Tuesday Treasures

A couple of little treasures that have found their way into our home over recent weeks.

The little gold frame on the left I bought on Etsy as part of a set of four (you may have seen this on the front cover of my Vogue the other week - the print in this one is my favourite). I couldn't resist, they're so pretty and despite all my hunting around flea markets, antique and bric a brac shops and op shops I haven't seen anything like them before.

The ginger jar I bought at my local antique shop (not everything in there is by definition 100 years old, it's mostly full of things from the 70's and 60's and this vase definitely isn't antique but it was a great price and something I've been after for a while).

Now this fresh flowers girl has gone a little faux (in some areas) and these beautiful rich plum coloured hydrangeas are in fact not real, however they do a wonderful job of looking stunning and that's good enough for me! :-)

Today I have joined My Uncommon Slice of Surburbia for Tuesday's Treasures.
Wishing you a treasure filled Tuesday.


  1. I adore little vintage frames like that and yes they are hard to come by here.

    You would never tell the hydrangeas weren't real...they look the part to me.

  2. My grandma has a ginger jar EXACTLY the same as that one... I've always loved it!
