thrifting & gifting

My first Johnson cake stand, found during last weekends trip to Sydney, and yes it was still in its box.

A spot of Fire King ware, 50c

And some lovely gifts were both given and received...

twas our 5 year anniversary
(by the way this perfume smells absolutely divine).

First week down in my new workplace as well and I survived. The staff are lovely and helpful and I'm slowly learning my way around.

I've got a couple of days off now. A bit more sewing to do (with the possibility of an exciting new venture in store. I don't want to get too excited yet but I've got my fingers and toes crossed), and tomorrow a bit of op-shopping is on the agenda.



  1. WOW! ...still in the box...WOW!!

  2. Lovely things as always Zara...the cake stand in the box is very special! Happy anniversary too! I found a whole bag of Little Golden Books this week for $2.50 and thought of you :)

  3. Happy five year anniversary.
    The Johnson cake stand is a perfect find for you. I also found a 3 Little Golden books at my thrift shop yesterday and I thought of you as well.
    Glad you have settled well into your new job. :)

  4. Johnson's still int he box! I did not know such treasures existed!!!

  5. such delights! enjoy your days off :)

  6. great finds as always zara..and happy anniversary..

  7. What a lovely Johnson plate! How adorable is the lime green Fire King bowl - hard to find that colour now.

    Don't keep us in suspense too long (re possible new venture), prolonged suspense is not good for my BP!!

    Enjoy your days off, Zara, I hope you have lots of sunshine and some thrilling finds as you venture around the Op Shops.

  8. .. and congratulations on your 5 years together. x
