cave of treasures





Today whilst opshoping ( i got some lovely finds today - below) i came across a little used bookstore that was full to the brim with not only books but antiques, clothes and hidden treasures.
Me being in a good bookstore is like a kid in a candy store but THIS was amazing! i cannot explain it, i just had to take pictures.

We had lunch at a little cafe and i sampled some nice dips from our dip platter, plus the bread was so nice.

Today i bought an owl for my collection :) (actually a pepper shaker thats lost its salt, aww), vintage MINT condish stockings in blue, some"lady pants"(vintage, tailored, baggy pants) and this amazing beaded lipstick case that i will use as a coin purse.
Great Day!

  4. You look like a model, and I love your name! So quaint and cute. :)

    It took me nearly 2.5 yrs to grow it this long. I may cut it but just a tiny-teeny bit. ;) -it's hard to say "bye..."

  13. Thank you to everyone who became a follower or left a comment.
    Phoebe: This little shop was actually south of sydney on the outskirts of the sutherland shire (which made it even more out of place and amazing!)
