New, Old and Antique

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend..... a bit of a mixed bag of photo's for you today, a whole lot of random's l've taken lately.

Old singer sewing machine drawers l bought at the market ($20), they were pretty rough when l found them, but was happy enough with them once they'd been mended, sanded and painted. l totally forgot to take a before pic as usual....but just think, dark and brown :-)

My ruffled bedskirt arrived from the States a couple of weeks ago and l was THAT excited to put it on the bed and see how it looked....PRETTY....

 Pink (my fave) Florentine tray l found while at my daughter's in Adelaide. The crown compact was bought at an opshop on the way home. Hubby patiently? waited outside while l had a quick? browse...haha!!
The art nouveau glass (circa 1900) was found at the opshop for just 10 cents....l love it. The barbola mirror had a couple of missing and broken flowers so l glued on a few matching porcelain roses l had to make it look complete again.  
Rachel Ashwell shabby lovely. 
Awsome bag, hardly grey scarf from Cotton On, love the bit of fluro pink in the tassels.

It's Begonia Festival weekend in our town.....three days of events including an antique fair. Of course l went and checked it out this morning. The stallholders kindly let me take some pics of their stunning French Jumeau dolls. The  flower seller and the doll group are automotan's which the stallholder wound up so we could see them moving.

A new splattered painting l did for the art show which is also on this weekend. 
It was fitting l should find these old wedding cake toppers since hubby and l celebrated 30 years of marriage this week.....yeh l was a child bride....hahaha..
Our children sent us to the coast for the weekend as an anniversary present and this is the early morning sunrise captured on my iphone from the balcony where we stayed.
Thanks kiddo's we loved it...... 
Anyway....hope you enjoyed the post....thanks so much for stopping by.
Til next time,
