faux bois mail ♡

I love imitation wood- not sure why, it's so tacky but I just love it! I snapped up some faux bois wrapping paper at an oppy and made the envelope below and added some dymo labels and a typewritten letter to go inside :-)

op shop finds

Some things I purchased at op shops a little while ago. Those two funny looking things in the middle are salt and pepper shakers! I think they are so sweet with their little tartan pompom hats. I am in love with the glasses! I never find a set of 6 matching ones that are cheap! The box is just a cute little tupperware container. 

The Playtime Poodles book is brilliant- below are some pictures from it. A lot of the pages have rips and scribbles but I bought it anyway because it was only 20c and the pictures are so darn awesome! I love the bold colours!

Bowie cupcakes

Some David Bowie cupcakes I made for my sister. I bought the face thingo's off eBay - they're edible, but I can't say they taste the greatest. Still, they look fun :-) As hard as I try, I'm terrible at decorating cupcakes, it always just turns into a mess, so these are kinda a cheat way to make them look semi-decent :-P

I love love love cacti! I seriously can't get enough of them. I would buy a hundred and fill my whole room with them if I could but they are so darn expensive! These are my beloved cacti :-)

My ma bought this one for me at a garage sale and I love it!

 I've had this one for over a year and I'm pretty sure he's dead because he hasn't grown in all that time, but oh well :-P I love the little mexican on the tag and the funny grammar.

I found this pot at an op shop. It's made out of aluminium, like those pretty vintage cups you see.

Some buttons I embroidered :-) These are fun and easy to make - all you need is some pretty material and some self cover buttons which you can probably buy from most craft stores. I bought mine off etsy, and of course as soon as I had, I found a heap in an op shop for super cheap >_>
