I adore weeping willows. They evoke lovely memories of being a child. We would hide and play under the soothing cool cover of the willow trees in the summer. It was if it was a magical outdoor room that was all ours!
I found these incredibly organic pieces at my friends The Victorian Trading Company. I love the feminine form and movement of them.
Natural, romantic, enduring, and classic. Each piece is handcrafted by Bolivian artisans.
Antiquing yesterday with The Mr. was great fun! I found a great lot of vintage peach Fire King Lusterware plates, bowls and side plates for just $13. What a bargain!
Since my old plates have gotten worse for wear, I decided to treat myself to some *new* plates for our new pad. These little vintage shimmery gems are so pretty! Originally, I had picked them up to re-sell but when The Mr. said, “Those will be cool in our new place!” I quickly changed my mind to keeping these and starting a new collection!
I adore candles. We use them often, day and night. I like fragrant candles especially, in scents of warm sandalwood, vanilla and musk. Yummy. I thought these were absolutely gorgeous and would be lovely grouped in a corner, hanging in a garden.
Dangle a myriad of these overhead to create an ethereal retreat. 4 x 18″.
Our good friend here on wordpress.com, Edwina from Australia, has a lovely store that I hope you all check out. re:retro.
She has some of the coolest and most unique vintage wares out there. Think unique gift giving for the holidays friends, not big box!
A word from Edwina from her blog:
“I am particularly fond of kitsch. Kitsch items are funny, playful and often ironic… and are fantastic to use in contrast to a minimalist, functional furniture setting.
My collection is now too large for me to enjoy it all, and I am reluctantly parting with it. I figure it should be enjoyed by others, so whether you are a collector yourself, or want to start a collection, or want an unusual gift for a friend – email me and we can discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org. I am careful to only collect things that are in good condition and still fit for purpose- if there is any natural wear and tear I will make that clear.”
