Happy Australia Day

Happy Australia Day - Find and Dandy style.

I decided to share with you some favourite Aussie themed finds.

I have a thing for souvenir ware - these two are just the tip of the iceberg. This amazing wattle tin recently became mine via a street market in my home town. Lastly we wouldn't be Australian in spirit but for the toughness we develop against the many killer and just down right annoying insects we face daily, I found this book of Australian insects published in 1942 a few months back in a recycle centre.

Here's to all that's green, golden and found in the land down under.

Found Friday

The holiday specials.

I always enjoy myself on my country holidays visiting my family. It is always relaxing and fun. Beyond that though you can't beat a country op-shop.

Here is a little sample of some of my favourite finds while there

Alas being the christmas holidays my op-shopping days were limited, volunteers deserve holidays
more than most, so the haul was less than some other visits but there is always next time!

Found Friday

The first Found Friday for the year and while I have been on an Op-Shop adventure or two and have some treasures to share, most likely next week, I have for the most part been finding myself in nature and among family and friends here is a little insight via 10 shots of where I find myself right now. Happy holidaying, if like me you are lucky enough to still be indulging, or if you have returned to work yeah the weekend has found you again!
