Boxes, baskets, bookcases and mags...

Lovely wicker basket with galvanised latch... filled with this year's hydrangea harvest,

Two battered deed boxes in need of attention with fabulous brass maker's label inside....

Pretty little old pine bookcase....ideal for a bedside,

A glazed bookcase or kitchen wall cupboard with original amber glass knobs,

And a large pine dresser now painted Annie Sloan French linen over white, great for a display of all white china I think....

All coming to my Fairs in the next few weeks....starting with Hexham , Northumberland tomorrow.
Priced. packed and ready to go...

And to sit nicely on these pieces of furniture....this month's Country homes and Interiors magazine,

 Featuring my gorgeous friend Helen....her donkeys...

And her to "die for " kitchen where just last week we had coffee and cupcakes round that very same table!

The other gorgeous magazine is the fabulous Danish Jeanne D'Arc Living...

Won in a most generous giveaway from Ali @ Betty and Violet

I am thrilled!

So tonight I will be hunkering down reading how to transform furniture...

Swooning over Raw & Natural bedrooms...

 And wishing I had another house to play Scandinavian style re -decorating...

  1. All looks so lovely!! I adore Hydrangeas-I think they are by far my fav flower!! Good luck, with the fairs.XXX

  2. Lots of lovely stock for your fairs - the little pine bookcase would come home with me if I lived closer!

  3. Wish I could grow hydrangeas like that they are gorgeous, I have to beg one of my neighbours every year for some of hers!! I love the little pine bed side table and the cupboard with the amber knobs. I must get Country Homes, Helen's kitchen looks stunning. Jeanne D'Arc magazine makes me want to paint everything white....not practical with a husband, son and four Pugs! Have a great week Julie.

  8. What a lovely array of things you have to take to Hexham...I'm sure they won't last too long on the stall before parting company with you.

  9. I'm trying hard to catch up with you and your lovely treasures Julie, but just at the moment Fairs are like those well-known buses - either none at all or several on one day!

  10. Love all the items in here. Must slip into bookstore to have this magz after work. :) Got my eye on your next posts.
