The lengths a treasure hunter will go to are ridiculous sometimes! πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ I’ve been looking for more cases like the white one that I revived a few weeks back. They seem to be as rare as hens teeth or crazy expensive when you do find one. Anyway, yesterday I was driving along a 4 laned main road and there it was! In a paddock, just lying there... so I had to do a u turn up further, then drive all the way back and past it to safely do another u turn to get back to where it was. A bloke on a bicycle was going thru it’s contents! 🀬 Long story short, it took me three lots of u turns, an illegal park and then I had to search for it because Mr Bike Rider had moved it, but finally it was mine!!!! Crazy? Yep, but I think worth it. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œ #treasurehunting #theuniversewaslistening #roadsidejunk #inperfectcondition #worththepalava #willlookgreat #luckyfind

A mid century, anodised aluminium urn which was literally on the scrap heap. Dented, crooked, peeling and faded, it had been discarded as rubbish. Rescued, revived and not looking too bad at all, even if it does look like a giant egg cup! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚ #chalkpainted #chalkpainteddecor #chalkpaintedhomewares #vintage #retro #midcenturymodern #anodisedaluminiumplanter #urn #gianteggcup #foundonthescrapheap #rescued #revive #reuse #recycle #reduce #refinish #renew #repurpose #upcycle #papertransfers #modpodge #junk #ilovejunk #upcycledjunk ♻️

An exhausted and very wet little pup. Today she discovered garden sprinklers in the morning and heavy rain in the afternoon. Seems this pup loves water. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ β›ˆ #eastermondayholiday #lazydayinthegarden #sunshineinthemorning #stormintheafternoon #ourpuppy #pomapoo #crazydog #loveswater

Yesterday we went to a market before heading off for an Easter picnic. Lots there, sadly crazy $$$, but I did come away with 5 of these Rodd spoons for $10. I have the matching cake forks, they are so pretty, love the scalloped edge of the spoon. Only 5 of them but perhaps I’ll find some more in my travels... πŸ–€πŸ΄ #vintage #vintagestyle #vintagedecor #vintagespoons #rodd #silverplatedspoons #roddjasmine #pretty #eastermarket #thingsilove #oldworldcharm

Happy Easter! πŸ£πŸ‡πŸ₯š I’m onto my second coffee, hubby is kicking back with the newspapers, the chocolate eggs have been hidden in the garden, no doubt melting in this glorious sunshine, and my two grown up egg hunters are still fast asleep and will probably not rise for at least another hour....some traditions just aren’t allowed to die. πŸ˜‰

Tres magnifique! 🧑 Spotted this stunning orange bloom in a rose garden this morning. No filters, just Mother Nature and sunshine working their magic together.β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ #magnificent #naturesfinest #naturalbeauty #orangerose #rosegarden #purecolour #autumngardens #simplepleasures #thingsilove

Good Friday, a rather slothful day in our household.🐟 A grocery shop was done yesterday with at least half of the city’s population lining up outside of the market fish and fruit shops, well maybe not that many people but there were a lot!πŸ˜‰ And today we will eat all that we bought, ready to hit the shops again tomorrow. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Happy Easter 🐣 #goodfriday #easterbreak2019

And the IOD transfers just go on and on... expensive to buy but you get quite a bit of bang for your buck with one roll going a very long way... This old flower pail looks very welcoming πŸ˜‰ in its new skin. Whilst I do like these I think I prefer paper transfers, not so perfectly imperfect. πŸ˜‰βšœοΈ #chalkpainted #chalkpainteddecor #chalkpaintedhomewares #vintage #vintagestyle #vintagedecor #vintageflowerpail #junkshopfind #ilovejunk #upcycledjunk #iodtransfers #frenchfloraltransfer #welcome #revive #reuse #recycle #reduce #refinish #renew #restore #repaint #repurpose #upcycle #thingsilove

Our Big Daddy magpie πŸ–€ very curious about my phone and the noise it was making whilst taking his pic this morning. #magpie #tamebirds #daddymagpie #alwayshere #curious #magpiesofinstagram #personalityplus

Old, brown school port no more... πŸŒΈπŸ’™ A good opportunity to use some of the IOD transfers that I have had tucked away for a rainy day, which it’s not.☺️ The previous owner from Cabramatta NSW, whose address was written on the inside label, would never recognise their old school bag now! πŸ˜‰ #chalkpainted #chalkpainteddecor #vintage #vintagedecor #vintagestyle #vintageschoolbag #shabby #frenchthemed #iodtransfers #drabtofab #prettymakeover #revive #reuse #recycle #reduce #refinish #renew #restore #repaint #repurpose #upcycle #funtodo #thingsilove
