I began work in a book shop, then joined the criminal career but it wasn't for me, I then became a musician, went busking in the park, met an unemployed fan, took him home, 'whoohooed' and had a baby boy.
I'm now a single working Mum...
... in the Sims3.
My reason for my lack of blogging lately has been because I've been living in the sims world (because I'm not busy enough in my own apparently!)
I've always been a game nerd.
I own a lot of consoles.
NES, SNES, Gameboy, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 64, Sega master system, Sega Megadrive, Sega game gear, and of course my computer. I've also had ps 1 & 2, and Xbox.
So yep, bit of a gamer here.
And those who have played any of the Sim games, know how much of an addiction it can become. Theme park is what started me off, I then got addicted to Theme Hospital, and then the Sims was it for me!
It gets to the stage where your real life is affected. Time passes so quickly.
I looked at my blogger account today and I had 100+ blogs to catch up on, and comments to reply to. So on my day off today, I'm playing catch up... in my real life.
I've still managed to get to the opshops before, during and after work, and this is what I've found.
I collect vintage/unusual badges. I can never go past a home made drawing especially when it makes me laugh like this did. 'Punk is cool' haha.
I've swapped over my 80's earring collection with my badges, as I'd stopped buying earrings because they're no longer 20c a pair, but $3 which I can't justify for something that I won't wear.
Now don't judge me, I know this is rather out there, and there's no way I'd have this set of salt and pepper shakers sitting on my imaginary dining room table, but I do love anything novelty, so these will look great amongst my S&P collection!
Another 3 aprons to add to the collection.
A photo cube made in the 70's. I'd love to get a heap of these, put interesting images in them and hang them from the ceiling at all different lengths.
I'm not sure if I've ever ventured into my Spice Girls passion on here before. I'm not a collector... yet, but I'm a massive fan... still.
They're a regular on my playlist, I've read their biographies, and my ears still prick up when their name is brought up.
Geri is by far my favorite. I wanted to be no one more when I was in year 7- current haha. I can see their items becoming huge in the collectors world in the future.
Their spice girls Impulse has gone up to $90 on eBay in the past, when once it was 10 for $2 at the reject shop after they broke up.
I am a regular eBay watcher of the dolls, and often put in a bid.
So yep, I got a tight pull in the stomach when I saw these two COMPLETE photo albums in the photo album section. 120 photos in each.
I always always wanted to collect them as a kid! Who ever collected these must have spent a fortune and had so many doubles! And now they're mine! I love them.
Novelty ashtray. Not the most happy clown in the world hey?
Hooded, faux fur lined, fitted jacket. One size too small, but pretty to look at! and Toggles!
Short sleeved knit with a bow in the front
Cute late 60's knit tee.
Fabulous jacket. The detailed shape on the front is beautiful. I'm sure there would have been a matching dress at one stage, but I'm happy to wear the jacket alone.
That's all of my finds, a friend came to visit the other day and brought me a belated birthday present! I swear they're the best ones because once you think the birthday's all done, you get a real surprise!
What a great little gift! 'A guide to being a goddess', there's some great things in there! A super cute home made coin purse. It reminds me of an owl. And lastly her favorite scented candle. Oh that made my week!!
And lastly, the amazing things Mum picked me up that I mentioned in my previous post.
She went to a garage sale of a girl who was moving overseas and who had lots of vintage goodies!
A pair of bagged Kewpie dolls. Not sure how long they'll stay bagged for even though the small value it possesses will be less after I do.
Cute gold vintage bag.
1950's cat eye sunglasses
Vintage blue plastic shaped shopping bag!
And lastly, the item that a dealer tried to buy from Mum as she flaunted it in front of him at the garage sale. She already had it under her arm when he walked in and pretty much ran to the pink one that was exactly the same, only to find that the top was melted and repainted. She then proceeded to make sure he saw hers haha which is when he approached her. Suckerrr.
I thought this was a 1950's bakelite bedside lamp, but when I googled it, I found one that was up for auction at an auction house and it was said to be 1930's? So now I have no idea.
And that's the lot!!
I'm feeling a bit fluey today (greaaaaaat) and so have no desire to cook (do I ever?) so have manipulated myself into believing that I deserve to order delivered pizza for dinner because I feel so bad.
Hope you all have a great night :)
