Market Flowers

As you will see from the photos below, I went to the market this weekend and bought some beautiful flowers, but as I was putting this post together I realised the first image has more vegetables in it than flowers... cabbage (kale) and a pumpkin,lol. Oh well, I love how they look and that's all that matters.








The cute wee pumpkin was an op. shop find last week for $5.



These chrysanthemums light up the room so beautifully. I bought the cane holder while I was at the market too. I had seen it before but decided it was a little more than I wanted to spend but this time it was on sale and I thought $19 was a pretty good price:o)



The fish were another op. shop find. Talk about eclectic style. I just buy what I like and hope to somehow make it all work!




I have been discovering the most wonderful new blogs lately and am looking forward to sharing them over the next while. To begin with I'd like to share Letitia's blog The White Shed
Letitia lives on a farm on the Yorke Peninsula just outside of Maitland, South Australia. She has a homeware gift and interior design business. The first 2 photos are of her shop which I am planning to visit next time we visit hubby's family in Adelaide, and the last photo is her dining room which made the front cover of Country Collections magazine. How awesome is that! Please pay her a visit and be inspired by her fabulous blog. I know I am.







So I guess you're wondering where that Country Collections Cover photo is. Well somehow I deleted it and I don't know how to get the photo to the bottom of the page again so you'll just HAVE to visit her blog to see it. You won't be disappointed, I promise.

You're a crack up Ange. I'm a bit the same with my op shop buying. You're supposed to buy what you love...the mixing and matching will work itself out in the end!

Hi Ange,
I am lucky that I live half an hour away from Letitia...Sad that it is I have yet to visit 'The White Shed'. (through no reason other than I am completely broke and know I will be tempted). My shopping list is ready and waiting for my visit.Until then, I dream....... x

Hi Ange, I love your pumpkin! The pears you liked on my blog would go well with them...they are actually some i bought for the centre of my table and they were in the pic because I was too lazy to move them off when I unwrapped the goodies from friday...we have the same taste you and I. I got them from lily G at Norman Park in Brisbane they also had apples aswell, I think they were about $10 dollars each. Lily g has a blog so you might be able to see if they still have some, cheers Katherine

Oh I love your Kale and Pumpkin pics Ange!! I also love your chrysanthemums and your ops shop finds. I think buying what you love, is what style is all about and I think yours is beautiful! I love your striped wall and wish our home did not have trim everywhere so I could paint stripes on my walls too! Hope you are having a lovely week ~ Tina xx

I love your floral arrangements and I like the white pumpkin. Thanks so much for visiting and the nicest of comments.

Millie said...

Great news about Letitia - a fellow South Aussie. I reckon at the moment our place would still get a knockback from Ramshackle Weekly magazine as being so scungy!!
