Despite living in a small, 1 bedroom flat with minimal cupboard space and much to my girlfriend's horror, my collection of stuff/geekery/memorabilia/clothes/accessories continues to grow at a supersonic rate. It's not that I have shit loads of disposable cash to spend or give value to myself through possessing copious amounts of material junk, but I just love giving a good home to things that make my eyes smile! I guess I'm slightly on the autistic spectrum when it comes to personifying inanimate objects and imagining the better life they will have with me!
I now have a whole 5 shelves dedicated to my PEZ collection, have stacked retro toy box upon retro toy box upon retro toy box and have a pair of gratuitously embellished shoes on pretty much every step of our stairs. I'm sure it won't be too long before I am the focus of one of those BBC 3 documentaries with 'oh so edgy subject' matter entitled "Lesbianism, Possession Hoarding and Me" or something equally as trite.
Being the stubborn, old bag lady that I am however, this premise, albeit frightening, has not deterred my love of grabbing a bargain or seeking out new treasures, so here are just a few of my latest finds for your viewing pleasure....
Hot Dog and Burger Pouches: Urban Outfitters
Baseball Cap: Ragged Priest
TMNT Socks: Primark
Tongue Tee: Lazy Oaf
Heart and Pills Badges: Handmade
Teeth Badge: SpaceSwamp
Lego Moleskine Notebook: Gift from the Mrs
Pretty neat stuffs huh? Oozing jealousy from every pore? Thought so.
Any of you lot picked up any little gems recently? Found any new designers or creatives? Anything uber rad that you think I should know about/research/stalk online? Let me know please, I'm always interested in filling ny multicoloured cranium with new nuggets of style wisdom.
Anyway, until next time my freaky friends, bye!
