I mentioned that we did a spot of antique shopping last weekend in beautiful Strathalbyn in the Adelaide Hills.

We have zero room for any more furniture but we did pick up a couple of little things, one being this great Art Deco kettle.



I also picked up these metal type letters that some enterprising soul had fashioned into people’s names. You know I’m a total type nerd so I was delighted to find my name. Unfortunately they arranged it so that each letter (rather than the entire word) is reversed, so I will rearrange it and attach them together with something other than sticky tape as it is currently.

Not sure what I’ll do with them yet – watch this space!

Have you made any great second hand finds lately?

  • Love them – laughing as I was trying to understand the type at first and then realized it was your name

    • Haha, yes that’s why I need to rearrange it so the whole word is a mirror image!

  • Great finds – love that kettle. My nan had one similar. I’ve seen some in my favourite op shop locally – I’ve plans to buy it and use it as a vase for fresh flowers.

    • Oo I love the vase idea!
