Now that the epic FOSSIC series is finished, I've been going through some old photos.
I realised how much I haven't featured in my blog yet.
So here's a blast from the past (way back in January).
A photo of my great-grandparents, and my great-aunt, in a reproduction frame.
A Bovril pin dish, probably a repro from the 70s.
Glass paperweight, advertising pianos, bought at auction.
Studio Meakin Florence sugar bowl from the Mosgiel Salvos.
I use this bowl all the time and I wish I had more from this set.
Pink roses, on a crown Lynn plate, a coffee pot and coffee mug.
Anemone print, from the Queenstown Salvos.
Portmeirion canister, from Queenstown Salvos.
Irish Mist decanter, from an antique shop which used to be in the Octagon.
Set of coloured glass dessert bowls, from the Invercargill Hospice shop.
Mirrored tray, had it for ages.
I love these whimsical ceramics from the 1950s.
The jug reminds me of the print on my cotton dress which I wore when I met Helga.
Dancing vegetables and sausage - pure gold!
Are they going to eat the meat being barbecued in the background?
A decanter and glasses from the Invercargill hospice shop.
Today was the South Dunedin market day so I dropped in to have a look.
It wasn't terribly exciting, unless you're a kid who's into bouncy castles, so took refuge in my favourite shop in South D, a tiny antique shop.
I love that shop, Brian always has some Crown Lynn, but I didn't buy any CL this time (no room for any more dinner sets).
I did get some Hornsea, Midwinter, Royal Doulton, an Italian lava vase, some fake pearls and a wall plaque, all for $30.
Then I went to the Hospice shop and got some table linen to die for, for $9.
Now I won't be able to buy any food for 4 days.
Pix coming soon!
