Enough. (flea market finds)
I'm a bit early for Flea Market Finds this week (or really late, perhaps), but needed to write this post before I changed my mind.
You see, I've decided to take a break from op-shopping for a while - well, at least 2 weeks.
Yesterday, I had a little bit of child-free time, and thought it would be fun to go treasure hunting... and it was.
I found some great things - this suitcase at a tip shop (I didn't even know we had a tip shop nearby until a week or so ago!), four (yes, FOUR) gorgeous aprons, a bit of orange tupperware and a "matching" teatowel, and a couple of nice sheets.
I also found, and bought, some other things that I didn't love or need, and that I put back in the car and redonated straight away...
I realised that, while my love of op-shopping has many benefits, it has started to take more of my time, and more of my thoughts (and more space in our home), than I'd like.
So a break it is. It will be hard to maintain - especially with a daughter who actively encourages my habit - but necessary.
Wish me luck!
PS: I'll be joining in with Sophie's Flea Market Finds this Sunday.
