Here are the things that tugged at my heart strings and said "buy me"...
Someone's wonky pottery project.
Kitschy,home-made Australiana-my favourite combination!
Boomerangs, spears, lizards, turtles! What's not to love?
And look how great it looks on my tablecloth...have I convinced you?
In complete contrast I also bought this
MORE religionalia! Although much sweeter and definetely less frightening than the rest of my collection! I paid six dollars which is top dollar for me, but even after thinking long and hard I still couldn't leave it behind. I love the painted roses on his cot.
Sticking with roses, this little box came home with me too
Sorrento, Italy I presume...
This is the last thing I bought, it's a pottery cruet set, slightly Scandinavian looking don't you think? I'll probably use it to put flowers in...
A quick aside...do you remember the little Danish "scoop" I blogged about here? http://lucyvioletvintage.blogspot.com/2011/02/today-im-going-to-show-you-some-more-of.html Well I have just found out that it's Royal Copenhagen Faience Ware, painted by Marianne Johnson in the early 1960's. One less mystery for me to solve!
Before I show you today's t.towel I want to share the most gorgeous kitschy interior with you. It's full to the brim with vintage/retro coolness. Here's a sneaky peek to wet your appetite...
