l got quite excited as l wandered round ISHKA which had recently opened in the mall, as l noticed they had these gorgeous carved screens which l've loved FOREVER.....l was standing there checking them out when the saleslady came over and told me they were 50% off at the moment, which meant that instead of $795.00 they were only $390.00...so l did a little dance (ok.... so maybe just in
my head:-))..... and thought about it for about a nano second......and it was a done deal.
Originally it was stained timber (apparently recycled too) which was LOVELY.....but it's permanent home is to be against a dark (ugly) brick wall in the garden room so it needed to be white to show up the amazing carving...it took a LOT of coats of paint, but eventually it was white..
On a visit to my cousins place a few months ago she generously gave me these vintage corsets which she thinks may be from the 20's or 30's....they're so tiny its hard to imagine they fitted anyone.. EVER. They're shown with my daughters old ballet slippers and elbow length satin gloves from the 20's which are also teeny...there's no way l can get my hand in them.
Favourite mags and vintage jewellery, roses both real and not so real....scented candle..... all very girlie.
