Rummaging through the bottom shelf of sheets at the op shop on Saturday I unearthed a load of lovely linen from beneath the daggy doonas. Cloth napkins in a rainbow of colours to brighten our winter table (which proved very popular with the sticky fingered little house guests we had over the solstice weekend). Embroidered placemats - an entire set unused except for the top of the pile which was flecked with cat hair. I imagine they sat on the top of somebody's sideboard for many years and were the preferred resting spot for the cat of the house. Another embroidered floral placemat and a pretty apron completed my haul. I brought the lot home for $5.
