treasure hunting.

this weekend has yielded some fine treats from the oppies and for only a handful of dollars. i'm on a pretty tight budget leading up to europe but my thrifting behaviour is still happening, just with a little more thought going into what i actually take home with me. the iphone has single handedly changed my spending behaviour, because if i can snap a photo of a pretty pattern to add to my look book of ideas, i don't need to part with any cash to actually enjoy it. weird, but it works. of course this excludes johnson and beautiful vintage floral, that joy is something beyond measure and must be grabbed with both hands immediately, if not sooner. i've had a lovely sunday of opshopping and baking, perhaps the best cake i have EVER made. a big call, so i'll leave it up to you to try when i post the recipe later. afternoon tea was spent with some favourite girls and as i finish off my cider and sketching up plans for my next exhibition, i can begin to gear myself towards the week ahead. some fun friday night plans are in store so i hope the excitement can see me out the working week. happy sunday!

hello beautiful johnson, where have you been all my life?

jamboree by broadhurst. funness on a plate.

large mountain tapestry for $3.75? don't mind if i do.

biscuit, just one...because someone is watching their weight. whatever.

fun floral fabric that i feel the need to upholster a chair with.

tulips, NZ style.

oh that's right, another baby cardigan for my not yet conceived baby girl. cool.

oh kiln craft you make my heart sing/squeal/yelp/cry with love.
