Here are some pictures of the items we got today from a lovely lady who was moving
house. The little step ladder's legs fold into itself and would make an interesting little shelf.
Although this is a desk I could also see it used as a sideboard with a basket in the
centre between the drawers and a big mirror above it.
I fell in love with these fabulous mirrors, the unpainted one has some lovely details to the top and I thought the shape of the white was lovely.

I so love old work benches.... can't you just see this one with a bit of restoration as a kitchen island or on a verandah filled with baskets, enamelware or plants underneath. I also loved the cane blanket box. The legs on it splay out, so it gives it a stylish shape.

Last night was the first 'Girls night out' at The Woolloongabba Antique Centre. Bronnie Masefau interior designer and author of the beautiful book "Australian Vintage Living" spoke of her love of vintage in decorating and gave a wonderful demonstration on how to prepare for a High tea ahead of time and she had some great tips. It was a fun night and it was wonderful to meet so many lovely ladies. Thank -you to Michelle from Divine Finds, who has a beautiful blog here for hosting the event and doing such a great job.
