I wanted to show you all a few of my favorite finds.
I have madly been doing the second hand shops in Toowoomba and I have came across some lovely things. I got the glass cake stand for only $5. I put my dome over it, and sat my silver bird and a ceramic rose i there as well.
I have seen so many blogs that use the domes for decorating and they look lovely, so I was excited I found this one on my Honey moon at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre in Brisbane. I even saw Sandy from www.paintmewhite.com There is some great stuff in there to see.
Plates is what I have been hunting for though....
Dinner plates, wine glasses, drinking glasses, bread and butter plates theses are just some of the things I have been buying from the Op shops.
When I walk into Vinnie's and the lady asks me how the plate hunting is going I know that I have been in there WAY to many times....hahah
Their is nothing like having lovely old china plates to eat off..and set the table with. All the colour comes from the plates and light glimmering on the glass makes a elegant table setting.
This set below I got on Friday from a op shop I didn't even know was there.....I know I missed one..
This was only $6 for the lot.
It's not a full set but close enough...
I needed some where to store all this china so I brought down this old cupboard from the dairy, it used to have all my material stored in it...Now though the dairy is always full of back packers and I have no sewing room..I love this old girl though.
And as you can see she is filling up fast with china.
The inside was already painted the teal colour which I'm loving at the moment.
Thanks for spending time reading my blog....
HEY MANDY GUESS WHO MWAHAHAH
