As Promised Dining Table Treasures from Recent ESTATE

So there has been a little delay in showing you the treasures now waiting to be attended to on my dining table. Yesterday I happily downed tools for the day and excitedly headed off with Anita from Fun and VJ's , in the Subaru, to visit our friend Jo from Desire to Inspire in her new, amazing (old) abode, in fabulous Ipswich.(Yes you read right Ipswich is fabulous). Let me just say, as we drove down Jo's street looking for her house number it was suddenly more than obvious which one was Jo's. We let out a communal gasp as we ogled the verandah decor. Jo gave us the tour and every corner just oozes style. All I could think was..."And this is unrenovated...just imagine how it will look when she has worked her magic on it ??" You can read more about our adventures here and the stunning new store in Ipswich, E S Traders, Jo introduced us to. Yes I know I should have taken pics...next time for sure !!
 Now on to the dining table..don't forget you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.
Beautiful Birds
Amazing ashtray, his jaw wobbles.
I love this milk jug and sugar bowl.
Large German vase.....yes he is staying...I have already somehow managed to make a space for him and will introduce him to his other pals soon.

I am in love with this girls face.
Another statue of Mary.
Sweet Brownie Downing Cup and Saucer. Hope you all have a great day. Remember if you see anything on the blog you love you can email us at boathome@bigpond.net.au


  1. Don't know about the skull ashtray Katherine. Wondering if it is a scare tactic?

    There are some lovely treasures there for sure. Love the ducks.

    Sounds like a fab day yesterday. You delightful social butterfly you!
    Have a great day.

  2. Katherine, I'd love to see what you swap out to keep the West German vase. That would be extremely interesting to see. Thanks for a great day too. xx

  3. Fabulous finds Katherine! I can't stand that you're so far away and I can't just stop by your shop! xx

  4. I just got rid of a Subaru boot full to Anita and now you have a dining table top stuffed full of things I just have to have :P

  5. Lots of great goodies! That ashtray is scary!
    I can't believe neither you or ANita took pics of Jo's home. You were both obviously too excited!!

  6. What a fab haul! Love the German vase - hope he likes his new home. Sounds like you had a great day yesterday - pics next time please! Michelle

  7. Ooohhh, love the last chalkware Mary statue..the victorian glass dome, the spelter? clock, and the black lady statue...Tam x

  8. Can I come work for you? Ha ha

  9. Omg! Is that a biscuit tin? Or chocolate tin? Need. To. See!!! :)

  10. What an array of treasures! I love the look of that glass dome and the Mary statue! The skull was a bit spooky though! I haven't been to Ipswich for ages.... it might be time for another visit! X

  11. I need that first aid kit. Oh dear!

  12. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!

    Here is my page; youtube.com

  13. Have you ever thought about writing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based on the same subjects you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my viewers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel
    free to shoot me an e mail.

  14. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there
    any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!

  16. Hey, I'm new to blogging and internet sites in general and was wanting to know how you got the "www" included in your domain name? I see your web address, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=599059036157720302&postID=5608313778352652336" has the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know the way I can change this? I'm
    using Wordpress. Many thanks

  17. I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post's to be what precisely I'm looking for.
    can you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?

  18. Hello there. I was considering adding a link back to your website since both
    of our sites are based mostly around the same niche.
    Would you prefer I link to you using your site address: http:
    //www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=599059036157720302&postID=5608313778352652336 or blog title: Blogger: the old boathouse.

  19. Browsing delicious.com I noticed your site bookmarked as: Blogger: the old boathouse.
    Now I am assuming you book-marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social
    bookmarking gets you a large amount of site visitors?
    I've been looking at doing some book-marking for a few of my sites but wasn't sure if
    it would generate any positive results. Thanks.

    seriously appreciate your technique of blogging.

  22. Hi, I think your website might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted
    to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

    Also visit my blog used refrigerators :: www.purevolume.com :

  23. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and all. But think about if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could
    definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Superb blog!
