Coming home

Friday, 29 June 2012

Since coming back from the UK about a week ago, I've been a busy bee finding spots for all the fabulous finds that made it back with me.

Like this one.

A Roberts R24 radio from the early 1980s. By appointment of her Majesty the Queen ! 
I figured if it's good enough for the royals, it's surely good enough for me. And anyway, I've never been known to resist anything in a wooden casing.

I gave it the place of honour on my newly (re)installed bedside shelves. Together with a cute little WGP planter I brought back from a recent trip to Germany (50 cents it cost me. Yeah!) and a pile of books I'm planning to read and which are also cleverly hiding the 5 m of cord that came with my little radio.

Speaking of hiding a mess. Now I need to deal with less sexy things. Like making the electric extension less conspicuous, or painting over those white infills where the Tomado shelves used to be. Pfffffff, suddenly I feel less motivated.

UK Holiday continued

Wednesday, 13 June 2012

While the weather gods continue to be against me (in what must be the worst British summer ever), the thrift gods however have been smiling on me.

Look at that vintage haul from the Topsham Quay Anitques Centre !
I maxed out my credit card and actually had to leave some goodies behind. Including a fantastic Poole pottery Delphi plate, but at 48 £ I could just not rationalise buying it. As it is, I'm already condemned to eating rice & onions for the rest of the month. Again.

Still, here's a big "Hip Hip Hooraaaaaahhhhh" for indoors activities.

Sea, Sex & Sun

Sunday, 10 June 2012

Hmmm, or not...  Besides the sea part, my UK holiday has rather been abstinence & rain.

And lots of umbrella drinks !
Back to normal blogging business next week. In the meantime, you can follow my random web findings and ramblings on Pinterest - right here. Let me give you a hint, chastity is not involved.

How many...

... Jason Munn posters can one decently own and still lust for more ? Want, want, want, want !
