november lovelies...







as promised, some of my november thrifting and handmade finds... 

how lovely when various treasures come together to create a perfectly harmonious collection of prettiness







various vintage bottles and pitchers, with little twigs of wildflowers, all lined up


the lovely mushroom and bird?  two pieces from my ever growing collection  of cary's (littlelovblue) creations

the pretty johnson brother's pitcher and stoneware ink bottle?  two pieces snatched up from my aunt tricia's vintage shop (ladysneezeweed)

most of the other bottles were thrifting finds... how does one pass up old medicinal bottles with labels such as 'sutherland sisters hair grower' and 'hamlin's wizard oil'?  especially when several were on sale for $4 each!





























the antique chapel chair i picked up on clearance while thrifting...

i've been slowly collecting various vintage and antique wooden chairs to create a perfectly mismatched set of dining chairs... ready to place around the lovely antique dining table which i've yet to acquire!  i've been determined to hold off buying a table, until i find the right one (trying so hard to avoid buying the inexpensive ikea table to tide me over)








and here is another lovely i just grabbed from my mom's vintage shop (imsovintage)... an old metal watering can.  i have so many ideas for this one









happy sunday

I think Tula has her own ideas for the watering can. Maybe when I come to visit next month we can find you a table. Think auction 8-)

Bottles and chairs. I can relate!! I have a wee chair fetish myself, and the bottle collection is also increasing (mainly because my partner has this knack for turning up vintage bottles at the park (which used to be a tip).

Gorgeous images...have got me inspired!!

It looks indeed lovely and a littlebit dreamlike, like watching a winter fairy tale.
