our flower paradise

this tablecloth belonged to my grandmother, i think it’s from the sixties (mint condition). it’s pretty big, about 1.5m². i’m planning on having it framed because i love it so. made by the coca cola company! at least they’re good for something.

tick tock

i have a thing for old clocks. i would fill my house with them if it wasn’t for the fact that the ticking drives me nuts. one day i will fill a shelf with a row of silent ones. these vintage alarm clocks are from clockwork universe

cape town & suburbs

family friends found this book in a vintage market in geneva, switzerland – of all places. now it has returned to sunny south african shores. i think it was printed in the fourties / fifties (no date unfortunately), though the postcards inside are all probably from the turn of the century. i love the cover. more at my flickr

shorpy

shorpy is one of those sites i should have discovered years ago, but instead only found in the past month via this via that via this via some other site i forget. anyway i’m glad i did because these vintage images are quality. and when i say quality, i mean HIGH quality.
