Today's show and tell day, but I'm also going to take you on a little trip around the local tip and let you into one of my dreams, so lets start.
I found this too cute tea towel, It must be tea towel month has I've been coming across them right left and centre, it needs a wash but will come up bute, thinking of using it for a cushion cover??? any other ideas out there???
I just love 1970's Staffordshire pottery. I originally came from Staffordshire so I've a soft spot for the stuff, there's a set of 6 and at just 3$ a steel. Love the cool blue colour Ymmm!!!
Anyone for drink???? fits just nicely in my retro cocktail bar
super world ice bucket
Now these two stools are so cool I could'nt believe my eyes when I saw them, Oh!! so retro and Eamesy!!!!! I just made that word up, Eamesy meaning of the Eames era. They were made in South Australia
I found this orignal oil painting at the tip/Crate which I rescued she's a little damaged, with parts of the oil paint cracked plus a couple of small holes. Well there's always good old you tube, But I think this all adds to her beauty.
Love this bit of 1970's Japanese pottery nice shape
and below are bright coloured Rosti Mapal Denmark egg cups and salad servers. would love to find other matching colored Rosti egg cups to make a set of 6
Now to take you on a little trip to show you what I found and can't have because of space, also what's out and about in my area that may interest you. First Vinnies op shop
One set of six chairs, I would of just loved to get them, they were so nice in white, the table they can keep just give me the chairs, sob, sob, I want them!!!! at just 95$ for the lot a bargin me thinks
Now its on to the local tip which is called the Crate the money made goes to local charities.
How nice is this old cupboard for the shabby chic look
Just look at this old wooden box I've come acoss lots of these boxes in all sizes here
How about these old chairs? the bentwood stools were in perfect condition, there were a pair of them both with rattan cane seats. I also like the old country style wooden chair
Anyone for shabby chic?? nice coat of paint and you have a lovely sun lounge
Nice set of steps or little table
Deck chairs for recovering anyone?
And while your sunning yourself how's about a little light reading from the 60's girls?
Now I would love to share a dream of mine I would just love to renivate an old terrice house, below's one I found in the mountains it's in the Sydney Paddington style
This home I found on realestate.au
Just look at that beautiful latice work
upstairs balcony with outdoor window shutters, shutters work so no need of blinds or curtains
View of little cottages with hill backdrop.
Below I'm showing pictures from inside the home. With a little planning and hard work I do belive this would be a stunning home It's not to big but big enough for me to renivate.
Beautiful leadlight window
