sister knows best.




feeling a little under the weather this morning meant no work for me today. i decided to get some fresh air and take up my sister's offer to accompany her on a shopping trip. we may have ended up at a few opshops on the way home, but seriously, that has been the best medicine today. heating up soup when i got home has even proven to be a challenge, turning into a bubbling black mess. not meant to be. however, the following treats found today, were. the nally jam/sugar/honey pots are an ebay delight. hope your thursday is treating you well. i'm off to the bristyle markets tomorrow night to meet the lovely moose&bird and pick myself up a beautiful brooch that will be a little treat for a soon to be bride. hope the rain holds off a little..i wanna ride my bike into work too. keep your fingers crossed for me and the market queens.





lovely tablecloths, apron, napkins, pillowcases and a double duvet cover.




my 'nally' ebay treat. aren't they gorgeous? that colour is my favourite.


the lids are divine and this tablecloth had to be mine. $1? i think so.





i'm such a fiend for tapestries, but they have to spark some kind of memory in me in order for me to splash out the money. this montmartre scene is gorgeous and reminds me of my trip to paris 5 or so years ago. the flower shops and street painters are a beautiful memory to me. will be going in my studio to inspire me.




the detail is lovely. artist at work, love it!




a jar of buckles for 95c and a gorgeous set of teacup fabric items. may be hitting my k&n facebook shop!
