right) which I immediately filled with whilte gladioli from my garden. Hard to see here, but the vase has a delicious milky glaze.

This sweet 1980s metal geranium tray.

And a summer skirt with GIANT poppies on it.

(I hope you find these op-shopping posts interesting. I know I always like seeing what other people have found at op-shops.)

  1. I find them interesting! Haven’t been opshopping in flipping ages but I love it…need to allocate some time for a good cruise round. Those gladioli are pretty, they were always one of my favourites as a child (more exciting than the other flowers) along with, incidentally, poppies (the colour was so beautiful, the Wizard of Oz connotations, and they have lovely soft petals.)

  2. Thank you! One great thing about living in the Manawatu is that the opshops are AWESOME! :)

    This is the first time I’ve grown gladioli, I found out my grandmother used to grow them for extra money in the 1950s and it made me want to grow some in her honour.

  3. I love your op shopping posts!!

  4. Sweet! I’ll keep doin ‘em, then! :)
