my thrifty find of the month!
Master M: What is it?
Me: It's a type writer, we used to use it to type letters on before we had computers.
Master M: Is it a computer?
Me: No before we had computers we used a typewriter to type letters.
Master M: Oh. Look Mum it is getting stuck.
Me: Yes, you can only press one letter at a time.
Master M: Oh. What does this say 'kjfjiueoonuug'.
Master M: Ha ha ha. What does this say 'ipopikl'
Master M: Ha ha ha. Mum what does...
Hmm, this old thing might be a bit educational, I think that justifies going back and getting the old Olivetti one I also saw stashed in the old lady's shed. Yeah!
Linking for Flea Market Finds at Her Library Adventures.
I seem to be getting into a bit of a habit lately on my way to work. There is an op shop that I have been popping into now and again. Well actually probably once a week (I only work two days a week). I picked up a few things last week that I will have to post here soon. One thing I have actually photographed is this Snowflake dish ($6). One lady picked up a SylvaC green bunny figurine for $5 that was ready to go out on the shelf. She beat my by about 10 seconds the lucky lady!
I received a parcel in the mail this week from Kylie at Lucy Violet Vintage who was giving away these vintage Adelaide souvenirs. Look how they came to me, all wrapped up in a vintage 1979 tea towel. I think this is pretty cool as I only have one other vintage tea towel I have is one that was left at my house that nobody is owning up to. I am pretty sure it's my Mums but she swears it's not. Her loss!
In other news...I stuck my head out of our extension door the other day to show the electricians where the other entrance is. About a two metres behind them was this little fluff ball sitting in the tree. 'Hey, look behind you'! The electricians were so excited and were like tourists snapping pics with their phones. The koala got a little huffy and climbed up the tree however I found him sitting in the same spot later in the day. This is the closest I have ever seen him. He is posing for me in this picture.
Lets give him a little bit of Christmas spirit!
Hee hee, sorry, couldn't help myself!
I haven't seen him for a while which is fine as he had been keeping me awake at night. I never knew koalas are so noisy!
