Hi everyone hope you had a fab time at Christmas. Can't believe the big day has been and gone.
Kitchen cupboards still full of food and drink but now feeling sick of dare I say Chocolate!
I got loads of fantastic presents I was really spoilt this year. I will show you in a later post.
Hope you received lot of lovely pressies....................
Thought I would show you my lucky find of the day- which I brought for myself before Xmas.
With all the preparations going on did not have time to do a post before......
I had a lovely afternoon of last minute Xmas shopping with my daughter. It was one of those days
when everything seemed to go right. We found a parking space without any trouble, it had stopped
raining rare in Cornwall and we only had a few things to get so were having a relaxed time. We visited a local indoor market which was also selling antiques that day, so was especially interesting.
And to my daughters horror there was a kidney shaped dressing table for sale! We had talked in the
past about how I loved them, but you rarely see them now. My daughter tends to go for retro
furniture and has a few pieces herself....... We could not find anything wrong with the Vintage
dressing table it even had the original glass top. My daughters response was I'm not carrying it!
I did not know what she meant I hadn't said I was buying it..........
I managed to walk away for approx two stalls then had to go back .... I paid only £43.00 for it.
You could not buy anything as pretty as that new.. It has already been painted a pale cream and has
new glass handles added. It has the original rail underneath so I can add a curtain if I want to.
What do you think should I add a curtain ? (My daughter knows me well- And she did not carry it.
The stall holder and I carried it to my car).
As you can see from the pictures it fits perfectly in my bedroom and is in full use already.
I just need to find a pretty chair now.
WATCH THIS SPACE.
