Thrift Thriller

So I went op-shopping the other week. I was looking in the kitchen area and walked past a set of coasters. Just plain old bamboo coasters, I thought.But as I walked back along the shelf and saw them again, I thought what a sweet little carry basket they were in. So I had a peak at what the coasters themselves looked like. Then I checked the price ($2.00) and quickly snapped them up!Real pressed butterfly wings and ferns set against tissue paper, each butterfly has a little paper cut-out body!! They're all Australian Natives too!I am just thrilled to bits with them!

My mom had a set of these when I was younger...they're probably buried in her 'junk' room somewhere! Gotta love thrifting! Nice find!
