Things we found at the Estate


Lots of fun old hats...the lady had been a very good sewer and made all her own clothes and decorated and made her hats.


I always love lady head vases and they are getting much harder to find these days.


I always love old tins. This one is just so cute..




Lots of lovely old bits and pieces from an old home Kristen came across yesterday. We also got some other items which I will show you soon. Sorry for the light posts this last week have been super busy with the kids ...so I have lots of catching up to do with the shops etc and also with all the wonderful blogs I love to visit. Really there is just not enough time in a day is there??

  7. Wow, all great. But particularly love the ladies head vase and the pair of yellow vases!! You can never have too many... I Don't mean to sound desperate but what do you think this doll is?? http://flotsamfriends.blogspot.com/2010/07/i-dont-know-what-or-who-you-are-do-you.html Maybe it is just a sand mould after all??

  8. Hey everyone...a small not so fun detail is my dining room is now full yet again of stock...and this lot has a distinct old lady, ie too much soap and lavender, smell as does my car...haha. The vase you mention Anita is Japanese, there glassworks were very good at doing that multi coloured look it has...I do like it's shape and size too. xx Katherine

  9. Hello. I found you via Helen in Oregon and found you are interested in old and unusual objects.
    Helen Jones (my IXL) of Mudjimba is auctioning her beachside home next Saturday. She is retiring to live on a yacht for a year or two and is parting with her collection of Austaliana and original art.
    If you are interested in such things as a marble topped butchers' table, colonial table and side board French tables and chairs and many more, give her a call and she can send you photographs.

    Some might have been included in photos I sent Helen some of which were in my blog a few days ago but any interest you express will be welcome.

    Her e-mail is helen@gallerylevel.com.au or you can contact her through me. :-)
