I love these little glasses. They were two dollars each which is probably a bit pricey, but they sucked me in because they're from Western Australia...
I grew up in the bush and when I was a little girl I used to pick donkey orchids ( they really do have little donkey faces...so sweet) and spider orchids all the time.
This in spite of May Gibbs telling me not to, in my very well read copy of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie (a bit like this one)
and a big NO NO these days.
I bought the fan too btw, but not at the same op-shop...funny how sometimes a bit of a theme develops when you're op-shopping...does it happen to you too?
Anyway I must not digress! I also bought this:
Pyrex Gooseberry (1957) top and
Made in Japan
(like my barkcloth?)
this Grizelle vase
and the vintage sheets too
more bamboo...see what I mean about themes...
I was very happy to find another flower frog. In it's box too. Bartlett. Made in England. I think it's made of lead...it weighs a tonne!
This poor pooch also found a new home
look, he's crying "pearls"!
Made in Japan
kitschy and useful...it's a sugar bowl.
There is more to show and tell, but I'll save it for another day...except for some Life in Australia pics and today's tea towel. I'll show you those now because, well, you know that's just what I do...
Signs of progress, Surfers Paradise
there is so much to love about these photos
and this tea towel!
