The biggest garage sale on the north side...

Samford baby! Mum and I hit this one up last year aswell and I tell you what, this year was possibly just as good, if not better in the treasure stakes!! I got myself a HUGE load of old school kids books with the likes of The Magic Pudding, Peter Rabbit, The Bearnstein Bears, The House at Pooh Corner, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and all manner of little golden books...and MINI little golden books (that I didn't even know existed!!) all for the low low price of $11.
Because I have a miniscule foot I managed to squeeze into the raddest heels on earth, for 5 bucks no less! My sister wasn't so lucky with her bargain and they fell apart on her that afternoon when she wore them out, bugger. Lucky mum was around for an emergency pick up and shoe change!
I found the sweetest wee cut glass icecream dishes and some awesome doilies to add to the collection but I must say the find of the day stayed behind. As much as it saddens me I'm just not convinced my boyfriend would have been as pleased as I was with the pink velvet lounge suite with timber frame golden fringing...and so it got left behind.

the most amazing lounge suite in the universe...
possibly the greenest wardrobe i've ever seen (dad as good as laughed me down when I suggested maybe it was cool and we should make a purchase...sad face)
my rad new shoes, pretty much disco balls for my feet.

Get your nautical on!

This is one of my favourite new pieces that i've just put up on etsy. I honestly don't think I will ever find a zipper as cool or as colourful as this one ever again and it saddens me. Meanwhile, you can all have a wee look see here or over at my etsy shop Under the stairs studio.

Sunday, sunday..

A weekend of garage sales, church fetes, crafting, manual labour, trial and error, spag bowl, red wine, failed singstar attempts, the grand canyon, miss liberty herself and a lovely photography skilled sister. Here's but a taste of my epic weekend because I only have time for one upload and then I'm off to breakfast at the little larder with the sisters and the cousins, and the french toast with grilled banana and maple syrup!

love weekends!

What a rummage!

Even though the weather failed us and it was a fairly miserable day it was nice to see the young (and old/er) and the crafty out in force last weekend. There was so many stalls and SO much cool stuff I just had to close my eyes as I walked by other wise it would have been a very poor Morgan going home 4 hours later!
Your organ grinder was there and so was Holly from Pannikin. I had an old friend Grace have her first turn at rummaging and was our neighbour across the way. The lovely Laura was my other neighbour and partner in crime {getting the best home-made monte carlos and macaroon treats back to our friends} and so many new friends were made as the day went by. A big shout out to Mum, who brought me coffee and Vicki who also came with sustinence in the way of the most delicious sushi in town (Ann st baby!!). There were few photo memories made as I made such an intelligent move in forgetting my camera. Luckily our international student Wei came to the rescue!

my craft to the left and other bits to the right..

Grace setting up...

hmmm...loving life, clearly!
