Vintage Plate

Vintage Treasures

I had a much needed day off today and loved every minute of it. I lazed in bed and was treated to breakfast cooked by Ethan! He whipped up the best half-cooked crumpets sans butter I have ever had. My little boy truly amazed me today.

This afternoon we ran some errands while Dash was at the groomer and ended up spending an hour exploring the most amazing vintage shop ever.
I picked out {just} three things;
1. E and I were rummaging through a tray of trinkets and I found my late Dads high school pin! I couldn’t believe it, such a special find.

2. Choosing a plate to bring home out of the hundreds in the store was tough but I spotted this wee gem as I was sitting on the floor taking everything in {there are piles of things at every level, it’s a store you cannot breeze through!}

3. The last pieces I bought are a gift so I will save those for a later post : )

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Where was the shop M? I'd love to find a big shop or even better a market that I can get lost in for a little while.
    Looking for some place thats a good backdrop for some photos too.

  2. Hi ladies! Welcome back Tara! Junk and Disorderly would be the spot to take pics for sure, it's BIG and almost market like – Birkenhead. My little fave shop is in Huapai – can't remember the name (sorry) but it's on the State Highway in the next block of shops west from the Westpac Bank. It's a teeny shop packed to the rafters, but mucho goodness!
