I seriously have no idea where the last week went... absolutely flew by! There are just never enough hours in the day. Since I last posted lots of stuff has happened... lots! Two crazy exciting things happened... I won a prize, me, I never win stuff!
Two fabulous and generous women, Renata from Forming Circles and Alison from Mums Who Make ran a competition via Facebook called 'Pay it Forward'. In short, they asked for submissions about why, how, what you would do with a market stall. Anyway out of a total of 140 entries, they picked 12... Coastal Home Love was one! I could not believe my eyes when I read the announcement. I'm so happy and grateful for this amazing opportunity. The prize was a $500 market package to help set up a stall at a market of my choice! Lots of work to do now, lots, but lucky for me I love what I do :)
Then if that wasn't enough; the cherry on top came yesterday... I got home after a long day, to find a story published by ShireWomen on their Facebook and web pages, about Coastal Home Love! Big huge thank you to Alison and Rebecca for this feature article, you girls rock!
So I have pretty much happy danced through the entire week!
I'm sorry that was all rather wordy, so to balance I have some pretty pictures now of a some wonderful vintage treasures I found this week. I heart treasure hunting, and got lucky with this haul!
The cream crochet blanket, I love!; it's the perfect size for draping over knees (Nana style), or hanging over the back of a chair and it's made of wool, no marks or pulls... Score!
I got two vintage silver trays, the large one has pretty engraving, is really heavy and stamped on it's bottom! ;)
I found a cute wicker bread basket, a lovely oval shaped platter and a white ceramic bowl with twin blue stripes.
I also found a little tree thinga-ma-bob on a stand, I think it's for jewellery, it'll get a little spray job and sit on my dressing table.
Now I may or may not have a thing for ice buckets; I mean how many does one need after all? But I just can't seem to pass them up....
Two more join my little collection, including a stainless steal one, just a little bit posh, and a lovely little vintage enamel, nautical style one... glee!
Wishing you all a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!
