Flickr finds - vintage pottery


Jo's place

I've been so busy at work and most thrift shops have been closed. What's a girl to do? Take a holiday of course! I'm not posting or going to work next week so I can ..... wait for it ..... paint my apartment. Sorry I don't know how to relax. Only a few finds this week. Two little frames that I'll add to a grouping I'm doing for the lounge room. The gold one will be painted white and the vintage mirror frame will be home for one of my peacock prints. Can't show you all of my new etsy letterpress. Bad cuss words. Got it at rar rar press, full of fab and funny letterpress goodies. Kim will be posting all week and I've seen the cool stuff she has found. I'll drop in occasionally to say hi if I have the time. Have a great New Year everyone!


Holiday reading part 3

One last holiday reading guide to help fill the gap until the big boys and girls come back to play. Once again it's a mix of blogs you may know, ones I've been lurking on and new ones (to me). Have fun exploring their archives. We'll be back to WINKS (weekend links) next week and do I have some great links saved for you!


Favourite dining rooms

This post is of some of my favourite dining rooms photos I've posted this year. Dining rooms are one of my favourite rooms to decorate because I think the bolder the better. Unfortunately, my new itty bitty house doesn't even have one, so I will have to make due with these photos. (Beat this Jo!)

I see your kitchens and I raise you ....

.... more favourite rooms, including my favourite outdoor room. I'm going for sheer number not categories, see if I can win this game of favourite room poker with Kim. Lovely weather in Australia Kim for soaking in that tub staring at that view. (Actually that's not true right now. There is a cyclone brewing off the coast.)
