I could die happy right now!

This may seem a little sad but I just HAVE to share this with SOMEONE ...  I am home alone at the moment and have tried calling my sister (she's not home).... my mum (she's probably out in the garden and can't hear the phone)... I literally HAVE to share this before I pop so I am going to share this with you...
I went to my local thrift shop to drop off some unwanted bits and bobs and went in for a look around and you will NEVER GUESS WHAT I FOUND!!! ....

I did embarrass myself by letting out a little squeal of delight when I saw this vintage Dymo machine!! It was only $5!! What is even MORE exciting is that I went to this same shop about 3 months ago and found these.......

Yep - you are not seeing things... 10 rolls of Dymo tape...never had a Dymo machine at the time but just knew that one would turn up somewhere... don't you just LOVE when that happens!! I am totally thrilled and could die happy right now!! Since I am so excited I will share the rest of the treasures I picked up too......

The Dymo machine for $5, a ratty canvas for $1 (looks terrible now but wait and see what I am going to do with it...!), a bag of chalk for my little ones $1, just under 4m of calico fabric for $2.50 (I see flowers!), a pair of dumbells $2 (don't laugh I really am going to use them one day!), an enamel bowl and cup $2.50 (I can NEVER go past vintage enamel - just love it!), and those GORGEOUS OshKosh  silver shoes for my daughter $5.50 (she will be SO excited about those pretties!!) So all of this for under $20 - are you kidding me!! The excitement here is truly PRICELESS!
Thanks for listening - I won't have to pop now!
