Slime and snails and puppy dog tails
So a few nice things happened last weekend. Being a completely free agent, I headed straight out to explore some new op-shops and try my luck on the other side of the bridge.
I did get this great little floral arrangement behind a glass bubble complete with beautiful forest green velvet ribbon (no idea what they call these, but I love them!) which I’m most pleased with and added straight to my wall.
It fit in nicely alongside this other one I got a few weeks back from my favourite antique shop in Newtown.
Now, although I must admit I was pleasantly surprised by the op-shops on the North side on Sydney (I really didn’t have high hopes), I did get my favourite Karen Walker sunglasses stolen from the change room, WHILE I WAS IN IT. So I remain pessimistic about the whole thing. And there was also a certain Salvos that advertised itself as “Sydney’s finest op-shop” which was full of absolute CRAP. I mean, worse than crap. Beyond crap. Not even bad 80′s crap. So, yeah. I won’t being going back to that one :)
I also caught up with some friends and therefore had an opportunity to bake (or more importantly, someone to eat the baking)! These are vanilla with strawberry jam centres. And, seeing as I’m still trying to plough through the pile of limes I got from Lynds and Ben’s lime tree a week or so ago, I made lime icing which was nice and zingy!
And I got to meet “Inches”! I must say he’s possibly the cutest puppy I’ve ever met. He’s an italian greyhound incase you’re wondering and his big brother “Miles” is a standard Greyhound.
