Antique Weekend

Morning my darlings! How was your weekend? Mine was jam packed with activities and I simply can't believe it's Monday again, I feel like the last couple of days just flew by. I had an amazing time at a barbecue on Saturday night, but somehow between dancing and taking pictures of my friends jumping in the river (yes they really did, it was one of those lazy spring nights), I came home to find my blue rose missing. I only had it for a week, but I grew attached to it pretty quickly, and am sad to loose it. Right now am picturing it floating alone on the river, I hope somebody worthy of it's uniqueness finds it.

Sunday was another antique day, so of course I had to go.
I think these will look amazing on a terracotta patio.
I literally gasped for this lantern. My friends thought I was crazy, but I think it's beautiful, no?
Adorable gravy boat, yes?
This, I love!
I would have liked to see a whole set of these, they are really pretty.
These two vases particularly caught my eye because they looked out of place in the market. I really like them.
It's beautiful, isn't it?
This was my favourite find of the day! It's so vintage meets fairytale. It isn't made for just any old decor, but in the right setting, it would steal the show.
I got caught in the rain without an umbrella, so I wrapped my scarf around my head. Don't I look so Arabian night? Please believe that the setting and the picture was accidental, we just happened to be near the carpet stall when the rain really started to hit. A stylish accident all the same. No, the scarf isn't from the market, it was a gift from my dad, and he bought it in London.

Am really considering ditching the whole umbrella thing and getting more oversize scarves, am really digging this look, and it's quite practical and stylish, especially if the rain is not that heavy.

So which one of my antique finds, is your favourite?

    My weekend was great Ijeoma. I got to wear my traditional attire at a work function after such a long time. I like the 2 colourful vases. Lovely. And yes, you do look like an Arabian in that photo.

  2. Hi dear Ijeoma! Everything is so beuatiful! I had a nice Sunday too, but I spend the whole day at home. Xoxo

  3. Cheers for your comments my lovelies, am happy to hear you had great weekends, and there's nothing like spending the whole day at home relaxing. A home staycation I believe?
