I am still on a clothes shopping ban; the Free Fashion Challenge, but picked up a few non-clothing treasures.
An adorable children's book; Possom Magic by Mem Fox
“Once upon a time, but not very long ago, deep in the Australian bush, there lived two possums. Their names were Hush and Grandma Poss. Grandma Poss made bush magic…”
We stopped by a cafe in Sorrento where a waitress did a double take whilst I was reading Possum Magic to my son, "Oh I remember that book!" she says
As a child raised outside of Australia, this book is not familiar to me, little did I know Possum Magic became and remains the best known picture book in Australia and the best selling picture book ever in this country.
Look at the illustrations in Possum Magic, just wonderful..
I also picked up a McCalls sewing pattern to make 5 children's bags. I have my eye on the dinosaur backpack, and can't wait to try it out.
I scored an 1970's apron pattern, but what is a little special about this find, other than it remains unused and intact, is that it still sits in a typewritten envelope to its recipient with a stamp post dated 01 May 1973. I imagine it would have been a free pattern available from the Herald & Weekly Times back in the day. The lady behind the counter said I was very lucky to find an apron pattern?!
Lastly, I picked up a polka dot fleece baby blanket for craft projects.
