After the hideousness of my last post I thought I should post something pretty.
These are some of my recent vintage purchases.
The beautiful glass heart buttons came from Etsy. They're foil-backed, made in Germany just following the war. When the first card came in the post I was so surprised at their beauty I had to order another!
Also from the same seller (Bumbershoot Designs) came these tiny glass flower buttons you can see above.
I went to Glenorchy Market on Sunday and amongst all the trashy stalls I found one that had really interesting things. Lots of vintage fabrics, kitchenalia and mid-century designs. I found this little teapot, made in England, that so reminds me of one my sister and I used when we were little and had tea parties. It was only $5 :)
Another bargain is the silk fabric they're all placed on. It's lovely and thick with a floral self-print and was only $10 a metre!! When I bought it I planned on making a teacosy but have just been too slack. I really do need a little project so should commit to it :)
