op shop find

I popped into an oppy (thrift shop) on my way home today and I am so awfully glad I did because look what I found for only $1!!
 I have a thing for hideous vintage jumpers and this heads straight to the top of my collection. Now I need it to be cold or to go skiing so I can wear it!

It's hand-stitched in Peru and the little figures are 3D!  I am in love!

Just a few snapshots from Thailand. The bike in the last photo is an old-school 'fire-engine'. Awesome right?!

Home again :-)

I'm back! Thailand was a heap of fun!! I will do a post soon with a few photos :-) For now I will leave you with a scan of a sweet postcard from my grandma's house.

Valentine cut outs

Yet another Valentines post. I do love my holidays :-) These are just simple cardboard cut out notes. Not a particularly original idea but I like them and think they are very effective so I thought I would share. 

These three are personal jokes so don't make much sense, sorry. If anyone is a Buffy fan they will understand the middle one ;-)

valentines snail mail

Sending some love through the post for Valentines 

Made the heart stamps from a pencil eraser, stitched the hearts with embroidery floss, cut out little 'do not open' banners and added vintage seals for a finishing touch :-)
