I managed to squeeze in a quick visit to my local op shop today, and the unbelievable happened – I actually found exactly what I was looking for! And not just on one count, but two; I went looking for framed pictures and lamps, and found... a lovely, really big picture, and a lovely tall lamp, complete with the perfect shade of (har har) shade. Score! I have been looking for pictures and lamps for eons, but I don't find them very often. Sometimes, pictures, yes, but I can count them on one hand, but never, ever lamps. So. Hooray. We pick up the lamp tomorrow morning (it's too unwieldy for me to stagger about with, as it's about 6 feet high) and if the deco trunk I spied today is still there, that might just be coming home with us too.
I also found two perfect blouses (I had these two colours in mind – mustard and olive green – and bingo!) and a nice dark green velvet winter coat – with a hood! and duffel toggles! and a fluffy fluff thing lining the hood! Thanks, op shop gods, nice work... I am a happy lady. I hope your Fridays are treating you well, too.
Tomorrow I am having a day trip with the beloved betrothed and I promise to take pics – and I am sure there will be an outfit post in there, too :) Oh, and I am having a super fantastic give away soon soon sooooon... watch this space! xxx
