I scouted around a number of op shops this week and was feeling a little despondent until I came across a couple of treasures that I knew would be right at home on my very humble bedroom dresser table. I say humble because the table was purchased by my mum via e-bay in a last minute bid that made it just "too good to be true". It's absolutely gorgeous and fits the room perfectly. Whilst I've played around a little with decorating it, the little adventurous fingers of my small children prevent me from displaying anything keep-sake or valuable. I thought I'd see if they could resist temptation for 24 hours, placing a few rings in the glass jewellery bowl but they literally disappeared in 5 seconds. I was smart enough to plant a few decoy jewellery pieces in the event that I was unable to find them again. My daughter has taken to putting everything in the toilet bowl so I was one step ahead of her (for a change). All my nice perfume, necklaces and earings are relegated to a very high cupboard where unfortunately because I struggle to see them, often don't get used.
My little items that I purchased this week include the glass jewelery bowl with the gold trim and the mirror that I've placed it on. In addition, I found this beautiful jug to add to my vast collection of jugs that I've rescued from Op shops and markets over the last few months.
Hope your flea market/op shopping was a successful one.
