Not pennies!

I blogged about my favourite children’s book a couple of times here and on a lazy Monday morning whim, I checked to see if any copies were selling on eBay. My copy of House by Mouse by George Mendoza had the first 2 pages autographed by a 3-year-old at some stage of its life so I look now and then to see if I can score one in better condition.

There is one copy for sale! But at US$1,128.98 (buy it now) it was an eye-popper.

I think I’ll treasure my AUD$1.99 find a little bit more from today!

Have you found any treasure lately?

    Wow!! That is a fortune!! The thing is, when you find out something you own and cherish is worth such a lot, it is still never enough to make you want to sell it (usually!) :)


The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
