a special case
For little while now, I have been collecting cases – from big 1960s suit cases to little vanity cases. They are perfect for storing things, and I like them stacked up against a wall. They mostly come from op shops, and I recently found another to add on top to a few of them.
I was pretty chuffed to find this cute little case. In great condition. It had keys! I knew it was going to come home with me. But before it went in my trolley (what can I say?! this is one good op shop!) I had a look inside...
...okay, nice, pristine condition (which is rare, at least for me) pale pink lining, some cute little bottles still there and all good, but... why so heavy?
I have been looking for one of these for so long. Now I can relax (or do my household chores; don't want to be neglecting those, now, do we?!) as I dry my pin curls – scientifically, no less. This hairdryer does actually work really well, and the plugged in cap gives me a comedy mushroom head to boot. So while I don't think I will putting Babycat in there after her shampooings (the leaflet suggests drying pets in it) I will be using it when the cold weather rolls around again next year. This is definitely one of my all time favourite op shop finds – which reminds me: don't forget to enter the op shop tour give away!
