happy chappy.


apparently wrapping 100's (seriously) of pieces of vintage crockery ready for the move didn't deter me from picking up a few extra pieces to add to my collection this week. a road trip to visit the beautiful libby & harper meant a visit to a local country lifeline was mandatory. i was rewarded with several johnson finds and some beautiful floral plates. dropping stuff off at the opshop can be equally as dangerous as seen below. a teacup i have been searching for, for about 5 years turned up on friday and then it's beautiful pastel pink and green teacup sisters made themselves obvious to me today. thank you thrifting gods. i will pull my head in from now on because i DO need to direct my efforts into finding a new home and i DO need to buy and save for my trip to london in june. couldn't resist linking up with sophie tonight. have a great week my floral loving friends.



floral heaven.

a variety of treats.

the country oppy delivered.

soooo pretty!

and some johnson love.

Be still my beating heart, those floral cups! Swooning going on over here. Did you recognize your old vintage sheet on miss Liongirl's bed? The one positive of bedwetting toddlers is that you get to change your florals around frequently! melx

Bungalowgirl said...

Oh yes and that floral tapestry totally reminded me of you too!

Ooo love the blue johnson plate. Haven't come across that one. Oh how tedious is packing. I fear the day we have to move again with all the crockery I've collected in the past 12mths! All the best lovely.

Those florals are gorgeous! So bright and pretty. I've never seen crockery like that before in an oppy. Good luck with the house hunt and saving goals x

Hi my lovely lady! Op-shop finds making me tres jealous as I know it will be a long LONG time between oppy visits for me now. I still have something to send to you and your sister. I don't think the email address on your blog profile is working?? I hope you have so much fun unpacking your gear into your new room. Hope you are feeling amazing. Much love. Bec x
