My thrifted silk embroidery of Peacock or lyre bird

Had to send off a few things at post so after we swung by two local antique/vintage places that were closing down due to high rent. I hate seeing smaller, local places pushed out like that to make way for bigger nation-wide/international companies.

I wanted so much to get a gorgeous nude portrait for $65 but let that pass (again.). But I did pick some things up from Vinnies and this vintage shop.

Peacock or lyre or pheonix birds hand embroidered onto antique silk and dated 1968. Goes well with my cheery, colourful prints in living area.

Vintage typewriter. In as new condition!! Gorgeous, always wanted a vintage typewriter. Small enough not to be a space-nuisance!

And a pink ceramic dressing table box. Makes great one-off gifts.

Great day :)
