Over the school holidays The Boy and I found ourselves with a few hours to burn while The Little Miss attended a school holiday art workshop. On the drive over, to a part of Brisbane I rarely visit, I noticed a large Lifeline store near by so we returned to lose ourselves there for a good hour (or was that two...)
I have been on the hunt for a set of kitchen canisters for many years now. I have found a few sets I have loved at my local antique centre, but have not loved the price tag, so the op shop hunt continued. That is until I spied these girls:
My kitchen is largely white with black accents and the occasional pop of colour, so these are absolutely perfect. And at $14 for the set, these girls were definitely coming home with me.
I also found this intriguing old case, which upon opening, unearthed a treasure trove of vintage knitting needles (pictured behind) and some spools of mercerised thread.
Not pictured are the most perfectly fitting pair of Jag Jeans (all of $2), and an old navy suitcase to join my little bedroom stack, and, ah, a Transformer (well, one does have to amuse The Boy somehow while hunting for treasure...)
