  1. A “mediumist” that’s me. I like it.

    Colleen, you (and I) are not old enough to go to an antique store and have childhood memories! Not a real antique store, at least.

    • Hi Cindy,
      just remember Australia has only been colonised for 223 years so old doesn’t have to be that old here to seem antique. 🙂 I remember going to the east coast of America for the first time and being amused by the difference in age of the old buildings there compared to the ones in Australia. And then I went to Rome…

      • Hi Colleen! You just went to a vintage store that sells things from 30/40 years ago 😀 ! I know the feeling of thinking about old as I looked at a 300 year old square here in my home town. Then, just like you I remembered being in Rome, now talk about old! 😀

  2. Hey Colleen,

    Thank you so much for including my post in your Friday round-up! I can’t wait to check out the other posts (I’ve already read Type-A Minimalist’s post you have lined above. It was great!).

    • Hi Jenny,
      As usual it is my please and I should be the one thanking you. It can be a real challenge trying to find the time to read enough blogs to find five I really like but you often have something good that is appropriate for my blog and my readers.

  3. hey, thanks for sharing the link love. the unexpected byproduct of my trying to be more minimalist is that I no longer really enjoy cruising the antique shops. I’ve browsed and reminisced in antique shops on every day trip for the last couple of years, and now that I don’t want to bring ANYTHING home, the joy has gone out of it. I need to come up with some other activity than shopping when sightseeing in little towns!

    • Hi Dmarie,
      antiques shops are like museums to me with no entry fee. I enjoy some great entertainment in them for an hour or so and then go home empty handed and I’m happy.

      Yes Dmarie, I feel the same, so now I look out for the strange local produce these towns always seem to have – the bonus being you to get to eat it, so there is no residual clutter…

  4. Good reading! Thanks as usual.
