shabby vignettes on a rainy day!

Hello, friday again; my favourite time of the week!

Made some very lovely finds over the week and enjoying a drizzly, wet day at home, creating little vignettes....

I have been able to pick up lots of pretty little china bowls and dishes... ill definently keep collecting, but its not easy!  

I found the pretty candleabra in a pretty home store the other day.. not old, but has a lovely patina!

My peonies smell amazing! they were discounted and as its cooler right now; they are lasting a lot longer than they do in december!

I purchased this gorgeous little drawer this morning.. I spied it on a vintage homewares page and it finally came up for sale yesterday. I was so worried i would miss it as i had college, but I was first to comment sold.. so it was mine!  a total steal at only fifty five dollars!!!

Love the carved legs with the touches of gold!

You can see from my pics that it is a very dark day! lots of wind and wild wet weather!!!  I must go in a sec to take my son to the dr as he is getting a bit of a chest infection.  hope he doesnt spread it to me, mums need to be healthy and i have had my fair share of being sick this year!

Although I have to dash, I will come back to my blog when i get home; I have decided to make a couple of little changes.  Although i had started my business and registered it etc.  I have been so busy that I havent been able to devote a lot of time to it.  But a friend has asked me to join her business which I am excited about...
She has a really great business mind and a lot of enthusiasm... We are going to make great partners!

So... I was also rethinking my blog...  The vision I had when I started blogging again, has perhaps changed... I have thought of a new name for my blog... Its inspired by my beautiful angel, my son in heaven, Sam...  I think i will need to keep the same url, and i may have changed the header by the time you are here...
Must go!
Have a fabulous weekend to everyone!

  6. Hi Laura, it has béen very long in between a visit to you.
    Thank you for sharing your vintage in a vignette to love.
    Is it not the best day to create when it is grey and sky's filled with rain? I so wish we had more rain her, I am looking so forward to grayer's so inspiring to create in the rain.
