bright Orange on a dull Day


Wednesday was a cold, wet, grey day in Melbourne, and I had to go out on an errand, so, what better way to cheer up than with a quick stop-off at an Op Shop?
To my amazement, I found not only this wonderful green and orange table cloth, in great condition, for a bargain price, but also...

this lovely trio of vintage Tupperware.  Funny thing is I saw these on another blog last week and thought, how cute I remember buying some like that in the 1970s when I was a Tupperware Lady.  Now I have another set (my original ones are long gone!), too many house moves since then.

I also found a nice hand knitted (in nylon ribbon), handbag with bamboo handles, how very, very 1970s.  So, 10 minutes to spare landed me a great haul.
Now, I'm off to the hairdressers.. only 1 Oppy I usually stop off at on that trip.

  5. Love your finds - especially the Tupperware - I remember it well! If its any consolation - it was a grey, cold, wet and miserable day here in Scotland yesterday - and this is our summer!

  11. Very pretty tablecloth. I remember those Tupperware containers, too, although I don't think I ever had them in my collection either.
