Not remembering the past

Through Vanessa de Lacy's blog I found Lark, selling all kinds of witty and fun home make things. Including magnets made out of swap cards from the 1970s which makes me want to buy them very much and also makes me want to unpack my cardboard boxes full of stuff I never look at but shift from house to house to see if my very own swap cards are still in there or if my very own swap cards didn't make the cut some time in the past and if I did buy these magnets I would, in fact, be buying back my very own swap cards.

I think it's more likely that it's just that nearly everybody in the 1970s had the very same swap cards.

Vanessa also makes beautiful and covetable things and has a very fine visual Christmas list of things she would like for Christmas. Which makes me think I don't get out op shopping anywhere near enough any more. And that I have been looking at the wrong bits of the immensity of the web recently as well.

Watch out for those crafter blogs - they are incredibly addictive...

There's a spreadsheet with every op shop in the ACT/Queanbeyan/Yass/Goulburn here - http://act-opshopping.blogspot.com/

In case you need it, you know? ;)
