OP SHOP BOOTY - recent finds

3 funky old photo albums from
the dump op shop. 


Very cute shoes for Iris.
That girl is easy to buy for!!

KITSCHness..
I am utterly and strangely attracted to this rose-topped basket.

Inside another glorious kitsch number..
Candle holder centrepiece?

Dress. Love Love Love it. 
About knee length on me so maybe more a shirt thing.





Long scarf

This fishing game has been amazingly popular with my whole crew.
Very low-tech for these days!

Thanks for all the comments re my house nostalgia. Don't get me wrong- we're happy to move (obviously - we bought the house!) Just as I pack I get sentimental pangs. Often.
But we're excited too..


Happy days!

Right, that's it. I'm coming over and stealing everything. That dress is awesome, the photo album's gorgeous and the basket's so wrong, it's right. x

We had the fishing game when the boys were younger. We all played it for hours.

Oh I love the curler basket! I had one just the same, so cool. Don't you wish you could shrink your feet to fit those super cute wee shoes. V

oh yeah that plastic basket, I think I had pink and sister had blue... but so sad when the rose came off. i think we used them for rubbish bins, you know all the crafty paper stuff.
