stormy weather...

it rained, it poured, it flooded...
you can read about it here
we were ok, but out in the 'burbs- stoke and richmond ,  it got really bad .
some families had rivers come right through their homes!
so sad.

rain clouds from my porch

come monday , boy , did we get cabin fever and need silly yet necessary grocery supplies, like nappies and milk.
i don't drive so i rugged up the rugrat prince and we went to the supermarket, which is luckily just down the road.
we have to pass 3 op shops on the way to the supermarche... and what sort of thrifter sister would i be if i didn't pop in! ;)

here's what i scored on a rainy day...

 dean board book  .50c - i have quite a few of these now , such beautiful pictures
alice in wonderland book .50c - i collect alice books, will have to link in to op shop mama's collection posts soon! 

 olga berg hot pink mesh purse -with tags on $1 - how could i resist!
funnily enough the pink scalloped bag i got last week is also of the olga berg brand - i've heard of it til now !

 cute 80's bag $1

super cute napkins from ireland - $1
the colours are quite washed out here but these are really bright!

not bad for 4 bucks!!

so glad the sun has come out today!
