Well, I have to say that I was a little disappointed at the lack of great stuff on offer this weekend at the markets. I went to three and only returned with a handfull of items. I completely forgot it was Fathers Day as my Pa is in Spain and has been for weeks! I did give him a card though before he left. So these are the few bits I found, the pics are a bit naff but you get the idea…
So These two handsome chaps are Circa 1930 and were made in England by the Price Brothers. They are darling Biscuit coloured bookends.
Two lovely old Granny Crochet blankets. Is it Crochet or Crocheted????
A 19th century Guilt wall light, that needs re-wiring! Big time!
And this is the Bat Mobile! ET and I could not believe it when we pulled up behind it on our way home from the markets! He is really into cars, so he screamed with delight!
As you know it was Fathers Day, And I have the most wonderful Father.
This fathers day has been bitter sweet for me as it’s my son’s first Father-less Fathers Day.
When you have a son that is deserted by a worthless father it truly makes you appreciate your own father just for being there.
There are too many sons and daughters growing up without Daddies, any man who is there, paying school fees and bringing home a wage to feed his kids and love them deserves to be appreciated on Fathers Day.
It makes all the little things I blamed my Dad for seem so pathetic, because he was, at least, there for me and loved and provided for me.
My wonderful Pa and ET. I hope I can find a guy even half as wonderful as my dad!
Love to you all, Sadie xxx
Any vintage girl worth her salt, know’s that Breakfast at Tiffany’s was not just fabulous for Audrey and the Fashions, but the quirky interiors of her crazy apartment.
From the Telephone in the suit case, to the wrought iron bed she shared with Cat. But the piece de resistance was always the Cast Iron bath tub Couch.
So here it is, as re-invented by Ruff House Art, and currently available for sale at Etsy. A really great item all round I think and looks like it has been really well made. By it, or regret it.
Love Sadie xx
Hello all, I just spotted this great contest via Claudia’s post at The Paris Apartment.
The prize is $10,000 AND tickets to Maison & Objet in Paris this year. Amazing prize huh?
They want an image that inspires you and 100 words to go with. Unfortunately it’s only open to US residents, but if I were able to enter this is what my entry would look like.
“I hold my breath with anticipation when I turn the little cobbled street corner and see that little word “Brocante”. A million treasures, waiting to be discovered, re-loved and re-imagined into a new life. Old floral linens, still warm with memories of Sunday sleep-ins, mottled mirrors etched with a thousand reflections, tea cups and vases with the echo’s of milk and cut flowers. Each little trinket with it’s own story, and now, their stories begin again with each little discovery. Stopping my heart with excitement, and throwing open the windows of my imagination.”
If you are as US citizen and want to have a bash, you can enter at this link.
One thing I miss about my singlegirl, child free days is the ability to up and off to the summer festivals.
And THIS is where I want to be this summer. That Wayne Hemmingway! What a guy!

Bye for now lovelies!
Hi all, hope your having a great weekend? Are you all gearing up for the Bank Holiday boot fairs too? I wonder what treasures we will find?
Just wanted to show you some of my new items I have just launched in my Vintage Tea Cup Candles Range.
The tea cups are all vintage and special in their own right, and I have filled them with a delicately scented candle made for 100% eco friendly soy flakes, which means they not only burn clean, but, once the candle has burnt out you can just clean the cup with soap and warm water and it will be ready to be used again as a tea cup or send it back to me and I will refill it for you! ULTIMATE recycling! Another reason why I love vintage and antique items!
The next candle was done on the spur of the moment, but I think it is really cute! Non?
You can buy any of the candles and more in the collection that are not shown here by clicking the following link!
Happy shopping everyone!
