Jumble Jumble

Lewes in East Sussex has more antique and bric-a-brac stores than it knows what to do with. And yet there must be enough demand that they're able to charge what they do; while a couple of them were reasonably priced, most were outrageous. Hence, bar a bow tie I found in a charity store, it was all look and no touch. And a fair bit of picture taking.


This little family however, were the ultimate find. Tooooot!


On another, entirely seperate note, I don't know whether it's 'cause I'm missing Australia and therefore am unwittingly attracted to all things lumberjack, or whether this frickin' cold weather is finally getting to me, but I'm craving a pair of denim overalls. Hard. All I want to do is skip through blooming poppy fields in denim overalls, a white lace top and with a super sized white bow atop my head. And these? I'm pretty sure these materialised from my deepest, darkest dreams. Okay, maybe less darkness and more flowers and white fluffy clouds, but you get the idea. Check out the rest of the website. There are some equally worthy pieces of heaven, including this deliciously '80s dress. Best part is, it's all wholesale clothing at wholesale prices. Much better value than Lewes antique stores, that's for sure.

I have a great Aunty who lives somewhere in Central NSW (who i've only met once when i was 8) who has a collection of thousands of ornamental owls, much like the ones you've posted. She's in her 80's and asked if i'd like to inherit them whenshe dies. Of course i said yes (even though I have a fear of birds), but what am I going to do with several thousand of them?

I would never leave
Really, never. My friends would be like "time to go!" and I'd be sitting on the floor in the corner staring down strcutured leather bags and old fake flowers.... I am so envious.

I love your owls! Cute

Kind comments are nice. Kind comments from awesome bloggers like yourselves is even better. Thanks. Mary: I dragged my boyfriend there twice in the three hours that we were there. He certainly had a difficult time dragging me away. Pipsqueak: I totally thought he was a skull, not an owl. But the combination of these two things now makes him a billion times cooler. Nina: I'm glad! No, not from there, only a bowtie from an charity shop nearby. And Fashion Dialogue: I've just turned green. I'm that jealous. I think you should make an owl pyramid. That would blow my mind.
