My holiday nearly over, I manically visited all my old haunts in Christchurch.
What are you looking at?
Being of the wrong demographic, I have no idea who Emily the Strange is, but I love this vinyl bag!
I hate being looked at, but paradoxically love to wear interesting clothes, so I'm constantly at war with myself over whether I want to blend into the background or look really out there.
Anyone else have that problem or am I just psycho?
This little jug isn't my favourite colour (brown) but I love the sinuous leafed handle.
A pink and purple cup and saucer.
The light in this photo is amazing.
I don't know how I did it, my camera is a robot so it can take the credit.
I'm pretty sure this is a Crown Lynn coffee mug.
Don't you lurve the heart motif?
The evil troll in this shop charged me the same price for one cup as for four.
I couldn't see three more that I liked, so just the one thank you.
A wire cup and saucer stand.
The Crown Lynn cups and saucers were prepared earlier.
Talking of evil trolls, the troll in this shop charged me full price for the set, even though I didn't want the original hideous cups and saucers that came with it.
Luckily I accidentally dropped the saucers on the floor so they couldn't resell them.
I hasten to add that neither this shop nor the previous one were charity shops, they were private businesses.
I don't mind, in fact I am more than happy to support charity shops but the staff in warehouse-style second hand shops seem to have no concept of customer service.
A vinyl handbag in a cheerful shade of green.
A purple necklace.
And I couldn't resist photographing it on this gorgeous woven flax clutch I've had for years.
A cute tulip frame.
And this fabulous macramé book.
Of all the things you could make from macramé, why would you make a baby's jacket?
I've been doing a bit of soul-searching lately.
Deep questions like where is this blog going and what is its purpose?
Should each "episode" have a theme or should it be just what I've randomly found or photographed that week?
If you have any ideas, do let me know.
Today I attacked my spare room and afterward I think it looked even untidier than before.
But at least I found lots of things I'd forgotten I had.
Thanks for your support,
