heart of gold.


Oh neil young, how your songs make my heart beat faster. This post is dedicated to the musical genius and quite conveniently compliments the golden/autumn welcoming treats I found yesterday. No opshop adventure is complete without a Johnson find, so when I found what can only be described as THE Johnson find of the year for me…I was over the moon. My eyes scoured the shelves of this newly discovered oppy hoping and wishing for a piece of floral beauty. It took me a few seconds to realise what was staring back at me and as I took it down from the shelf, handling it with such care like it was gold (well, it pretty much is) I couldn’t believe what I had in my arms. A few squeals of glee and some cuddles later and it was mine. A pristine, in the box set of 4 johnson sunflower cups and saucers. Not only is this a new design for me, it’s my first Johnson purchase that I’ve found in it’s original box. A lot of hoo hah over some retro floral crockery but I know that many of you out there share the same love affair. I know of a few special ladies in particular that I will be dedicating a post to later in the week. You know where to come for your Johnson fix this week! happy treasure hunting gorgeous ones.
