Skip diving (again) for large letters

Just a quick one.

I have to share with you my latest acquisition. When shopping in Geelong (which is the closest big town to my seaside location) I spied a large skip (dumpster) on the side of the road. If you have read any of my previous posts you will know that I am no stranger to retrieving things from skips – this day was no exception!

Naturally there needs to be something worth rummaging for in the skip, I don’t just fossick without intent. Although it would be foolish to rule out intent-less fossicking completely – one day.

This skip had the remains of a shop fit-out in it (another victim of the retail slump), and sitting on top of all the wood, plasterboard and other debris were all the letters from the shop sign – BINGO!

Wall discs – try some circular decor in your home!

Have you ever stopped to notice that almost everything we put on our wall is either square or rectangular?

I love these wall discs, simply because they’re circles … and also because you can change the material if you get sick of it (which is perfect for me – I change my decor with the seasons).

These are ideal for all ages – I gave a set of 3 to 2 nieces for Christmas, one who is 6 months old and the other is a teenager.
