Just in....

                                                                  Firstly at the WAC,
This wonderful picnic set, which is complete, made by Nally and is such great colours. Perfect for a Melbourne Cup track side picnic I say.
Note it has two thermoses. Often people try to pass these sets off as complete if they have only one Thermos.
Green Rocker and more poufes.
I like the simple button detail.
Baskets of all shapes and sizes.
This clown not only makes me think of Tam, at A treasured Past. But it kind of freaks me out. Whenever we get something that does this Kristen takes great delight in leaving it in various locations around the house so that when I come upon it I get a fright. So he has been on my bed, on the kids beds, in the laundry and even on my car seat before he finally made it over to the WAC. He, and Kristen, owe me some hair dye for the extra greys they have given me.
Trunks are so popular and we always try to have a few different ones to choose from.

Heavy old sticky tape dispenser.
So on to the Cottage Garden Nursery.
Big old Chest of Drawers.
Great pair of heavy Art Deco inspired 1960's pots.
Great size desk.
Dressing Table.
I put an apron on the mannequin for fun and it made her look topless. So I improvised a top out of tea towels. I have since covered them with vintage costume brooches, a few you can see here.
My chandelier was quickly nabbed to display in Gillian's Garden Cafe, within the nursery. The photo doesn't do it justice it. It is perfect for the spot.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.


  1. hehehe, we have a good laugh at the clown, how funny is Kristen :) Lots of lovelies this week, where do you find it all. The chandelier does look very pretty, Tam x

  3. Such fun finds and treasures you unearth.

  4. Please consider all pearls we have for sale. Great price good looking have all pearls for all antique people who want pearls

  5. No, No, No way.....I have a severe clown phobia, and if someone had done that to me I would have passed out on the floor as I did when I was a teenager and a friend threw one at me in the dark down her hallway one night when I was staying over, they are just evil...Im not sure why they are portrayed as 'fun things' make kids laugh, they seriously just about make me cry.....

  6. More insanely amazing stuff. I'm loving the dusty pink chest of drawers. Perfection. Pruxxx

  7. What an incredible picnic set..... so perfect for the races.....

  8. Evil clowns must be destroyed!! Must! I have terminal Coulrophobia. I'm traumatised ;) Must go back to lurking.

  9. hehe.. the clown freaks me out also.. that's the sort of thing my brothers used to do.. leaving the scary things in unexpected places.. My dead grandma's walking stick used to freak me out and 'somehow' it was always under my bed each night [even though I had moved it]

    Katherine I love lots of things here today.. the aqua dresser and is that a metal hat tin next to it?.. also love the white globe.. fabulous!!

    So I've been a bit slow to visit ppl also.. thanks for popping over my way... and have a fab week.. ciao xxx Julie

  10. Nurseries often grow plants in a greenhouse, a building of glass or in plastic tunnels, designed to protect young plants from harsh weather, while allowing access to light and ventilation. Modern greenhouses allow automated control of temperature, ventilation and light and semi-automated watering and feeding. Some also have fold-back roofs to allow "hardening-off" of plants without the need for manual transfer to outdoor beds.Most nurseries remain highly labor-intensive. Although some processes have been mechanised and automated, others have not. It remains highly unlikely that all plants treated in the same way at the same time will arrive at the same condition together, so plant care requires observation, judgment and manual dexterity; selection for sale requires comparison and judgment. A UK nurseryman has estimated that manpower accounts for 70% of his production costs. The largest UK nurseries have moved to minimize labour costs by the use of computer controlled warehousing methods: plants are pallet allocated to a location and grown on there with little human intervention. Picking merely requires selection of a batch and manual quality control before dispatch. In other cases, a high loss rate during maturation is accepted for the reduction in detailed plant maintenance costs.

  11. How cute is that pink chest of drawers Katherine. Hope you are well, looking forward to catching up x x
