ok. time to get your eyes ready for some serious eye candy. i will say only two things (yeah, right).....1. i didn't pay more than $45 for everything you see below (so saving $$$ is still on track!) 2. a few of these lovely treasures will be available at the december rummage, hooray! i plan on making up a few gift packs for christmas (of the vintage variety) inspired by the gorgeous kellie. there will be some picnic love, some afternoon tea baskets and some lovely linens to decorate your home with. i've had an equally beautiful breezy brisbane saturday...brunching with some favourites at D&D and like always, they didn't disappoint. driftwood blend, peanut butter whoopies, sandwiches and sunshine made for a delightful morning. the whole sweet deal was captured by kate so photos will be showcased later in the week. baby snuggles were icing on the cake. last night i cocktailed my way after dinner to gertie's, laughing so much and and falling more in love with my nearest and dearest (had nothing to do with the alcohol consumed.) so now i've shared a couple of things i'm off to do some chores and admire my growing mountain art collection. the dishes can wait. i'll be back tomorrow with a special post but i hope this finds you enjoying your weekend and basking in this beautiful sunshine. hello spring!
'rose glow' by olga west, 1981.
3 divine aprons. keeping the one on the left, the other 2 will make it to rummage.
the most beautiful large round floral tablecloth i've ever unearthed. perfect.
a large mountain print from an original watercolour that was dated 1878. it's moody, delicious and now the centrepiece of my mountain arrangement.
i'm in love.
who can resist johnson crockery..and for 30c for two....i'm there.
a little bit of kitsch goes a long way.
some melmac loving. they will be part of a picnic set for rummage.
i love a good oil painting and this book is full of retro forest works!
remember this guy? well these 5 cuties will join him in a 'woodland teaparty' collective, available at december rummage.
a collection of retro greeting cards...watch out for the postie!
i found all kinds of fantastic pillowcases!
3 spring floral pillowcases, all bright and beautiful and some mustard and grey square linen for the boys.
i found a gorgeous (and large) teacup watercolour print and fell in love. i'll be reframing it in a smaller, cuter frame. finding cloud fabric is always a treat!
a perfect rectangular mustard tablecloth and matching dulux to paint frames, canvases etc with. it's all about the mustard!
a lovely orange check embroidered tablecloth and leafy barkcloth. yum!
ummm, yes...this is indeed an ET single doona cover in mint condition. (sold)
i'm a sucker for 'mother' plates. love you mum!
couldn't resist showing you a gorgeous birthday present (a kylie johnson cloud brooch) and a sneak peek of the colour palette that is adorning my latest canvases and cross stitches!
