Camberwell Market and IKEA today.
Lots of pictures today, isn't that nice? I love picture heavy posts the most. Anyway, I met up with some Brown Owls girls today at the Camberwell market and had a nice little shop. I spent way too much money, but got a lot of good things. So it's all worth it in the grand scheme of things I think. So, I was very adventurous and decided to drive today. That way I could pop over to IKEA afterwards. Clever right? And I only had to do 3 U-Turns! Now, let's make with the pictures.
A nice old radio, some pretty tins and a whimsical vintage KFC Bucket
Did you know that I love coloured glass? I have intentions of having a coloured glass collection, but apparently I have some expensive taste where that's concerned.
IKEA had some awesome wallpaper today.
I took this photo because it reminded me of Rebecca!
Do you remember these? I did them in primary school, you put the beads on a little peg board thing and then iron over them to make a little molded plastic thing. I've seen them made into some very cute pendants. I think the brand name is Perler Beads?
A really good tea cosie.
Some of my loot from the market and IKEA. The fabric on the left is to make a bag from the book, on the right is some excellent birdie fabric, a salt pig, some new canisters from the collection, some really cute IKEA animal fabric screaming to be appliqued, some wool for a pressie for my brother, some IKEA tea towels from embroidery and a cork board. Isn't just inspiring to see it all blank like that? Yes it is!
Another loot item. My mum said that this is what people used to wear in hospital when they were having babies. I said that it'd look totally cool over a white t-shirt and some skinny jeans.
Detail on the over shirt. It's really much prettier in real life.
Another shirt. This one's pajamas too. It's got some beautiful embroidery on it. I forgot to take a close up though!
Anyway, that was my busy, busy day. I was gone from 7.00 am until 2.00 pm. I think I'll be going to bed early tonight. Leave a comment and tell me what you did this weekend? I'll read them all and see which is the most interesting and then I'll send that person a little surprise present. Ok?! Fun.
