from another era.

1, 2 & 3. A red vintage tin from a favourite shop in noosa
4. An old jar (also from that favourite shop in noosa) filled with penguin pencils
5. A London underground map linen tea towel from the antique centre
6. vintage pillowcases & placemat
7. A cute top from a local thrift shop

I love it when you come across beautiful old things at the bottom of a pile, crammed in the middle of a rack, or hidden behind multiple items on the floor. Antiques each have their own story, and I think that's what makes them so special.

here comes summer.

yesterday i returned from the most relaxing holiday i've had in years. once again i was reminded just how beautiful our Queensland coastline is. sun, sand, reading, great coffee, awesome gelato and plenty of salt water. the perfect way to begin 2012!
