Hi Boys & Girls (well Girls anyway..), have you been finding anything amazing lately in your travels around the oppies & markets? I've had a busy week so I haven't been up to my usual adventures....no tip shop either. But I do have some treasures to show you that I may not have blogged about before. The top photo is of a little doggie, Humphrey, who has been living with us for many years now. He sits on a cushion and is just so sweet. I had a phase of collecting china dogs so I have quite a few but he is a bit special.
I'd like to make something similar but I'm not sure how to begin...
Have you seen this little stitched picture before? I can't remember, but hey, it's so lovely you can see it again! I also really like birds and am forever looking at them in the garden, in the sky and listening for their different calls and songs. I love the colours in this and the homemade-ness of it, it's stuck to cardboard with tape at the back and is folky & sweet.
And here is sweet Sunday all dressed up for my dad's wedding last night. Her dress & cardi are both from local oppies and doesn't she look adorable?
More sweetness in these illustrations...loving the colours and the simple joy in them. I found this book at an oppie in Ballarat. Do you look at the children's books in opshops? I can't help it, even though we have a million books already. The illustrations and stories can be so inspiring.
I've had a crazy & at times emotional weekend, not to mention being pulled over by the police & then later locking my keys in the car. More on that later! Hope you had a happy and drama free weekend, I'm off to Sophie's for some distraction! See you soon sweeties xo
