On Sundays I like to walk down to the Esk Market with Theo while C sleeps in (I sleep in most other days). There is a stall there run by an older woman who collects dolls and she always has lots of vintage baby dresses for $3 each (which I suppose she dressed her dolls in), so I grab them by the bundle for my collection. I really hope I do have a girl baby one day to wear all of these dresses! Sometimes when I bring them home, I put one on Theo and watch him swish around in it - he loves it!
I found this sweet old pink radio at the aforementioned markets a few weeks ago. Unfortunately it had been dropped at some point and has a crack in it and doesn't turn on anymore, so is purely ornamental. I also picked up the cute tiny little metal tins at an opshop recently and thought they'd be perfect for housing tiny succulents.
We took a drive to Deloraine last week and visited our favourite antique store, Sunny's. They had around a hundred of these maps of Tasmanian regions, which I thought were quite beautiful. I picked up four of them. I am resisting the urge to cut them up and use them in collages.
A sweet little pink pinny from the markets.
We always walked past this framed image at the markets and C would joke that it was he and I, so one day I decided to buy it and now it sits above his desk, ha.
I found this little floral travel diary at the markets recently and thought it was so sweet. The information at the beginning made me smile. Deck sports!
FOUR pink dresses!
I don't know what it is about these, but I seem to be starting another collection.
A sweet little vase from the opshop (with roses and gardenias from my garden).
C bought this lovely old map of Tasmania from Sunny's last week too.
Two sweet little floral numbers.
A hand illustrated guide to indoor gardening. How dreamy!
A sweet little cherry dress.
And finally, one solitary boy's vintage outfit.
What have you been thrifting lately?
