A selection of vintage treasures gleefully collected from various vintage summer sales. The bounty paid for from the sale of my work.  Hurray!


Foot tall, industrial letters with lovely patina…. X Y Z  ….Y not?


A bird cage, a vanity case and my new, old lunch box!


A storage box for my hardware.


A school atlas from 1878 discounted because it is grungy Bahaha!


Plan of Paris with pull out maps , YES!


A handful of labels…so lovely.

Sigh, time to go back to my other life of long hours at work and only stolen moments of art and junking…Sigh.

    • Well I got them at a stall at the Moss Street Paint In, this summer in Victoria…but you can get those letters at Trade Winds on Herald Street in Victoria, they are a bit expensive there but sometimes they come on sale. I love them but my husband was a tad taken aback when I arrived home with them hahahaha.

  1. Love all your treasures. Where did you end up using those fab letters? I just reno’d a vintage suitcase for a friend and wanted to link up with others who enjoy old ‘Stuff’. cheers.

    • Hi Boomdeeadda ( love the name) those letters are for wall art for my new industrial look kitchen renovation that hasn’t happened yet and just might be a figment of my imagination unless I can motivate a certain man in my life who renovates other peoples houses for a living but not ours LOL. how is that for a run on sentence!

      • HA, I hear that from other girls too. Hubbies get to their houses (or cars) last. Thank you for your kind reply. I’ve been blogging for almost two years and having a ball.
