A Gay Time at the Oppy

some vintage bling, to fill up the tree.
McCalls Golden Do-It-Book.
Lots of stuff to make, including some gaily decorated boxes.
Has there ever been a word that has meant so many different things?
Each generation seems to take have a different take on it.
Does the dress-up dolly look demonic to you?
In the book it says she's a 'Perky Dress-up Dolly', I've seen Perkier!
I also found some fabric at the Oppy, but the battery went on the camera,
so more of that later.

I may scan the picture of the 'perky dolly' just so you can see the full effect, then I might use it as my banner!

man! Perky dress-up dolly clearly has some issues! Glad you like the Broadhurst book ... I think I would have really liked to have a cocktail with that woman! Nice oppy scores here!

You have such great Op-Shops near you! The ones I go to are always full of crap. :(

oh I love that Mccall book - what a magnificent find.
I made some of those hanging baubles - they were great fun. I blogged them of course.

Can't wait 'till they bring out the old chirstmas decorations in my opshop - I particularly love those funny chunky foam christmas stocking ones.
