Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Opportunity shop for my winter wardrobe.

I visited Savers this afternoon, and spend about A$60. Not much is it, for four sweaters and three pairs of pants!



Oh - nearly forgot. A new bag too. Lots of pockets!



Oh, I found these tins, too. I wasn't going to even look at tins, as I've just sold some at the community market last Sunday. But these two...well Puffing Bill steam train is a Melbourne icon, and I'm sure I'll find a use for that tin. The other one doesn't photograph well, as it has a special 'crazed look' surface, but it is a lovely old-time Christmas design. Again, it will be put to good use!

Good buying, Gina! And you do know how to get those pesky stickers off, don't you? Good ole eucalyptus oil will do it.

Oh yes Val, eucalyptus oil always has a place in our house, for a number of uses, including getting stickers off things!

That's a pretty good haul, Gina. I love op-shopping. There's a good one in Mansfield, that I always visit when we head out that way.
Take care, Meow
