This past Saturday after a delicious homemade breakfast of eggs on toast, we set off to run a few errands, and ended up op shopping our way around Mt Eden and all the way out to New Lynn. We didn't come across the New Lynn Savemart which had netted an excellent bounty for a friend, but we collected a lot along the way regardless.
At the Sallies on Dominion road, I got this glass jar. I hope it'll make a good candy container for the sweets we've been whipping up from the Frankie Cookbook Sweet Treats.

I'm planning on painting this letterhold I also found at the Sallies. Perhaps creme or mint?

At the Hospice shop in Mt Eden I found this VHS of Talking Heads 'Stop Making Sense', which is one of the best music movies ever in my opinion. The first time I watched it I couldn't drag my eyes away!

So I bought a big bed and a small computer. Now I can blog in bed.
I decided to use my biscuit tin to store my sewing supplies. It's surely the silliest design I've seen on a tin, the inscription reads "The Pioneer".
Check out these books I got a few weeks back. They're little instructional guides to sports.

This past weekend, I took a day off work and we headed to the beach with a group of Nicks friends. His parents bach at Onemana sits high on the cliff overlooking the ocean and at only 6kms from Whangamata, it is not too far from civilisation. So on Saturday we headed into town to browse the op shops. At the first, the church shop by the gas station, I got this gold t-shirt and some bed sheets.

I'm thinking I might wear the top with a long black skirt, perhaps I maxi if I can thrift one (or make if I get desperate). The sheets will hopefully fit my new double bed, which I am yet to purchase. *sigh*.
On the way out of town is Whangamata Traders, a store jam packed with every kind of homeware and includes a selection of furniture and clothing. I got a loaf tin for $4 but I'm yet to use it. Perhaps a lemon loaf will be suitable.

Recent non-posting is due to several factors; the death of my 2001 Toshiba laptop, moving three houses down and exams. On the bright side, our new house is fantastic, I think I did alright in my exams and I've started saving for a new computer.

The move encouraged me to part with some of my not-so-favourite clothes, and a few bits of junk. Once I'd unpacked everything, including boxes that I'd left packed from the previous move, I found my collection of books, cassette tapes and VHS. Since then I've been on the lookout for a suitable bookcase to neatly house them.

So far on the internet, I'm in love with this woodern bookcase. Small and simple.
But I could go for a cabinet.
Or even just cubes.Photos:Designsponge
