A recent addition to the furniture around here is this cute, distressed (but in a good way!) little children's chair. It made a proper appearance in this post and will probably be a regular feature on the blog:
It wasn't exactly a steal but not over-the-top expensive either. The cute elephant ceramic thingumy-jig (I think it's a planter of some sort as it's got a hole in the bottom) was definitely a steal. One dollar and fifty cents, to be precise, at the St Vinnies sale (yes, even St Vinnies have sales!).
And the best vintage finds, of course. are the ones that are free. I found a whole boxful of these "Lakeland" brand pencils (which I think are from the 70's) at my Mum's. They were from a set we had as kids, are in perfect condition and in colours that you just wouldn't get now days. Bliss.
