Little Shop houses a few of my tins (I have many) that I use as props in the shop - gosh I don't know how many times I could have sold them and I am asked at least 3 times a day by customers - I even get sneaky customers who have asked me before and still try. These tins are mine and I love them and I get up super early and hunt through boxes at the markets when your all probably snuggled up in bed. I love them even more because 98% of my tins have actually been made in Australia - back in the day when most things were made in Australia. I also love the wear and tear, the rusty bits and dings and the fact that sometimes you cant remove the lid and when you shake them you can hear surprises lurking inside... is it just cake crumbs or vintage sewing goodies or Nanna's secret $5 note stash?

Vintage Linen Booty

I never had a girly room as a child and my husband thinks that I deserve one! So out with the androgynous look we have been sporting for the past 15 years and dust off and unwrap all those gorgeous linens I have had packed away for ever and a day. O' Happy, Happy day's!

New cushions and other bits for Cása la little shop

These new cushions  by Roddy and Ginger are on their way to my home! After much deliberation - I went for one of each colour. Ahhh... Sweet Birdy Love!

Along with this scalloped bunting  by sweet jessie, for who knows where I will put it - but who cares! It's scalloped and cute! and will look equally adorabe packed away in my closet until I find the right spot. FYI the bunting I purchased last week from Made by Mosey is looking a real treat across the bedroom window - in which lé tall husband  played a most helping hand.
