Considering it was still the school holidays here last week, I managed to have a good thrifting week.

My favourite find of the year so far - this little Hornsea Studio Planter.  I love the slightly muted colours which seem to fit in well with most of my colour schemes, and the unusual texture, which manages to be both matt and glazed at the same time.

I was attracted to this bright original watercolour, maybe because it reminded me of some of my favourite places in Northern France.

After some Googling, I was surprised to find it's a view of the Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia.

I have a bit of a stationery problem.  I really love it, especially notebooks, but I can never bring myself to use them.  I don't know what I think I'm saving them for, but somehow my boring everyday scribbles don't seem worthy of such nice ones.

So, that's four more for the stash, then.

Hope everyone had a good week, looking forward to seeing everyones thrifting finds.

  1. Lovew your new notebooks! There's something about an brand new one - the possibilities are endless, but once I buy one, I usually can't think what to put in it!

  2. I'm exactly the same with notebooks, I have loads of nice ones but keep writing in some bog standard plastic covered WHSmiths one!

    Nice finds, I like the planter, it goes with your blog background.

    Happy New Year!

  3. It's nice to know I'm not alone with the notebook thing - maybe we need to start a "Blank pages - blank minds" support group.
    @Lakota - I think my NY resolution should be to co-ordinate my tat and my blog more often.
    Happy New Year to you both!

  4. I would use those cute, cute notebooks! If you don't want to write in them, tape recipes in them, photos, little scraps of wisdom. Tell your story!
