treasure hunting.

mum and i popped out this afternoon for a spot of treasure hunting. had to show her my favourite place and managed to pick up some delights. she themed her finds...vintage australiana & christmas..which meant awesome coasters, placemats, teatowel, and christmas bell. bless. $10 she snagged them for. i spent a liiiitttttle more than that. treasures feature below. happy weekend!

floral teatowel. that background colour makes me so happy.

large and small willow tins. roses are delightful.

candy coloured curtains, perfect.

stack of vintage fabrics. yum!

retro napkin, love those colours.

upholstery fabric.

retro cabinet handles.

owls and bunnies, to be featured in new works.
a set of 6 'love is' glasses. mum and dad used to post the 'love is' paper cuttings to each other as love notes in the 70's. double bless.

Wow! Love it all. Maybe the Willow tins the best. Or maybe the 'Love is...' glasses. I remember those!

I too adore the first shot. That really captured my interest. What insane colours. Once again, why don't they make them like that anymore... Also love your owls and bunnies... Too cute. Pruxxx
