My fave bookshelf & Vintage Enamel Flower Brooches

Welcome to my favourite (so far) part of our apartment.  
This little bookshelf is home to some of the prettiest things I own. 
The painting was from my mom, who thrifted it. (go mom!)
On the bottom shelf are my scrapbooks, vintage fashion magazines and boxes of photos.
2nd shelf has photo albums, data discs storing photobackups, an old Pentaz SLR and an ice cream cone that is actually a bubble blower.
Above that we have my 2 polaroid cameras (post about them to come) and the typewriter in my favourite color that I found at a yard sale for $7.
Then we've got a vintage globe, (the first of a hopeful collection - I love inaccurate geography.) my lomography camera, the camera from my grandpa (story here) and my vintage flower pins. 
 They were a little dusty yesterday, so I cleaned them up and then did a little photoshoot :)

They've all been thrifted over the past 6-7 years, never bought online, only found surprises at yard sales and good will shops.  I find it more exciting of a collection that way, they're all found treasures. 
Tonight my friends are hosting an outdoor movie night in their backyard E.T. & Jaws under the stars.  What are you up to this weekend? I hope it's a good one!


  1. I adore your flower brooches! :)

  2. I think that old cameras and typewriters make fantastic decorations. Your bookshelf looks great.

  3. You have the coolest stuff! That typewriter is amazing :) I hope you enjoyed your movie night, it sounds so fun!

  4. I've never been so jealous of a shelf! That typewriter has my heart! And what a collection of pins, holy cow.

    I spent the weekend studying, womp womp. Wish I was watching ET and Jaws too! ♥

  5. The colours are fantastic. Awesome.

  6. omg, i love it girl! SO sweet. i want a globe so bad. it's just lovely. i have those icecream bubbles too! in mint green:)

  7. Oh my goodness, your collection is magical! I love the shots of them all individually.

  8. That is a killer awesome corner. I adore your typewriter and your rockin bad ass collection. I just recently stumbled onto my first few and I adore them so.

  9. It's been a while since I've been here but your flower broches are to die for. They are all so unique. Tomorrow is my turn to take bags of things to my favorite thrift store. I will see what I can find. thanks for sharing.

  10. Gorgeous Brooch/Pins. WoW!! The buyers on Etsy would absoluutely love to have these for making their Bridal Bouquets, which has become a big trend over the past few years.
