We are in the midst of a heatwave. It's no lovely, warm summery thing - it's an apocalyptic nightmare of bushfires and heat stroke and extreme weather warnings. Such fun.
The only possible thing to do in a time like this is to go op shopping. Virginia and I had a lovely day - we both picked up some delightful treasures...
Some lovely vintage china, another vintage camera and case for my collection and a fabularse 1970s leather coat. A heat wave is the perfect time to buy winter coats - they are super cheap! Also picked up a couple of vintage frocks, which are currently in the wash as they reeeeek of moth balls.
My favourite treasure of the day, however...
Is this DIVINE red velvet sofa in exquisite condition. Virginia and I both fell madly in love with it, naturally. I have no idea of the age - any suggestions? It has lovely heavy casters and the cushions are very solid and heavy (horse hair?).
The darling op shop man piped up that he thought the sofa had been donated by a local brothel. Of course, that only made me want it more. So now it's mine.
Kitchy kitchy ya ya da da!
I can promise that there will be many ridiculous photo shoots on that old whore of a sofa.
And speaking of old whores...
Here's me faffing about in the storm water drain in my new 1970s gingham sqaure dancing dress. Normal.
