Bric a Brac From Today's Estate ~

It seems like ages since I have done a dining table post of the days bric a brac finds. It doesn't seem like ages though since the dining table was empty so I must have just been slack in showing you.
Today Kristen went to an inner city house on the Northside. Due to a large storm at lunch time he called me over to move the bric a brac as it is much easier in my car than the ute in rainy weather. The only down side of this is my car will smell dusty and musty for days after. The truth is I don't mind when it means we have this lot of treasures to sort through.
I am loving this large lamp.

Foo Dogs
Close up of the nice layer of dust on the Foo Dogs. The magic of china though is it will all clean off and their beauty will be revealed again.

Le Creuset casserole dishes. We got quite a few and a saucepan too.
I love the colour of these 60's lamps. The bases are marble and are therefore quite heavy.
Unusual set of stainless steel bowls. The trim is fantastic and very 1970's.
Cantilever sewing box. Quite large and on wheels.
Lastly I love this large bottle. I dare not keep it as I know it would start a large bottle obsession but I do love it so. Kristen also got a fabulous chair from the house aswell. I know what you are thinking...a chair big deal....but I will show it to you tomorrow, pinky promise, as I am too slack to walk downstairs and photograph it now. I know some of you will ADORE it as much as me.  Hope you all have a good weekend.


  1. Ooh lots of treasures all over again, glad it's you and not me this week though!

  2. WOW! I would want to keep it all! Esp that sewing box, it is fantastic! And that big lamp is so cool and those foo dogs should get you a tidy profit once dusted off - how exciting!
    Great post,

  3. Great things. My Mum has a set of stainless steel bowls with that floral trim. Look at that massive bull too. Always tempted by your dining table posts, Katherine. xx

  4. I would adore going to estate sales! Op shops just aren't what they used to be. I agree with Janette - I'd want to keep it all!!

  5. I wish I'd known you were on my side of town! I would have asked you to stay for a cuppa and then hijacked those sweet foo dogs! Are they going to be at the Gabba soon? I love them!

    Best wishes,

  7. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my
    own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  13. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?

  15. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in
    which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had a hard
    time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure
    in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
