When we pulled up outside the given address, I even found the barn to be enticing. Just imagine what fun could be had if we had a barn like that to play and craft in. And just have a look at the beautifully peaceful view. *Sigh*
Inside were goodies in every direction I looked! Some I wanted to bring home, others were fun just to look at. A little corner of kitsch Australiana, tall and slender coffee pots, some earthy '80's ware which was all too familiar ...
... and there was one item that simply jumped out at me, wanting and needing to be taken home (with the perfect place already in mind). Fortunately I had a little bit of pocket money with me, and we beamed, did Girl 2 and I, as we skipped out of that barn and home to put our new-old globe on top of the piano.
It had to be really, didn't it? Look at that lovely teal colour!! You know how much I love teal. I think globes could become a serious collector's item in this house (this is the second globe we have now) as I simply adore them, for their roundness, for their colours, for their dream potential, for their learning. And a centrepiece on a table - gorgeous!

What about you, what was your most significant expenditure?
Do you have a love of old globes too?
