fabulous peacock

Today's op shopping was a real success.

Look at this gorgeous peacock plate from Japan.  

 This little travel iron made its way into my bag.

                                          At only $4 it was a real bargain.  Will be good for ironing those little bits of lace etc.

As well as these goodies I managed to find a small electric beater for $5.00: the one I currently use was a wedding present many years ago.

There were other things that came home with me but I haven't photographed them as yet.

 Finally I couldn't resist a small collage of the colours and textures of Autumn.  It has been especially wet and we have many different kinds of fungi and toadstools in various parts of the garden.  The one in the centre picture is on a tree stump just outside our back door.

The fungi looks amazing, I am sure you will be getting inspired to stitch with pics like that.
