Thursday Thrift



I just thought I'd share a couple of things I picked up on a little opshop journey my friend Sara and I took this week to look for bits and bobs for her move. She's moving into a very, very retro little apartment this week and I've been helping to move stuff and hunt down furniture. The place is all browns and oranges and every room is tiled - it is such a fun little place. And best of all, it has a view of the entire city. We can spot my tiny little house not too far off in the distance and have discussed setting up some kind of semaphore or tin-can-phone system. She'll be all moved in by the end of the week and the "nesting" period will begin. I love nesting. I want to move just so I can re-nest. I am going to vicariously nest through Sara.

I saw these odd little big eyed children prints at the Mission shop and almost didn't get pick them up. They're by the painter Ozz Franca and after doing a little hunting, I found that Rachele from the Nearsighted Owl found a print a little while back too. There are a whole lot more big eyed children prints to find - I'm pretty sure I need more. They're kind of delightfully creepy.





I also picked up a Cath Kidson-esque doona cover for our bed (C see appears to have no qualms with things pink or floral) and some retro looking dinner plates (only three sadly).
