On the go


There are numerous half baked projects going on over here. Here is a sneak peek of one that is nearly finished.  Let me just say in a previous life it was a nasty orange stained pine, it's a little too small for me and the owner probably wishes it was pink. Just a few more knobs to paint and pop in place  and I'll be back with the big picture.

In the meantime, there is always some time for a quick op shop visit. Can you believe this little coat? Pink velvet with an embroidered collar. Hoping it passes miss Liongirl's approval rating system. I wish it was in my size!





Apples or pears? Or both. Any thoughts on the intended purpose of this dish? I presume it is not for the decorative placement of one pear and one apple. I am thinking either keys or loose change.




And a gorgeous egg cup for miss Liongirl who has recently discovered the joy of gooey eggs with toast soldiers.


And some wonderful additions to our book collections. An Australian animal little golden book, and another hard cover Enid Blyton.



Better run, vintage wallpaper calling.

  2. I think I have a sibling to your apple and pear dish. Mine has a sort of sunset motif going on but the colours and cross hatching are identical though. I like to use mine for cheese and crackers.

  3. Oh how I am missing the call of the op shop. Ron and Brian will be worrying! I must fit one more visit in just to keep the itch at bay. Your pink jacket is so very Enid Blyton. Hope she likes it! You never can tell!!!
