We've been doing so much at uni that I haven't had time to write about my trip to Yellowstone yet! We headed here after Palm Springs and it was so darn pretty!

I'm a little in love with smokey bear- I bought a vintage smokey bear poster off eBay and I'm so excited for it to arrive!

There are squirrels and chipmunks everywhere- they are so sweet! I still haven't gotten over how cutely they prance around. 

Just a pretty view :-)

This big bull elk was only about 2m away! His antlers were crazy big!

So I probably won't be posting much for a long time because most of my uni photos are taken with my terrible quality old phone and I haven't been travelling anywhere or doing much op shopping so toodaloo for now :-)

Thrift finds

Ok so I've been super bad at posting on here, I'm at uni now and I've been so busy! You will just have to ignore the terrible quality of the photos and admire all the tacky goodness. 

The thrift shops in America are AMAZING! I've been to about 5 in the past few weeks and all have had so many goodies. It's been so hard to resist, knowing that I somehow have to get it all back to Australia. 

There is so much american kitsch stuff here. I am in love! I am especially taken with the 1977 plaster horse wall hanging! Pretty darn ugly, but so good. I have two that are really similar, so that makes it a collection, yay!

I hardly ever find vintage planters and one goodwill had a whole heap, all for $1-$2, each! Isn't the donkey one too cute? Can't wait to plant a cactus in him :-)

 I've also found about a dozen beautiful cards to add to my ever expanding card collection. I find it so hard to actually use them because they are just too lovely! 

Hope you're all having a lovely week and having good luck at the op shops!
