love is opshopped floral...


and what a fabulous love it is too. yesterday i spent the day wandering and rummaging with one of my favourite girlies and boy were there treats to be found. not as much as i usually encounter, but the delights i did uncover are a little bit special. i found my most perfect pyrex find to date, unearthed vintage floral fabric from underneath mounds of ugly placemats and picked up some delightful treats at rummage. an apron worthy of wearing all day everyday is my new favourite baking companion and a johnson sugar bowl has most certainly pulled at the heart strings. keeping well within my budget and nursing sunkissed cheeks has me still flying high from my blissful sunny saturday spent on the golden coast. happy sunday all!



johnson, stafford potteries AND floral japanese crockery, hello heaven.

Lots of sweet florals indeed! On your Coast op-shopping adventures, do you ever pop into the three op-shops at Oxenford? They are all in walking distance to each other and I found many beauties there when I used to live up that way. Might be worth a stop next time if you haven't been there before.

Thanks for the comment on my post today. It is a lovely exhibition, isn't it. :)
