Hello there Picket Fence Followers :) After a topsy turvy week blog wise, ( it looked rubbish for 48 hrs ) I'm back with my polka dots on and a fresh post to show you my treasure. For those of you who missed my last post, the Picket Fence Family took some time out, we went on a road trip to Dubbo.It was mainly a trip to catch up with family but of course the lure of those country second hand shops proved too much and I managed to squeeze in some bounty for the Picket Fence home. Remembering that I love a little rust, a little clutter , join me as I confess ;)
The big brown mirrored cupboard door brought eyebrows from Mr Picket Fence. This was our first stop and I think he wished we'd hired a truck :) I made it fit in the car xx
The sign although not vintage screamed at me from a shop window in Canowindra. Pretty much sums up the Picket Fence ethos and it looks mighty fine here , don't you think ?
Another clock, Click here to understand this must have. I love clocks xx
The Kingswood hardware, I found in a shed full of vintage bits and bots in Molong I thought this might look nice on a piece of furniture, and it reminds me of my Dad.
Mr Picket Fence bought the spinning top.
And I bought the tins. I've been after the clematis tin for ages now, a girl can never have enough tins !
I bought these from an antique shop in Cowra. The larger book is for baby Picket Fence, the smaller books to add to my collection.
O.K , two shots of the mirror, because I'm hopeless at photographing mirrors :) We bought this in Boorowa, from a shop based in the old town theatre, a lofty elegant old building, faded and grand ,typical of old country towns . I love mirrors, they almost act like a window in an older darker house. This was a win win ( Thank you Mr Picket Fence for seeing the logic xx)
Bath feet.... I am so excited about these, I'm unsure as to how I will use them, but to get a full set is a happy win.
A Fowlers Vacola sterilising unit.... I am going to use this as a planter... needs a delicate flowered plant to highlight the industrial green... Watch this space ;)
O.K now, I'm acutely aware that some viewers will not "get" my fascination with this old camp stove.... but ....sigh ....that blue...and sigh .... the Bake Queen script. I will use this beauty somewhere.
Oh I love hollow bodied cutlery xx
For the boy.
These kitschy enamel trays are perfect to brighten up a meal. I grab them when ever I find them.
So. There you have it, I've got plenty to play with this week. The Picket Fence children also did quite well. New clothes and toys were bought as we don't often get to see the variety of shops they have in Dubbo. Shopper satisfaction at an all time high we're looking forward to a bright sunny week. Although it's the last month of winter, the weather has been kind. Hoping you're week is wonderful also. Thanks for reading , I'd love your feedback and as always welcome new followers , so don't be shy, join in :)
See you soon !
