antique market finds

.
so, last week we sneaked off to Ardingly Antiques fair. It was a super hot and sunny day, which combined with junk rummaging, resulted in pretty much my idea of heaven I have to say.
I already have an enormous amount of stock waiting to be listed on Bucket Tree, which I have been a tad to busy to get done! So i decided only to look for things for myself or display for our Rust shop.
So here are a few items {more will follow in next posts!} that we picked up for our showroom.
Above, a rusty bird bath, handy don't cha think?

and this wee dresser, something nice about it, don't know what though? also very handy for displaying tiny things like...um...jewellery!

I put some vintage wallpaper on the back, but it has subsequently all curled up! So please ignor this factor as I will do it again properly, with something stronger...like nails.

it holds a suprising amount of stuff actually, more room in there than in our whole kitchen.
Also, we found more old prints, taken from books around the Regency time. We use these alot for photographing our jewellery on and for inspiration. I love the way they have so much more expressions than modern book illustrations.

even the mushrooms.

I bought so many other bits and bobs that have now been dispersed around our flat. I will get hold of them and take a few pics to post here.
So, until tomorrow, farewell my dear readers!
