oppy finds

I only went to a couple of oppy's this week and I didn't find much, just some christmas decorations, a pyrex dish and a wooden poodle with jewelled eyes (which I love).

My favourite find though, was these cute poodles that remind me of this amazing collection

I'm linking up to Sir Thrift A Lot :-)

confetti cards

I am more than a little obsessed with confetti at the moment. Chances are, if you receive a letter from me, there will be confetti. In order to satisfy my need for some confetti goodness I made some cards :-) 

They are super simple to make- all you need to do is write what you want the card to say (I looked up some pretty fonts for inspiration) and then glue on some confetti. easy!

The sun was shining on this winters day so my boyfriend and I decided to have a little picnic with croissants, strawberry's and homemade scones :-)

Ugly Shell Collection

**warning: If you are not one for tacky/ugly things it's probably best you skip this post**

I mentioned having a collection of ugly shell art a little while ago and a few people asked that I post it, so here goes. 
As per usual, its not a fantastic collection as I limit myself to things that are less than a few dollars (with the exception of the shell chandelier, which was just too good to pass up). They all sit on this old shelf, straight as you walk into my room so that everyone gets to appreciate my hideous taste :-P 


a trinket box, random shell thingo and a planter


possibly dogs?

and my beloved chandelier

sorry for the hideousness of this post. I will be back to snail mail and prettiness now :-)

Snail mail + Able and Game

 Able and Game are an awesome couple in Melbourne who make brilliant cards for all occasions. I am a massive fan and have their art scattered throughout my room. I thought I would send them thank you card because they always add in little extras when you buy from them and because, as you know, I love sending mail and any excuse will do ;-)  

I found these 'Thanks' cards at an oppy. They are pink and shiny with lightning bolts, I love them!

 My boyfriend sent all these cards in the mail and they are now hanging in my room :-)

You can't really see it but the top frame is an able and game card :-)

Incoming Mail

A lovely letter from Marisa of omiyage. She painted the envelope to match the squirrel card and included some heart stickers and washi tape!! It made me awfully happy :-)

Vintage Cactus Postcards

Recently I bought a whole bunch of vintage cactus postcards off eBay and they arrived!! I am completely in love with them and can't wait to send some out! So if you would like a cactus postcard for free just email me at and I will send you one :-)

Aren't they simply divine? Some of them are used and the postmarks show that they range from the 1940s to the 1970s. I love that some of them are used, it makes them so special. Below is one of my favourite used ones. I just find it so strange and funny that they asked for a rug catalogue on a cactus postcard- so random. And I love that it's typewritten.

I also bought some vintage Los Vegas postcards - mainly because of that divine pink hotel in the bottom left, oh how I would love to stay there!

New Goodies

It doesn't get better than a giant gold flamingo and a new cactus. 

 My wonderful boyfriend brought this all the way back from New Zealand because he knew I would absolutely love it. 

A lovely surprise gift from my sister :-)
