I am a collector. of stuff. i have a passion for collecting bits of anything really. over the years, I have collected wooden spoons, rolling pins, mixing bowls. I have gathered bits from op-shops, flea markets, antique shops and even bought things over seas on my travels. I have been known to collect sugar bowls, buttons, baskets. And of course religious relics & icons. And now i have to pack them all up.. and move house.. a smaller house in fact and this is wherein the problem lies.
I have too much stuff. and I want most of it to go to other people who will love it just like I do.
for this reason I have given away sea grass chairs & french wire potato baskets instead of selling them. Because I can choose the owner.. I can tell if someone will cherish the bits just like I have..
to mark the packing and moving from Inglewood, over the next weeks, I have decided to give little bits away here, to my blogging friends. to celebrate these 10 yrs living here at Inglewood and also the journey of Inglewood via the blog..
I have so many vintage treasures that I would love to share. I have vintage aprons, tea cloths, a jar of buttons.. and other such stuff.. all junk to most.. but each a treasure to me.. and I hope to you also!
so keep your eyes open!
the first one is a cute little vintage jug and saucer from a childs old tea set. it is only a tiny 4 inches high. let me know if you would like to have a chance at owning it.
then to the names for our new home: there are a few so far that have come to mind.. but still nothing solid.. here are the first few in my notebook:
SANCTUAIRE - French for sanctuary ~ which I hope to create in the new home & garden
LISIEUX - the birth place of St.Therese (she is my Saint of choic and the one who is with me always)
LA PETITE FLEUR - French for the little flower ~ St Therese was also known as the little flower.. and I hope to have many of them in my garden.
what do you think of these names?
