Love these plushies, handmade by Olga Wassupbrothers of Moscow, Russia. What's really awesome about them is that she repurposes old clothes, bits of fabric and buttons to make them, and uses natural dyes like tea, coffee and cinnamon to get the colours she wants. Love that they've got bits of crochet and lace on them as well. They're all so unique and unusual...
Have you visited your local SPCA lately? If you haven't, you should! Up until recently I used to avoid it because the sight of all those poor little homeless creatures breaks my heart, but I've since started visiting quite often, and I'd like to tell you about it so we can all help support them :)
It's not just a place to adopt animals, you can shop at their Charity shop which is full of awesome second hand stuff! And you can also get rid of pretty much anything that you no longer want by donating it. All the stuff on sale is donated, the stall holders are volunteers, and all proceeds go to the animals. The Springfield SPCA has a market day on the last Saturday of every month, from 8am to 1pm. You'll find the most awesome stuff there! Below are just some of the awesome things I've seen there...
And these are some of the treasures I picked up...
It really is the best place to get all sorts of stuff, and at really good prices, and all while helping save lives!
I've had an idea that I've been toying with for a while and I'd like to know if you guys think it's viable - There's so much awesome stuff to be found at the shop, a lot of which I'd love to have, but can't for various reasons. So I keep thinking about how I'd love to buy the stuff and sell it on here - My main motive is to help them sell stuff, and secondly to get you awesome people the super awesome stuff that I want but can't have, especially for people who can't get to the shop often or easily.
What do you think? Please let me know in the comments or by mailing me, if you'd be interested.
I just realised I only have pics of the cats :P But there are so many beautiful, loving dogs as well that I've spent time with there, who will all benefit!
Hey, happy faces! Due to some internet issues I've been having, I shan't be posting much this week and early next. Hopefully all shall resume (with an interesting announcement as well!) by the end of next week :)
In the meantime, have a look at my spaces on Pinterest and Twitter, follow if you like, and do keep in touch! (The image is unrelated, but lolzy :)
