last week started well with my monthly monday off and picking up one of my favourite bits of furniture to date. the opshopping gods rewarded me with the treats you see below. saturday arrived and it was house hunting with guns blazing. finding a house is like a relationship, you must first fall in love and see yourself being with it for a while. for me though, it's all about the smaller touches (1930's floral carpet, pink bathroom and pale green walls.) let's just say i've applied for one and i'm in love. I have all fingers and toes crossed and should hear back as early as tomorrow afternoon. on a huge high i indulged in ciders and scrumptious food. i was in THE best mood. woke sunday morning feeling sick as a dog (and not due to the ONE cider!) i have no idea how to be sick, i'm a lucky girl who usually avoids all that bother. feeling much better now, thank goodness and ready to take on the week. hope yours is off to a good one! will be back on wednesday with a banana cake recipe. oh boy it's a goodie. x

the new love of my life.

some retro canister love.

pretty plate love.

an opshop trip is never complete without johnson.

some tablecloth and upholstery fabric love.
