What is it with Blogger at the moment? I've been trying to post for the last two days and have run into problem after problem, insufferable I say! You'd think with that complaining I might actually have something interesting to go on about but sadly, no. The husband had his birthday on Wednesday and try as I might I still couldn't manage a birthday gift that either worked (hello dodgy vintage Atari video game) or fit (I ordered the wrong sized t-shirt from the US) or tasted good (too much seasoning the Shepards pie). If this was a one off I'd have a bit of a laugh and be done with it, but I've gotten it wrong every year since the kids came along....... I did get in some good thrifting onWednesday though. Freddy and I headed east for a bit of outer suburbs thrifting while Ada was in Creche. As usual in those small suburbs the bargains rained like manna from heaven or more realistically, like crap from an over flowing box above. Loads of fabric, sheets, knitwear and homewares, all waiting patiently to be plundered by some greedy thrift Viking. None were spared, we were merciless and returned victorious.
I'll share most of my finds on the weekend, but this collection of spoons was looking so pretty I thought I would get in early with a bit of gloating. Accidental collections are the best, especially when they're '5 for a dollar' and while I don't really need any more salad servers they looked to good to pass up and have made a cheerful addition to the kitchen. Not that I can actually photograph them in my kitchen. My kitchen is so ugly it like the 90's threw up all over a crack den and then they slapped an oven in it (illegally wired of course), still the 'Spoonflowers' are nice.
