A little bit naughty

I know I've been remise and maybe some of you are wondering what has happened to Thrifty Tuesday. Well, I've realised that running it every week is possibly just fueling my shopaholic tendencies - not that this is bad thing when you think about the bargains and (if op shopping) giving money to a good cause.

It's a space thing. So I'm going to be a bit sporadic in my posts going forward - I'm sure those who lack a bit of self control like me (now and again...) will understand! :-) I have thrown in the little brass swan you see (hardly takes up much room now does it) on the right to make up for a recent lack of posts but this is sadly going to be the last for the year.

Have a lovely Tuesday and if you have the space keep on thrifting!

Finders Keepers...

Just spent the better part of my morning at the bi-annual (for Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne) Finders Keepers markets. Highly recommend a visit. Here are some of the things I bought:

Lovely vintage pillow cases (which have yellow flowers all over them) from the gorgeous girls at Frankie; a beautiful lace waistcoat handmade by Melinda at Roger & Peach (I've been looking for one for ages but couldn't find one that fitted properly); and lastly vintage Christmas cards - so fun! by Leeloo.

Cosying up

It's definitely a time for cosying up right now. I got back from an exhausting business trip to Melbourne last night, curled up with Tears of the Girafe by Alexander McCall Smith, played some classical music and lit some candles. Bliss.
