Just a little purchase...

...and a little post, as I am quite under the weather today :o(

Recently Hubs and I celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary (love you more than ever Hubs Magee!), and to mark the occasion we traveled back to our honeymoon destination in the NSW hills. It was a lovely day, picking up beautiful local produce, dining at the organic restaurant we fell in love with, and dreaming of our return to the stunning honeymoon accommodation we stayed in last year.

On our drive through the hills I spotted a 'Huge Garage Sale' sign. I tried to let Hubs drive past unscathed, but within seconds I was telling him to TURN AROUND! See, the property holding the sale was a big beautful house with a huge garden, full of statues and ironwork. I figured somebody with a garden that lovely, would be bound to have an interesting collection of furniture and knick knacks. I was right.

There was shabby shic/antique furniture everywhere I looked! I couldn't even tell you how much of it I wanted to take home with me. But what really caught my eye was a pair of stools (perhaps even tables) that happened to have a very reasonable price tag.

$20 $10 !! OKAY! Done!
So with only a little pondering of where on earth I would put them, we had them in the back of the Suzi, ready to come home.
And here they sit! Aren't they just divine?!?! I love finding pieces that you can't get in just any store, and these stools will be timeless in my home.
So, they are in need of a little TLC, and when the weather fines up I plan on giving them a fresh coat of white paint (they seem to be two different shades of white), but can't you just imagine them in cheerful yellow, moody grey or vibrant turquoise?!?! I am sure they will see a number of paint jobs, and I will keep you posted on any changes :o) Oh, and if you were wondering, they are currently sitting under my floating shelves. I bought them with the intention of using them for seating on our front porch, but they have quickly become too precious to leave outside!

  4. It seems my stools have a little fan club :oD

  5. The wardrobe looked just awful but now it looks a littel bit better. I need to fix some smaller misstakes etc but the big work is done now :-).

    Oh the stools are just lovely!!!!

  6. Thank you! Oh gosh sometimes I wonder if I'm sane when I get my crazy ideas but it actually end up looking quite good. Color, miss-matching and things like that is my thing. :-)
