I spotted a wonderfully shaped vase through the window of our local Op Shop at the weekend. An Op Shop for those of you not in NZ is a Charity Shop if your in the UK and a Thrift Shop if you reside in the US. The shop was shut and I knew that I couldn’t get back there until yesterday so for several days I had everything crossed that it wouldn’t have sold. I popped in yesterday and there it was with my name on it and at just $4 (NZD) I couldn’t have been happier. I love the way it looks with my white pots.
It’s kind of a sea blue/green but it’s hard to tell in the above shot as it’s pretty overcast here today. This photo gives you a better idea.
In case you’re wondering the vase to the left was a birthday gift, the next one along was brought at Habitat whilst the two little finger pots were picked up at an Open House Art Trail one Brighton Festival.
I’ve decided to join in on Sally’s Vintage Button Swap. I adore sorting through my collection and you can never have too many. I remember that my Mum had a large tin that once held shortbread and it was filled to the brim with buttons. I loved going through them as a child.
Nobody has recommended a good book club blog to me yet but I did come across this site. They have a huge selection of classics that can be emailed to you daily,chapter by chapter. I’ve arranged for each installment to hit my Inbox at 7.30am so that I can read whilst having breakfast. A lovely way to start the day methinks. Right now I’m reading The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie.
Thank you for your great comments last post. An extra special thank you goes out to those who left their very first comment on my blog. So lovely. Tomorrow I’m heading out to a felt workshop with my neighbour. I’ll be sure to take my camera with me.
Until next time…
