Our antique buying trip begins...

I eased into our first official day of buying by checking out the local tea room - very cute name! And after trouble getting here (volcano ash issues) a cup of tea is not such a bad way to start.
Then antique hunting began. Found a great set of skittles in one antique store, above, very folky and chunky. And hard to carry in one hand. But they have heaps of character and will be worth it.
And we are very pleased with a the 19th Century French day bed that we found. It has lovely French ticking upholstery.
And we couldn't leave this wonderful painted dresser behind. It is a lovely size and has oodles of charm. More pictures tomorrow, hopefully!


  1. Absolutely adore the french day bed,can I put 1st dibs in now, can't wait to see whatt else you find.

  2. Ooh I've been looking forward to your buying trip posts! Hehe, I just LOVE the name 'Singing Teapot' :) Glad you got there safely, even with all the volcanic ash issues!
