I am glad I took my little vowers out this morning not only was Master V helpful but he gave his opinion on today's find. I dropped into Lifeline Oxenford and whilst meandering around and rummaged through different racks and shelves, I kept popping the hat on to make sure it's really what I wanted. All I could hear each time was Master V's voice giggling saying "get hat mummy, get hat". So here it is, brown hat with beige trim it's one of those lusciously flippy floppy hats which will give plenty of protection from the sun when mucking about with my little vowers.
I'm not entirely convinced by the band and fabric flower but for $4 for the hat and the abundance of craft supplies I have I am going to set about turning this lusciously flippy floppy hat into the totally perfect number I'm wanting. Did anyone else pick up finds this week? Please share!
Hmmmm so what should we be on the search for this coming week, what about some knitted goodness? Go on get to it?

Would you believe I picked it up still with it tags on? It's a Padmar Patchwork Leather Bag. The strap has the slightest bit of wear presumably from it travelling around and being rummaged on over time. But you know what I don't care, I'm in love with it, it's totally me. Even though I have little use for a bag this size, with Little V being 5 months old and a nappy bag being how we roll at the moment, I will get use out of it soon.
I scored my little beauty at a car boot sale over the weekend for $2.
Now if you would like to join me on Funky Finds Friday, send me an email with a link to your blog or post a comment below directing me to your find, I will then create a live link list in a post for us all to check out. I will be looking at streamlining this system once I find a Linky Gadget that isn't riddled with bugs....agrrrrr. So until then just email the link or post comment and I will share the blog love around.
So what are we on the hunt for next Friday? I'm needing some head wear I think. I would like a really cool hat that not only looks super cool but gives some protection for when I am out and about with the kids. So failing a hat I will just leave it open to some sort of cool head wear.....perhaps head scarf. Anyways I better fly and get to hunting for next Friday's Find, come join me and show me what you found for your noggin.

If you're looking for something to do next weekend start planning now. The South Coast Restoration Society Inc are having their 30th Annual Vintage and Craft Rally.
Where: Heritage Park, 193 Rifle Range Road, Pimpama QLD (take exit 49 off the M1)
Time: 9am - 3pm
When: Saturday and Sunday 23rd & 24th July 2011
If you remember my review from the other week The Living Rivers Op Shop will have a stall/display there. There will be something for everyone at the Rally everything from classic and vintage cars and vintage big boy toys to look at like steam and diesel engines. But there will also be arts and crafts and handcraft demos, antiques, fun things for the kids to do and see and much, much more.
I hope to get along myself it will be a first, I always like to have a look at all things vintage, as inspiration for future crafty projects come from everywhere. If you're heading along let me know, you might find me watching a handcraft demo trying to pick up some new tricks.
Parking is free admission to the rally is $10 per adult and children under 13 are FREE.

Lifeline - Runaway Bay
385 Oxley Drv, Runaway Bay QLD 4216
Phone: 07 55005701
What's up stairs I hear you say! Well it's a wonderful constant mix of vintage finds, old school dress ups for the kiddies, all sorts of linens as well as the chance of scoring a retro print to craft or sew into something fantastic. Finally if you're trying to clothe your vintage man there is massive array of vintage and retro shirts and printed t-shirts. A definite to check out even if only to marvel at the racks upstairs if you can't find something to take home with you in your size. Good luck, and please pop back and share your finds with us if you day pay the store a visit.
