Collection Post: Patches

 This is my latest obsession. At the moment they are all blu-tacked onto my wall but when I collect enough, I have grand plans to sew them onto an old woollen blanket like this one (isn't it perfect!) and pretend I'm a scout.

The one's above are probably my favourite.

This is basically my whole collection so far (minus a few that didn't quite fit)

I like vintage ones best, but I couldn't help but buy these new ones from the internet. I'm meant to be saving for my trip to America but I have no restraint >_>


Speaking of travel, I am off to Tasmania with the fam on Saturday - we're going to be hiking in cradle mountain in the freezing cold (wish me luck). So I will be back in the blogging world in a week or so, but until then, adios xx

  1. EMILY!!! I got the most amazing/wonderful package today, I'm on a package high - you're so awesome! Ahhhh, can't wait till I have proper internet again so I can blog/brag about it :P I've started gathering a return package for you, I want it to be amazing before I send it but this post might be a giveaway to what I've found already for you! eep :) So fun! If you ever make it to the sunny coast, qld we definitely need to go op shopping together! Enjoy Tassie, I really enjoyed my holiday there (last?) year, cradle mountain being one of my favourite spots - I think the prettiness overwrites the cold :)

    3. ooooh yay I'm so excited now! I just caught up on your posts and your new house looks awesome! no rush with the parcel- moving looks so stressful and busy, I can imagine you haven't had much time to op shop!

  2. What a cool thing to collect! I don't think I usually see patches in thrift stores and such, but maybe I'm just not looking around! Your collection is lovely. :)

  4. These are the greatest and totally reminded me of Moonrise Kingdom as someone above me already mentioned. The Chocolate Lover and Helping Seniors patches are by far my favorites. :) Have a great trip! xoxo

  6. This made me smile. I used to have a collection of these kinds of cloth badges when I was little. I don't know what happened to them! Have a great time on Cradle Mountain. I'm jealous!
