Animals invade!

A new one, but with animals on top and  animals inside.
I also recommend "Monster of God" by the same author!

A tiny collectors vase. 

I bought this Japanese vase from a very old lady in the Bater sea boot sale. She told me it's from seventies.

A huge original Gucci scarf for 50 pence!

Birds birds birds...

A very cozy  piece of clothing, bought at a boot sale from a very stylish older lady.


Stuff I've brought with me from London. 
I've realized-everything has an animal or a plant  printed or weaved on it. 
It just happens to me-I unconsciously  collect things, clothes, books and etc. with images of fauna or flora in all possible forms.
And now I have to say a word or two about secondhand shops in London. Lithuanian ones hide more surprises!
Of course, You can find vintage boutiques with amazing vintage clothes and accessories in London, but for a price of an antiquity.  Or buy a pair of Prada shoes for less than 10 pounds in a boot sale, if You are lucky.
Swedish charity shops offer seemingly inexhaustible source of Scandinavian pottery and furniture-always at a very attractive price. 
Lithuanians get their secondhand from all over the world-mostly Scandinavia and Britain. And these countries shelter other cultures: so it's possible to find an African dress suit or German police officer's coat. Not so much furniture or ceramics though...
