holiday snaps & op shop/market finds

good morning!
as promised, i'm back with some holiday pics and finds from our week away.

flowers growing by the beach

finding teeny tiny crabs
blue skies as far as the eye can see

perfect temp for me!
rusty signage. yes we all love ourselves a little bit of that.
breathtaking sunsets that were so different every afternoon.
this was my fav :)
the view from our balcony taken with instagram
daily walks along the boardwalk

Kings Beach- around the corner from where we stayed

these cups were my 1st find and remind me of Rachel Ashwell.
50c each! oh, but they were having a 20% off sale, so 40c each lol!!
lovely vintage style picnic basket, star fish, teacup and saucers,
and a 50c cut glass napkin ring to add to my collection
another white double chenille bedspread, doilies
and vintage jars from Italy and France.

  1. Perfect place to holiday, i know! We visited my Nana in Maroochydore before we had Will, hadn't been since i was little, and i knew then we must do it again when we can. Love the colour in the little tea cups, and your market seller "discoveries" are gorgeous :) Love the watermelon piece best!
