Treasured Finds; Some Things to Share

Its been a while since I posted my treasured finds; to be fair I have not been searching or buying a lot lately, but I do have a few photos to share with you. I decided that this year I would only buy things that I either collect, or can't live without (or for the caravan). I've left a few pieces behind this year already!

I hope you all enjoy a fun filled weekend. We are heading to the coast to sort out our newest purchase, caravan #2. The kids are itching to go to the beach as they haven't been there in years. I will catch up with you all in a few days. Tam x

1960's tin moon globe and silver plated footed bowl from the Canberra Swap Meet Nov 2012

Hubodometer...I know what you're thinking...awesome right? haha

Two tiny miniature oil paintings for the dolls house

Original Kookaburra painting, c1920's, found amongst the rubbish at the tip shop

I asked the seller of the clock if it worked or if the ballerina danced. She said no to both, so she reduced the price. I was pleasantly surprised when I got home that the clock does work and the ballerina dances when you lift the dome. She is c1940's, made in West Germany.

Picked up this gorgeous tile at the annual Church sale for $2.

love the tile. I have decided this year to look out for some vintage tiles to make up in a frame for the garden wall.

As always your vintage finds are fantastic, lovin' the moon globe and the ballerina clock and how awesome that it's decided to work for YOU Tam. What on earth's a hubodometer by the way, l wondered if it was something Elizabeth Taylor might have, you know to count the hubbies...hehe!!
