Long time no post! I'm very very lazy and yet quite busy at the moment- not a very good combination when it comes to blogging, I'm afraid.
Here's a quick rundown of what's been a happening so that I can move on to the good stuff:

Been to Thailand
(See! This was an awesome installation outside the art gallery in Siam Square)

Moved house
Had a birthday
Bought a house
Been Christmas shopping, wrapping and shindig-ing.
Work work working!

There, boring and over with!

Moving on, I found a really old bunch of photos from an opshopping trek I did with some friends a few months ago (yes, months... sigh).
I'm not sure if I even got through photographing all my finds before I was swept up in all my laziness, but here are some of my favourites.

Some amazingly terrible cat mugs... Eurgh!

A book on vintage cheeses (hehe).

Okay, so it wasn't opshopped, but my bf bought me this AMAZING Kiki Smith book... It's beautiful and glossy and full of her wonderful prints, many of which I hadn't been able to find on google image search ;)

Ah, kitschtastic. I love the tacky covers and doggy glamour shots...

And I may have just picked this picture because it looks EXACTLY like my doggy.

One of my favourite finds, this Thumbelina book has beautiful 70's illustration. It's so colourful and bold, and full of intricate details that are just gorgeous.

Mooore fairytales... I especially love the animals in this Snow White book. They are totally tattoo-able!

Isn't this cover amazing? For such a basic school book as well...

A treasury of golden books! Good find, I say.

This book was the first of many Australian themed items I found on the day...

Scarves, diaries and teatowels, oh my!

I love bicentennial themed paraphernalia! So tacky and delicious. I think this swan is my favourite though, I was so annoyed, there was also this amazing gaudy serving tray from the same year, but they were asking faaaar more than I could afford.

Creepy horse shirt and vintage stickers.

Finally, this fantastic vintage globe was $20, but it's huuuge, and they cost far more than that new (and don't look nearly as awesome).

That's it for now, but I've got a few more posts up my sleeve, so I'll be around more than I have been.


  1. Which op shops were you at? You've got some ace finds there.

  2. Armadale/Kelmscott area opshops around Perth- I see you're in Denmark though so that maaay not be very helpful. ;)
    It's almost my favourite hunting ground- second to Rockingham. Those dudes have no idea what they're getting rid of!
    Thanks for the comment anyway :)

  3. Holy moly! They are some of the best finds!
