a little birdy told me...
that you can't see the rest of this lovely silk painting because a clumsy clot (that'll be me!) stood on it and broke the glass...and it's going to cost way more than the two dollars I paid for it to have the glass replaced. Ouch.
More German pottery for le collection
I haven't had the time, or to be truthful, the inclination to research the mark on this yet...but I'm quite sure it was made in the 80's, it has that look and feel about it.
I have also recently learnt that brown is not the new black as far as German pottery is concerned...the vibrant reds, purples, oranges etc are all the go...which should come as no surprise really...
A couple of creepy hands
memories of "thing" and The Addams Family (click click)
I've temporarily hung Frida above our bed...just to keep an eye on things...I bought her from a beautifully curated vintage shop in the hills of Perth called Vintage Spinster (well worth a visit if you live in Perth, even if it's just to check out its interior which is lovely)
p.s. my husband hates this, he reckons she's watching him...and I do have to say it really does look like she's giving him/us/me the "evils"
He likes this though
this pup is huge btw, much bigger than the usual garden gnome variety of china poodles. Don't you think he looks like he's wearing a wig?
and he doesn't mind this either
and speaking of kitschy souvenirs, how about
and it's actually made in Australia too...those were the days!
I also found a couple of old games, this one's my favourite (and the closest I'll ever get to being a Bond girl)
there's even a secret 007 notebook inside!
I'm thinking Martinis, hors d' oeuvres, and a game of Thunderball might be a fun way to spend Friday night...
we'll look a little something like this...yeah right!
