One thing I know for sure.....here in this beautiful online world I have found a place where tribes gather.....
I know that when I have a moment that's a little hard to explain there are a whole bunch of you out there that KNOW exactly where I'm at.
I LOVE that.
So many of you share my love of thrift stores....here in Australia we call them Op-Shops- Opportunity Shops..how cool is that?
Anyways we live in a small, small town but we have an awesome op-shop and the elderly ladies that volunteer there....well can I say they kind of know me ;p
I walk in the other day and my eye goes straight to something delicious sitting on the counter.
I dont remember the exact words but something to the effect of " you always like things for the dress up box"..not quite sure where that came from,
perhaps just my love of the out of the ordinary, preloved exotica that noone else wants.
Who wouldn't want this?
torn, fragmented memories of a colourful life....
a coat of many colours...
intricately designed and stitched...
luscious patterns against silky green loveliness♥
and this one...lovingly sewed who knows where or why..
pom poms and patterns galore :)
I even love it here just hanging on the wall!
I know you're feeling it with me...so much beauty, care, love and possibility and they shoved them both into my bag for free with the words "strange, worn, colourful, different, weird, unusual, frayed" beautiful metaphors for a beautiful life ♥
