weekending....and something new-ish....

How is your weekend going? Mine is going great so far!

But first up I'd like to thank you all for the lovely comments I received on my last post about my blanket progress. So much encouragement! You are all so gorgeous, thank you for taking the time to comment, I love reading them (who wouldn't when you are all so nice!). There were a few questions about the blanket and types of yarns etc, so next time I post an update I will try to include more technical info for you all.

But anyhoo, I went for a fossick the other day at The Vintage Shed in Tyabb, and I have to show you what I found! (This place is fantastic if you are into mooching around all things old and wonderful, lots of clothes, furniture, household stuff, just about anything and everything, if you are in Melbourne and like op shopping, it is well worth a visit, it is only 5 minutes from here, lucky me!)

Yep, this special little 1960's retro table and the gorgeous vinyl chairs that match. I am very happy with this purchase.!! In excellent condition, it is just what I have been looking for to go next to our sunny window........

.....the perfect spot to catch some late afternoon rays and lose yourself in Harry Potter.....
This used to be where I had my 2 sleepy hollow chairs, but I like a bit of change, so now it is my pretend-I'm-sitting-in-a-funky-cafe spot, still great for crocheting, but now a good spot for breakfast and lunch too! Happy, happy, happy!!!!

........It's a pretty dreary day here weatherwise, so the mowing plans have been shelved, and I think I might get a bit of day time hooky action in, which is always nice! The boys are all happily occupied, so it might just have to happen!

Have a great weekend soon!


  1. Hey Jules, we used to have a dining table and chairs just like that when we were growing up. Maybe it's the angle of the pics, but it does look alot smaller than I remember............
    .Don't know what ever happened to our setting, but you better check under the table. There used to be a little ledge/space under there where I hid all my crusts, so if you find any .........!!

    It's a sunshiny day up this way, but the breeze is blowing straight off the snow. Enjoy the hooky action.

  2. These are just cool! I love retro. Wish we had a shop like that here.
    Hope you enjoy your hooky!!

  3. Wow , love your find and your big window. Is that a plan for your blanket on the table ?? I never get that organised :0)
    I love how your blanket is turning out ...enjoy the hooky time .

  4. I love your new table and chairs. I've been looking for quite some time for a set for my dining room but no luck so far - maybe one day. :)

  5. Love it!! Looks perfect sat in the window there! x

  6. Love the table, it's lovely and individual. Very nice and quirky. :-)

  7. I love this table and the place where you have put it. My family had a green laminex table like this and my auntie had the red. These tables always look so cheery

  8. Ooh, wonderful table and chairs you have found. Congratulations on such a terrific find! My daughter plays with American Girl dolls; she has an AG doll table and chairs set that looks almost identical to yours!

    Your blanket is GORGEOUS!!!


Thank you for taking the time to add your comment, I love to receive comments and read them all, even if I don't get around to responding to you, I am just not that organised!
