Palm Springs

Howdy ya'll (getting in the american spirit). I've finally found a bit of time to put a haphazard post together of some photos of palm springs, my first destination. It was pretty darn awesome!

We stopped at the dinosaurs of Cabazon, which were as fantastic as expected. So big and tacky. And one had a giftshop inside!

I saw a few of these cactus letterboxes whilst cruising round looking at houses and I so badly want one!

Just a cute little daggy cafe at the aeroplane museum. Had lots of vintage aeroplane decorations.

The houses there were absolutely amazing! And there were so many of them. Just whole streets of mid-century goodness. 

Anyway, hopefully get a chance to share some of my amazing thrift finds soon. Hope you all have a lovely week :-)

Off to America today, hooray! My knee is an awful lot better and I'm off crutches now :-D First stop is Palm Springs, then Yellowstone National Park for about a week, then I'm off to uni at Colorado. I'm getting super excited!

Just an old photo from when my fam and I visited America in 2000 (?).  I'm the one getting carried :-P

I'll probably be pretty absent here for the next 6 months what with being in America, but I'm sure I'll keep y'all updated on my travels and (hopefully awesome) thrift finds.
but taa taa for now x

Kitsch ♡

So I'm off to America soon so my sister gave me my christmas presents early, yay! All three things below are from my big sis and they are wonderfully kitsch. 

I'm particularly smitten with this tacky music box. Isn't it hideously wonderful! 
(sorry for the terrible angle but the background is a mirror so I couldn't get a good photo) 

Anyway, hope y'all are having a swell week x
