Lately, we've been talking about buying a house. Like a real, grown up house.
I suppose by 'talking', I mean that we're having lots of conversations and browsing at houses that are WAY out of our price range. Way, way out. This unfortunate reality comes crashing down rather quickly and the house buying chatter seems to abruptly come to a close and I go back to complaining about the ugly blue carpet in our unit and the ridiculous layout of our kitchen.
So what's a girl to do if she can't buy her dream home just yet? How about spend every weekend window shopping for the dream house she can't yet afford - bingo! For the past 2 weekends I've been a garage sale junkie, on the hunt for my next fix. Rozelle Markets, Megan Morton's Stylist's Garage Sale - no place is safe and don't even get me started on Michell Road Auction house, I've turned that place upside down...it's a gold mine, like stepping into my grandmother's attic, except this time it's filled with pristine Parker furniture.
So if you've wondered why I haven't been blogging, it's because I've been lusting after Parker furniture that I can't afford, for a house I don't yet own. Ah the joys of Sydney real estate.
