So before things kind of went pear shaped in the past couple of weeks, with the loss of 2 dear friends & now my dicky heart causing me to be constantly horizontal, Mr P & I popped into the Woolloongabba Antique Center for a coffee & a sticky beak. My dear friend Jess popped in today with a meal & some delicious banana bread, & a little gift from the WAC. I had to smile when I opened it, only to find the lovely birdy salt & pepper shakers that I had photographed on my last visit (see below) but was yet to post. She knows me so well, & it was such a lovely & thoughtful surprise to brighten up another trying week. I'm off for a 24 hour heart test this week so we'll see if we can get to the bottom of this cardiac problem plaguing me at the moment! It's pretty funny that the thing I miss the most while being home bound is visiting my local op shops. Hopefully they'll be full of new treasures just waiting for my return.
Thanks to my dear friend Jen for the lovely flowers....and to Jess for the Japanese S&P shakers.
And now to our last visit to the WAC a few weeks back, & a coffee in the retro cafe.
A fantabulous little electric green clock for $65.
A vintage advertisment for little old Brisbane.
The vintage Chanel store.
Here are the birdy S&P shakers that I photographed a few weeks ago.
This one is for Miss C.....similar to your Mum's set?
I really have a thing for old clocks.
A board of brooches.
The wonderful Western Wac stall.
I'm very tempted by the Elcon fan. I love the pale blue colour.
Some anodised stuff.
A lovely array of frocks & goodies at the Miss Posh Poodle stall.
And a dumb waiter that reminded me of Kitty
And for those who got to the end of this post....I wore my vintage David Jones cotton dress with a little bolero & my Squirrel button necklace from Kellie Christie.
