Things to do, things to clean, frocks to fix, shops to fill, the list goes on.
First, lets see some new treasure that went into the weeny WAC shop this week.
Shabby floral flour sifter by Australian kitchen ware company Kande
Set of 1950s etched crystal harlequin parfait glasses
70s Polaroid camera, complete with original box, instructions & flashes
Anodised canister set, much better colours in person, dang these pooky iphone pics!
40s crinoline lady sweetie tin, crustic & oh so cute
Another shabby flour sifter, great for all those flower-loving folks
I've gone crazy on anodised stuff lately, not only do we have the two cup sets & canisters shown here but there's a whole kitchen full of anodised goodies in store this week.
Best 50s drinking glasses ever, and yes I'd have kept them if I didn't already have a set, as they are the best-ever to use.
Not to mention the jewellery, which of course is much brighter and more sparkly in person!
Hard to choose which one I like best when it comes to these beauties.
Of course there's been a far less glamorous side to the past couple of weeks, too: see below. A massive clean-up took place after the mini-cyclone we copped two weeks ago, which included a ton of scrubbing, washing down, fire lit, fans on, heaters on, dehumidifying, you name it, everything we could think of to prevent potential mould growth was done.
Sue even put this pic up on our Facebook page, (yeah thanks mate) and don't worry the clothes weren't as close as it looks here.
We trudged through this for 7 hours, scouring for vintage treasures. Lucky I had my new blue/green/purple zig-zag stripe boots (wellies) on, well someone had to make a statement didn't they?
I was keen to take this lovely wee vintage caravan home, but if this truck and men couldn't pull it through the mud then there's no way my van could have done it, damn!
While I was out playing in the mud (let's not mention the sunburn, what a peanut I am), VB had great fun visiting her cousin and playing with quite possibly the largest cat on earth.
And lucky me, I got a guided tour of this fabulous vintage lair, the home of a mad collector who managed to offload some goodies on to me.
This is what I left behind, I'd have taken the mixmaster if it were blue, and I was pretty keen on the kitchen cupboards too- which reminds me, my new vintage kitchen gets installed in two weeks' time!!
VB started school this year, which is perhaps the biggest news of all. After an extremely bumpy start and many tears in the first two weeks, here's hoping she's settling in now, fingers and toes and all bits crossed!
