Shopping Five





This isn't a typical shopping entry from me, nothing cute or fancy, just three photos to sum up my day. :)

I went thrifting with Bunny at my local Vinnies. I found nothing as usual, but I did spot this lovely odd couple seated near the door. When Bunny and I saw it, we immediately thought hey that's us!! It was like fate, and we spent a good five minutes standing in front of the two toys giggling away like little children and taking photos. 

Thereafter we went to Bunnings to source for some lighting equipment I needed for the little online shop I am starting with my friend. I LOVE BUNNINGS. I have been their biggest fan since my sister brought me to one of their warehouses in Perth so many years ago. 

I always dawdle my way from one end to another and I love buying weird odds and ends to satisfy my inner deprived creative self. I still remember this one time I wanted to buy flower pots so I could have a charming row of flowers on my windowsill. The idea was quickly squashed... since I am quite the opposite of having green thumbs!

As we made our way home, it started to drizzle, and I just thought it was the best feeling in the world to be safely ensconced in the car with Bunny on our way home to have dinner with Lulu. ♥

  25. Online shop? of what?, if I may ask. I've been thinking of starting a shop, recently, but only because I've been job searching for a few weeks now, and just haven't found anything I would like to do. It seems like a lot of work, and I'm really not sure what I'd like to sell (I have too many ideas.)
