birthday behaviour.


what a day. rain held off till early afternoon which made for ample opshopping time and coast cruising. caught up with a handsome boy for a late lunch at my favourite coast cafe for some sweet talks and treats. lovely. just got home so photos of the delicious finds i picked up today will have to wait for tomorrow...there are some real treats! had lots of fun visiting my old favourites. off for dinner soon and then a birthday cocktail before i meet my girls tomorrow at dandelion & driftwood for some morning tea action...peanut butter whoopies included. happy birthday to the beautiful ladies that share my birthday and i hope your weekend finds you having some successful thrifting and sweet treat indulging. 28, wow...i'm a big girl now. see you tomorrow!



first oppy and the basket is already filling fast. (totally snagged that mountain print too)

the animal welfare league had a treasure trove upstairs. hello pillowcases, barkcloth and aprons!

amazing chicken & pumpkin wrap, mug of latte and a perfect sugar pot.

Happy happy birthday you spring chicken you. What a glorious way to spend your birthday, have to say 28 is a damm good age, enjoy every minute. That boy is indeed suspiciously cute and totally agree on the wallpaper and also those lampshades are lovely. Embrace this year ahead, so full of promise, potential, time and sleep. I can remember those years very fondly. The finds look out of this world, I thought you were supposed to be SAVING? I must get to your next rummage. melx

Happy birthday! Sounds wonderful. I heard from my friend (who works at D&D) that all the people working tomorrow are meant to be dressing up as smurfs... so it will be interesting if they do! Haha. Enjoy!

Those shelves of fabric looks very appealling - could spend ages rummaging through there.
And happy birthday!
