Loveliness

Oh I could browse Etsy for hours (if I had the time). The vintage section is full of so much loveliness a shopper could do some serious damage to their credit card. Unfortunately (or maybe it's for the best) a lot of the items are not available for shipping to Australia and if they are, the items I love, such as housewares and kitchenware are way too expensive to post.

But there's no harm in doing a little window shopping, is there? Here are some of my favourite vintage items available right now!

Sigh...

On the bright side I received a beautiful package in the post a couple of days ago. Kate from I Love You Big held a lovely giveaway and I was a lucky winner! A word of warning, visit Kate's blog at your own peril, she features such lovely things she may lead you and your credit card astray. I hold her personally responsible for leading me to Etsy, Book Depository and Urban Outfitters ;-)



Look at all that stationery gorgeousness! I have lots of ideas on what I'm going to do with all this! Thanks again Kate :-) How cute are those gorgeous lace shapes, map circles and paper butterflies?

Speaking of butterflies, we witnessed one of nature's wonders in our very own garden a few days ago. A butterfly emerging from its cocoon. The boys were agog as was I...

And so, I am signing off for 2010. I hope you all have a very wonderful Christmas and I will see you again in the New Year :-)

What a beautiful post to end the year with. Looking forward to catching up over the summer break. I have a little present for your kitchen that I picked up at Gordon Vinnies for you. It had your name written all over it....
Happy Xmas to the D family from the F family.

What a great prize you won! And every one of those Etsy items makes me swoon :)

Kate said...

I'm so glad you liked it, Alice! It was my pleasure.

Ah, and etsy wandering - sometimes I think I should just quit my job and do that all day :)

Amazing prize package! I love the mod item with the graphic bull design best! I don't do any Etsy shopping. Too dangerous... :)
