Bits and Bobs



I came across the thrifter's holy grail recently...I found a vintage quilt in an op-shop! I could hardly believe my eyes...and it was only eight dollars. I have since given it a good wash and an air-out and it is now gracing our previously very dull beige couch (the little orange dragon is also a recent op-shop win - she's made of felt and her name is Doris). The couch looks especially lovely under the window in the Spring sunshine!

In other news, I have been...

  • Falling in love with A.S. Byatt's books - first up Ragnarok
  • Making chocolate fudge 
  • Loving the re-runs of Doctor Who on ABC-2

What's news with you?

it's so gorgeous, such soft colours you must be stoked!

Feronia said...

Totally stoked, Max. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it and then when the lady in the op-shop casually said "Oh, that's $8'...!!!

My, this looks so cozy. You were really lucky to get it. ^^

It has really cozied up the couch, Sefarina. It's a nice little corner of the room now :)
