jubilee.


happy jubilee weekend all. it's a rainy saturday here in brisbane and i've lost count of how many times i've boiled the kettle. i had a delicious sleep in and then took my lazy butt to a couple of my local oppies. after handing in my exhibition proposal yesterday, i had a small light bulb moment of wanting to find a small bit of furniture to help complete my installation. perhaps a little retro phone table that i could display a teapot and cup combo on? so it was to my surprise after ferreting for not much longer than 10 minutes in my first oppy stop this morning, that i stumbled across a sight to behold. lugging it to the counter pronto to avoid any snatch and grab situations between me and another opper, this gem was all mine. i've already planned to snag an anthropologie drawer handle when in london to complete this little beauty. the mustard vinyl seat is in perfect condition and the legs make my heart beat a little faster. a tupperware party, breakfast at apples with my little sister and some art making will complete this sans sun weekend. hoping all is well where you are.



the little gem.

johnson right at home.

a little japanese delight.

Sometimes you see things and it makes you say "ahhh that reminds of Nanna", that's what the phone table made me feel.
