thrifty thursday

a wrap up of the latest op-shoppy finds that now live in our house, welcome my lovelies!

two vintage board books - illustrated and printed in Japan - too cute!

A whole hoard of books for the wee one, including:
'where did i come from' from 1977
'the digging-est dog'
'how do dinosaurs clean their rooms?'
'frosty the snowman' golden book from the 60's

some great kitschy finds for the kitch-en:

the salt and pepper shakers are on long handles to shake-a shake-a over the BBQ! And the barrel comes with 12 cups. small cups though, so we figure rum?

Some cute things for the table; capsicum coasters, a wild chicken toothpick holder and some chillis that hold napkins. they look great on our laminex table!

and some lovelies for me!
A leather 50's look handbag (it has LV logos on all the brass trims, but i have no idea of it's a real one or a damn good fake-but i don't care, i just like the look of it!)
And an old leather dr's style briefcase (missing the key, phooey) but gorgeous nonetheless.

Some cute shoes for summer, both worn only once or twice, yay

And finally some cute little underthings. i'm always a bit partial to vintage lingerie, especially if you pair it with crisp clean white bonds briefs or tanks to modernise it. I've never really gone for the true vintage reproduction look-i think it's just way too costumey for my taste, but i do like to incorporate pieces into my wardrobe in fresh ways. and now that baby weight is all gone (thanks breastfeeding!), with the exception of my enormous norgs of course, i can start wearing cute clothes again, woohoo! just in time for summer too, yay!

ok, off to bed, my brain is mush. toodles!
