Living Creatively Comp - Op Shop Ship Shape - I won! I won!


I am so excited I am all funny... you know how you get when you can't believe something really awesome & you can hardly think straight & you go a bit wobbly...?! Well that's me right now... I entered Living Creatively's Competitively Creative Competition for last month (with only a few days to spare mind you!); the theme was "Op Shop Ship Shape" & you had to share your reconned opshop goodies... As you can imagine I was thrilled to be able to enter, if ever there were a competition made for me! I could nae decide which of my furniture projects to submit because I love them all so I sent in my Writing Desk, Rocker & Buffet....

...and they choose the Buffet as the Winner!!

That's $100 that will be going straight back to the Oppy, thank you very much...!

Oh I am happy dancing all over the place!

Welcome any visitors from Living Creatively! Thank you so much to the folks over there who picked little old me... I am so glad that my passion for opshopping, thrifting, reusing... whatever you want to call it... shows through & even better, you liked it! I can only hope I might have been able to inspire one or two other crafty types to look at their oppy's unloved furniture in a new light!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to faint.


  1. Congrats Vic! You totally deserved it!
