[For the Home] Some old and new finds

MbM_FOR-THE-HOME_MAIN

I’ve been wanting to share this post after Christmas having picked up a few vintage goodies at an auction in Ireland but somehow managed to let it slip amidst all the work and madness that is life! :) That being said, it’s actually given me a better excuse to share a few more items I’ve bought since then – both old and new. I’m currently going through a phase of wanting to pick up pieces of lovely homeware for the flat but being mindful of the purse strings…..which is incredibly challenging when you’re a designer and home-maker! It can be hard having to constantly refrain from splashing out on things for the house but I must say, I do enjoy scouring everywhere for little treasures at a good bargain! I get such a kick from it! And boy, auctions are great fun too although you need to be prepared to win some and loose some! :)

So, anyway, what you see here are a combination of thrift shop, ebay, vintage auction and high street finds. My all-time favourite finds of the bunch (and real bargains too!) are the Victorian bone china teapot, the retro 1960s Thomas of Germany coffee pot and milk jug, and the 1950s egg cup set which to me is simply unique! And I got my first Falcon enamelware too with the 5-piece pie set. The serving dishes were also from an auction and dates back to the 40s. The others are all ‘newer’ finds yet keeping it relatively ‘retro’ or ‘vintage-inspired’. So what do you think? Have I done alright? :)
