Are you having the best week ever?? I hope you are!
I know that I have had a whinge about Australia Post lately... but the truth is that I LOVE my postie!! and I LOVE the treasures that he leaves on my doorstep. It is always one of the highlights of my day...
This week I have been especially excited by what I have discovered on my welcome mat!!
Firstly! an amazing pair of vintage yellow sheets - A GIFT! - from the very outrageous and fantastic Tamarah from Shabby Vintage Junk!! What a sweetheart - kisses to you, miss Tamarah, mwah!
the MOST AMAZING bundle of precious vintage feedsack squares, that I ordered via Etsy!!
I can't wait to make something with them.
Bark cloth!! My new obsession! I have a growing stash to inspire me...
AND... a magical little pile of vintage floral ephemera! Lucky me!
PLUS!! a new book.
Etc; by Sibella Court.
To be honest, I find her style too messy and haphazard for my own tastes, but the book is simply a treasure in its own right.
The book seems to capture moments and glimpses, rather than the big picture, and I love her focus on collecting and cataloguing, her use of colour and the way she invites natural curiosities into every corner of her home.
And to make my day even brighter - my small person came home from daycare with a technicolour crown. It is sensational!
Sadly, however, my rag rug is FALLING TO PIECES! Shit! It has taken me so so long to get it to the size of a doormat but the center has stretched and warped, so that it sort of resembles a sombrero. All is not lost! I am going to clip the strings that are holding it together and start again.
