Tassie Blackwood Apple, Arabia Finland Jam Pot, English Egg cup.

Biltons side plate, Staf UK.

Midwinter Moon plate, UK.

Ridgway Roselands, lidded dish,  UK.

Amber glass apple dish.
These are my recent finds, all from the Frankston area, in op shops, thrift shops and side of the road garage sales...but the winner is the Arabia Finland Jam Pot, $1.00.
I'm not always this lucky but the thrift gods were on my side.

What's been your best find recently?

I saw the great work of Ann Wood and I was so inspired to create my own boat, for the small ones bedroom. 
It was so much fun, I think, I will have to do some more.......

Sedium-Donkey's Tail.
I love the old adage, bring the outside in, so these are my latest additions.
Succulents and Air plants are so easy to care for and the architectural forms appeal to my mid century aesthetic!
......And who doesn't like green?
Air plants on drift wood and succulents in chemistry vials.

 Today I played like a stylist and set up some shots to enter into a competition in an interior design magazine.

 It was loads of fun and an excuse to clean the house....

Love my new Rob Ryan plates!
