Vintage bits

Warning: image overload.
I acquired a few new old vintage pieces lately.

I bought this old chemical bottle from a little store called Rust and Co.
I printed out and attached a vintage label to make it look a little more interesting.

This cute Australian silver plated milk jug was too cute to leave at the tip shop at a mere $3.50.
I know, how could I not bring it home? I like its simplicity and it makes a nice vessel for some pretty iceberg roses.

I think my birdies approve.

My last acquisition was given to me by Mum and Dad. It's a great little old camera, owned and presumably used by one of my relatives many years ago.

I love the detailing.

So, some nice bits to add to the collection.
By the way, thank you for your comments about the market. I will be giving more details soon. I have so much to do!
Keep warm xx

  6. Oh, Sarah, we have to go shopping together some time soon! I have been meaning to get to Courtney's shop for ages - that bottle is a gorgeous find. You clever cookie, thinking of printing out that old label to add to it. Ooh, I need a printer! And that milk jug just is divine. Time to make a date, my friend ☺. J x

  8. Love your finds Sarah, I haven't been to rust & co for ages so I should go again! Your roses are lovely too, I've noticed a few blooms coming out around the place this week, even a tiny bit of blossom in st david's park which I walk through every day so I'm quite excited about that!
