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!
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 :-)
