I made some mail for a few of my friends to wish them good luck for our uni finals. I love red and pink together lately! Speaking of uni finals - I have mine coming up which is why I haven't been blogging much. That and the fact that I broke my laptop :-(   

Some mail I recieved this week. A vintage postcard from Jaime :-) and a purchase from etsy that came in a cute drawstring envelope

Op shop goodies

I went for an op shop day last week with my mum and we came back with quite a haul. All this (aside from the deck chairs which my mum bought for $8 each) cost $30 which I thought was pretty good seeing as the lord of the rings books set me back $15. They were a bit pricey but they are from the 1970s and in perfect condition -also I'm a massive fan ;-)

The wooden board is apparently a cheese platter, which I have absolutely no use for but I love kitsch Australiana and it was cheap. The wire thing is a record holder, which I'm awfully happy with.

A cute saucepan, little orange dish and some pyrex. The mint one isn't actually pyrex but I really liked how it looked with the orange one.

The hideous golden thing is a thermometer made in Japan. I have a few of them now, they are so tacky! I actually found this one at the same dump recycling place I found my last one almost a year ago which I thought was a bit of a crazy coincidence. The rose wall hanging was made in West Germany and I love it!

And it wouldn't be a good op shop haul if I didn't pick up some christmas goodies.

I am in love with these deck chairs. They are so darn comfy!

Christmas seals

I'm hopeless when it comes to vintage christmas, I just keep buying! I bought a heap of seals off etsy and I can't wait until I can send out some christmas mail adorned with these! These are my favourite ones :-)

Op Shop Finds

I only went to two op shops this week but I still found a few things :-) 

This little tin globe was $8 which is usually more than I pay for anything but it was just too sweet to pass and my mum collects vintage globes so it will make a good chrissy present :-)

A great pavlova plate and some weird 70s coasters that seem to be made of marbelised sand (there are 6, but only 3 made it in the photo)

And some sweet unused vintage cards
