Inspirations everywhere

Well, it is day five of our buying and I cannot believe how much we have found. I returned to the shop with a courtyard garden and bought the set of six stools (yes, there were six to my delight, all c.1900 elm). Very pleased with these. And Donna picked up a set of 8 early 19th century rush seat chairs as well as 4 dressmakers dummies. I had to take a photo of this florist shop "Twig" above, very whimisical. At the beginning and end of each day, the shop owner pulls the flowers and plants in and out of the shop. But well worth it, I believe. Nearby we went into a trade showroom, photos below.
An antique couch that was beautiful enough for my loungeroom, but not quite the right shape. Beautiful linen and pleating, however. Also a little outside my budget.
The garden and statuatory area of the showroom. We are going to meet up with Donna today and see all the goodies she has found. Very exciting.


  1. It all looks stunning, how much fun a buying trip must be. That couch is gorgeous a shame it wasn't quite right. Can't wait to see more.
