I bought a little bit of black lace from the haberdashery store (one of my FAVOURITE words) and fashioned it into a Prada-style headband. I have since seen the big, fat crochet ones available at Sportsgirl, but I'm not sure I want to replicate the EXACT look. Mind, the black is a little hard to see on black hair. I may try another in a lighter colour.

We used to fill this with lollies. I kept eating them. We don't anymore.
I am head over heels for melamine.
The other half has a better eye for vintage homewares than I do. All this stuff is thrifted.
Old tin with the cutest pattern ever.
Vintage, Italian picnic set. The bottom contains bowls,
dinner plates and bread & butter plates.
Weird and ridiculous - but I love them.

I have to make mention about some awesome customer service I recieved this week. I often shop online at Trashy Diva. I ordered a dress from from them late December, by late January when it still hadn't arrived, I became quite cranky. I fired off an email and was answered by the delightful Robyn. It appears there was some type of Paypal hitch and the dress I had ordered had now sold out. :( Robyn cheerfully offered me a dress that was double the price to make up for the mishap. Now if that aint A1 customer service, I don't know what is! I remain a (thrilled and) loyal customer. :)

Aren't my measuring cups just darling?
3/4 cup of plain flour.
Eggs fresh from the chooks' bums.
Love it when they have straw, feathers and poo on them.
Tablespoons and teaspoons.
Recently, I bought some quaint vintage plates from
opshops to serve my homemeade sweeties on.
Nom, nom, nom. Lamingtons for all. I 'm taking these in for the guys at work tomorrow. :)
The day after. :)
