Reasons to be cheerful

Just a quick wrap up of what’s made me smile this week.

Vintage earrings for a few dollars each, from Oakleigh Market last Sunday. I only found out about the market very recently from a fashionista who knows all sorts of style secrets. She didn’t tell me about the DELICIOUS deep fried Greek donuts at the market, but I managed to find them myself 🙂

Material that looks hand painted, also from the Oakleigh Market. I couldn’t decide if it was ridiculously over the top, but then I remembered how much I love stuff that’s ridiculously over the top. It reminds me of the Prada collection a few seasons ago and the Mexican story I posted about recently. I can’t wait to stitch it up into something for summer.

Woven straw clutch that I found at the Salvos in Forest Hill, $4. So colourful!

And last, but not least, this little guy, who came to me all the way from the offices of Peppermint as a sort of commemorative gift after a successful Trivia for Tigers night. And no, they don’t send everyone something like this after they run a fund-raiser, but I’m one of their main writers, so they made an exception!

I was very happy to receive the package with this sweetie in it because I’d seen him at the Oxfam shop but resisted the urge to bring him home with me. Isn’t it lucky he managed to find me anyway!
And now, tell me, what new discoveries have made you smile lately?
