Old Lost Treasures

I must show you what I found today.

Just down the road from my house is a funky, quirky little shop, it is dedicated to all things vintage and is the home of many old lost treasures!

I have purchased a few odds and ends there over the past few years and these little gems are my latest finds.

I just love the shape of these retro Bessemer cups (mugs) one in my new favourite colour Chartreuse Green and the other in a gorgeous Aqua,
don't they just sing, standing there together!

Of course this is only the beginning, I now hope for my little set to grow, just imagine the colour possibilities, Persimmon, Cherry, Buttermilk, Baby Doll Pink. who knows, that's part of the fun!

What would be the treasure you have found that gives you the biggest thrill, you were in the right place at the right time and snapped it up and took it home?

love to hear about it!!

Until next time

Hedgerow Pears

I am very excited to be releasing my first Christmas project for this year.

I am having a bit of a love affair with pears at the moment, apart from being yummy, their fragrance and many varying colours are really gorgeous. You know you have a good one when you have to sit in the bath just to eat it!!

Hedgerow Pears are linen and fabric pears, they mark each guests place at the table with an adorable little name tag that swings from the pear's stalk.

or you can just line them up on the table as your centre piece or hang them around purely to decorate.
They are quite versatile really!!

Keep a look out in your favourite store for them.

I hope they inspire you,

Chocolate Spoons

It is our Lily's 11th birthday on Friday, she will be having some friends come over Saturday night for a very grown up party!

I have seen other people make these adorable little treats and have been waiting for an excuse to make a batch myself.

It is rather a bleak day here in Melbourne today, so the photo is a little dark, but these are so delightful I think they shine through anyway.
