Yesterday we took the family to Scienceworks. I must say it was the best place you can take an avid thrifter as well as an autistic family. Master S and Master J (even Miss G for that matter) loved the interactive play based activities. This was a wonderful day out for our family. The boys appeared calm amidst large groups of people. The exhibitions are extremely stimulating for the mathematical mind and those who like to stim (repetitive movements often associated with autism spectrum disorders).
Thankfully my highlight was experiencing a positive day out with my autistic boys and neuro-typical daughter at the same venue. My creative non-mathematical mind was delighted to find the 'home' exhibition had wonderful showcase of vintage items - I had my fix of more thrifting education. I even spotted this little calender my mum has always had.
So many vintage toys.
Here is what I found this week. Twelve lovely 120 year old cedar house corbels from a little old house in Walkerville.
After our trip to Scienceworks. We checked out the op-shops in Williamstown. My only score for the day was this gorgeous art-deco mirror. I am tempted to keep it. I love these mirrors. The packing boxes I picked up last week, they will make someone lovely shelves.
This thrifted vintage fabric will be used for some of the dolly's I will be making for some Queensland flood affected people.
I hope to hear all about your finds too, much love xo
