view from platform into our handkerchief-sized front courtyard
Luckily the op-shop Gods were smiling on me last Wednesday
and I've got some treasures to show you from then.
O.K. first up, did you ever feel like running away from home when you were little? Maybe you still have the urge from time to time? Well how's this for the perfect little case to take with you
Isn't it sweet? and there's just enough room for all your running away essentials...
I also found this teeny tiny little shoe
I have never seen anything like this before, have you? It's made of felt and decorated very prettily with shells. And look at the gorgeous Liberty print fabric it's lined with. Here it is next to a USB so you can get a better idea of its size
The sole of this little shoe is covered with...
Although I would not usually buy something like this I am completely besotted with this little "fairy" shoe. It intrigues me and I would love to know more about it...
A small statue of Jesus also came home with me
"Jesus Wants Me for his Sunbeam..."
(p.s. don't you love the cool wasps nest I found in our garden)
I pounced on this sweet birdy spice rack pretty quickly when I found it under a pile of old linen (I wonder if someone had hidden it there? I'm sorry if it was you...)
"rockin robbin tweet tweet"
(I've just noticed this little co-incidence btw...)
One more thing to show...until tomorrow or the next day...it's slightly left field (but then all the best things are don't you think...)
German Shepherd on Black Velvet
(this is for my friend Shani who LOVES German Shepherds. As much as I love my Chihuahua! And that's saying something!)
Now might be a good time to share this Dorothy Draper quote with you:
"isn't it a good thing that we don't all have the same taste?"
And now, another tea towel
it's a doggy Rodriquez!
