Well Sydney has been putting on some stunning Winter sunshine of late, it inspired me to get my vintage on yesterday. The floors needed a mopping, clothes needed a folding but the pull of some vintage treasure hunting won out!
Here's what I found....
Some crocheted lovelies, always love some nana crochet. Especially in fun colours. I think yellow was the theme of the day, I don't normally go for yellow... but may be Olympic gold fever was rubbing off on me.
A perfect and I mean just out of the box cake platter, Donna Hay no less, not that I needed another cake pedestal, but how could I pass it up?
A small Le Creuset baking dish in colour de jour... yellow!
A book, Italian Joy... have you read this? It looks to me a similar genre to Eat Pray Love. Here it is below with dust jacket on...
This guy didn't come home with me but I love how bright and sunny it is. Hello Yellow :D
And what may be my fav find today. A cool vintage silk screen.
I think it's art. It may not be everyone's cuppa tea, (I can imagine what hubby will say when he spies it, mind you this could take a while. Sorry honey ;) but for me art is; something that is pleasing to the beholder (check), something original (check) and something that makes me happy (check).
This guy first reeled me in with its colour... turquoise and green perfection, say no more. I love the simple rustic frame and the whimsical randomness of the print. It cost me $4.
I picked up the silver gravy boat recently too, I have a little collection of them. I popped some shells into this one... willing on Summer!
So that was my Vintage day.
Have you found any treasures lately? What's your definition of art?
Happy Vintage Days :)
