Old stuff, new stuff...

I thought I'd update on a few of the accessories we have around the place.

Another new internet purchase turned up last week - this fabulous retro jug! I have no idea what make it is, but it looks to be 1970s. Currently it resides on our replica Saarinen tulip dining table. I think it would look great with some nice long-stemmed flowers in it (hint hint John).
In the kitchen, I've decided to keep my Nanna's old GE crock cooker out of the cupboard after using it for a yummy casserole last weekend. I've also never put up a photo of John's Care Bear cookie jar, which sits next to his Grandma's mint green c.1957 Sunbeam mixmaster.My growing pile of home decorating magazines was getting out of control, so last week when we were at Ikea I bought a couple of packs of Kassett magazine boxes. Three of them have ended up under the TV bench, where they do a great job of hiding all the extension cords and power boards. Why are power points never where you want them?!And, finally, a few things have moved around this week. Fiona's drawing has moved from the hall to the living area, where it's now on show next to the bookcases. The Artin flip clock has also moved, as the 'flipping' was just a little too distracting in the bedroom! At the moment it's on top of some magazines in the bottom of the display cabinet in the dining area, but it might find a better home in the study once I get to decorating that.


  1. SWEET PAD TIMMO! And I'm very happy you have now decided I am Lounge Room worthy!

  2. Well Bexta's Hawaiian postcards claimed the hallway space, and I couldn't put you in the toilet - the colours would clash!
