pretty faded vintage sheets
aren't they lovely...
Some of these are going to be cut into fat quarters for Kellie's vintage sheet swap. If you live in Australia it's not too late to join in, just hit the pretty button for more info...imagine getting a package of prettiness like this in your mailbox...
not everyone shares my love for kitschy souvenirs...
I can nearly always find something that fits this description!
love that shiny disco frame!
You've probably seen Vera Neumann's scarves before...every op-shop I visit seems to have at least one tucked away, but I have never found a print before. Yay! Apparently Vera was a houshold name in the 20th century. I like this description of her work "blooming florals and strong geometric prints" (can't remember source. sorry.)
And I couldn't resist these either
sweet sweet SWEET!
These make me smile. I love their naivete and innocence and for twenty cents each how could I leave them behind?
What have you bought for twenty cents lately?
Sticking with animals, one of my most favourite finds yesterday was this...
Golden Boy by Gig.
This is my first big eye animal print and it was also my first find of the day. This is from a series called Pity Puppies...our dog looks at me just like this whenever food's involved!
On her excellent web site Yorik describes Gig as "able to take pathetic to a whole new level" Perfect. See more here http://www.angelfire.com/ny/yorik/gig/puppy.html
I also bought this, more of a mythical animal. I'm not really sure what I like about it...probably the gorgeous orange silk background, but I do like it. My daughter says it's "fugly!" Ouch. What do you think?
like or loathe?
Just one more thing to show till next time, apart from tea towel of course...
bubbly glass vase. Made in Japan.
I like this. Alot.
And now at long last, here's the t.t.
p.s. one more thing before I go. Promise. Scarlett is giving away lots of pretty things on her blog, check it out here http://scarlettloveselvis.blogspot.com/ because you've got to be in it to win it!!!
Over and out.
