Council Clean-up paydirt

For my area i totally hit the motherload in our council clean-up!! It's nothing like the crazy booty found by a certain lovely lady, but I was pretty stoked with it!!

There aren't really a lot of old ladies in our complex, but maybe someone was cleaning out their mothers or grandmothers place or something. But what I do know, is that they discarded some VERY cool vintage fabric!! YIIPPEEE!!! ( I also salvaged a belt and daisy fridge magnets)

The blue flower one is a a heavyweight satin like fabric that will make a perfect summer frock!

ps - does anyone else LOVE the word frock like I do???

I love rocking a frock, absolutely. Love that word, used to hate it when my mum said it though, thankfully I am no longer a teenager. Those fabrics are ACE!
