This week's finds

I'm trying to cut down on my thrifting addiction. Fingers crossed we'll have a house soon (I hate auctions!) because I'm seriously running out of space. This week I did find a few treasures though that I couldn't resist. The laboratory jar is HUGE ... 53cm in fact. It and the shell lamp were eBay purchases. My second shell lamp. I'm hoping to use these on a veranda with lots of cane furniture and greenery. The sailing cup is from the 1931/1932 sailing season and is going straight to the man cave. Kelvin is a very good sailor so he's particularly happy with this find. Secretly my favourite is the Trobriand Island footed bowl. I LOVE Papua New Guinea pieces and I have several of these island carvings. OK that's it for this week. I just have to promise not to buy anything more next week. Most of these are going in my prop cupboard. It's so bad now that I have to rotate things out of storage because I have no room. Fingers crossed soon I will have news!!!!

That shell lamp is stunning, I love Brisbane for the verandahs and the greenery. Fingers crossed you find a home soon, auctions are tooooo stressing. S.

Thanks Suzanne. The auction is in 2 weeks and it's killing me :) All I want is a nice cool veranda with lots of lattice, cane furniture and so many plants that I'd curse every time I had to water them but wouldn't get rid of any of them.
