after a bit of a lull, i’ve been finding some excellent things in the cardiff charity shops lately. when i have a bit more money i’d like to explore some more in wales. and bristol obviously. any bristol readers? let me know of all the good charity shops! i know of the ones in the gloucester rd area, but that’s about it.
one of my favourite finds (another below) has been this leafy brooch. i’ve been looking for one like this for an absolute age. i found other leaf/branch type ones, but they just weren’t quite what i was looking for. then, when i’d almost given up thinking i’d find what i was looking for i decided to pop into my favourite charity shop, and what did i see? thank you brooch fate!
i’ve been looking for a nice, oversized sleeveless top for a while, and recently found this cute heart patterned one. perfect for summer, and thanks to it having a collar, it will be great under a jumper in colder climes too.
onto my second favourite find, this wicker bag! i LOVE IT. i have been looking for one for years, but being typical laura, was super picky with what i wanted. it’s perfect and i’ve used it almost every day since i’ve gotten it. kind of helps that it always gets compliments too ;)
ahh, this cup! honestly, i bought it on a whim because i thought it just looked wonderful (love the ripe banana-esque markings) and partly just because it’s yellow, ha. wish there was another to go with it, but happy to even have this one. anyone else find themselves buying cups ‘just because’?
basically i love illustrated children’s books, and i have a real soft spot for miffy. too much cute! can’t believe this was only 15p. always on the look out for lovely illustrated books. i don’t plan to have children, but i’ll let you know now i have quite the collection of kids books. as an illustrator it’s research, right?
this scarf was also a bit of a whim purchase. but florals, birds, and turquoise – how could i not?
aaaand finally a vintage top and a heart patterned dress (which i’ve been constantly wearing). i’ve definitely been drawn to small, cute heart patterns lately. i feel a new pattern in the works…
