Every time I visit Norfolk I always get a little bit excited about the things I might find and what bargains might come home with me. I was lucky this visit to find quite a few lovely things - firstly this pastel blue cakestand, which I found in the beachside cafe we visited - The Funky Mackerel in Sheringham. They have a fab little 'rummage room' - you never know what your going to find!
The cakestand is a Johnsons Bros Greydawn and was a bargain I thought at £6.
It goes with another blue utility cake stand which I have already at home. Im planning on using them for when we get married next year.
Also in the rummage room were some gorgeous pastel dinner plates, both of the sets were far too reasonable to leave behind!
I also got lucky in a little antique china shop spotting this Johnsons Bros sandwich platter (I think thats what it is - if anyone knows leave me a comment!) for a whole two quid!
In the same shop I also found this lovely vintage embroidered tablecloth which matches exactly one that my mum has. Unfortunately my poor photography doesn't show it off to its best, it really is lovely.
Lastly, on a day out to Holt (my favourite place for a rummage) I found a couple of pretty vintage hankies, three mini pyrex rose bowls, and a gorgeous gorgeous saucer and plate - sadly no cup to be seen, but they are really sweet as a pair, and who knows one day I may find the matching cup!
I have a plan for these (I think!) I had seen on Selina Lake's lovely wedding post where she ties vintage floral hankies together to make bunting. This brilliant idea has stuck with me and I am hoping to find at least a few more hankies to make a little string of bunting. I really love Selina's styling, she just has a fabulous eye for it. I have her new book Pretty Pastel style and am completely in love with it! Its totally my kind of book, so much inspiration and eye candy!
The last thing we bought, which was something we really needed was a new bedside table, we found it in a shop in Holt, we didn't see it at first as there was a load of junk on top of it, but after clearing it off and pulling it out we thought it would be perfect. The fact that it was already painted in a pretty pastel green helped too, as thats one job I'm not keen on!
I think we will change the handles for something a bit nicer, but for now it is on my side of the bed!
Prettied up by some rather cute CK tins which I got free as I had been spending far too much of my money in there recently - oops! Also on my bedside are my colourful bits of jewellery, which I wear everyday. I've tried to minimize the clutter on my bedside as it was all looking a bit messy.
So those are my vintage goodies from Norfolk,
I had such a fab time but it now feels like absolutley ages ago that we went!
Until next time Norfolk...thanks for the memories :)
