fisher price airport vintage

or enjoy this super cute vintage Fisher Price airport I bought to distract the little people from my art glass, turns out it really moves the grown ups. Memories are priceless [aren’t they?] and linger long after the jet lag. Thank goodness.
See ya round.

Greece souvenir ashtray
Have you been to Santorini?
I want to go to there. © Daughter of Tina Fey.
It’s on my bucket list. I went travelling solo in my late 20s but I was not single and I never got to Greece.

Arhhhh… I so want to look at that unbelievably blue water with my own eyes, not out of a secondhand painted souvenir ashtray picked up thousands of miles away from point of origin but whatever…

I will make it one day, hopefully won’t be as a Shirley Valentine, talking to Walls, but for now I’ll just have to suck it up and enjoy the view, non smoking…
Or you can if you like. Grab this lovely piece here. It doesn’t have to take butts, repurpose for small bits and bobs. Coins, earrings, keys etc.
Chocolate Country cigarettes [called Fags when I was a kid, sooo very unPC] not included. Sorry. They gone. Me too. For now…

What is it about holidays that make you want to take more?

So much to say but just want to fall back into these pictures and sit quietly.

Have never understood how a downer came to be the blues.

Unless of course, you are leaving…

Lucky I had this to come home to. Sydney, you’re alright…

Come and say hi @ urban_rustic

Going on an o/s holiday. Yay. Things are on the up.

Had to pay off a lay-by before I went. Look what it was.

Suddenly globes everywhere…

Regret about a small globe I didn’t buy in Red Cross Avalon. Its base was quite ug and plasticy grey so I put it down, plus sometimes I have to show some restraint. Oddly and annoyingly I always skimp on something that later becomes a concept. I picked up one globe in the council throw outs recently, its base was ugly so I just kept the ball, its been rolling around the house. So has this inflatable one I got from a now non-existent shop.

Another favourite of my worldy goods, my very own global chain…
