:: Tupperware, Thrift finds, ...turning 37.
When you get to a certain age, people start inviting you to Tupperware parties, sadly I think I was the presenters nightmare as I didn't buy anything and regaled everyone with how good the retro stuff is and how cheap too!
This set was $10, I gave them to Mr Ouch for his tea's, flour (he bakes our bread) and muesli!
I know I've been busy with the macrame but I'm never to busy to catch up with Donna for a thrift session!
These were $3 each!
My Mum bought me this casserole dish for my birthday, I think it's by J&G Meakin, Habitat pattern C 1953. In my parents early marriage they had a set of plates with this pattern , which I still have. I'm very fond of this piece.
I couldn't resist this skillet, Turi Design called Daisy, Norway.
A Teak or black wood bowl?.....Now the entrance table has some semblance of order!
You get to a certain age where getting new house plants is the top of your birthday list, thanks Dad!
I can't wait to go pot shopping!!
This is what I bought for myself!
A pair of (Australian MC)Tessa Ottomans, lovely black leather, excellent knick!
Teak or Blackwood?
And It wouldn't be a post without macramé, new tri-colour piece, reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream.....yum!
I found a big bag of retro macrame beads!
So beads and macrame it is!
Being 37 is not so bad, three years on the good side of forty they say but I'm looking forward to what's ahead!
