this week's finds & happenings

my week began with a long awaited trip to Ikea with my "fav
Ikea shopping buddy" to check out this year's Chrissy dec's.
you might have seen one of these crochet stars in my previous post.

these cute crowns are very "Rachel Ashwell" don't you think?
so pretty popped on a table, hung on the tree, or atop a bottle of wine.
i love a bit of paisley, so had to grab a packet of these glittery dec's.
each year, i like to hang a little Chrissy decoration off my wrapped pressies.
i might use these this year.
here they sit in my newest milk glass find.
in a couple of weeks it will be time to get the house looking festive!

yesterday i did my first craft and arts market stall.
my tea cup candles were very popular!

my friend Bek is a talented sewer, and had a stall full of beautiful
children's clothes.

it was then home to get the house ship shape for a bit of a dinner party.
i'm kicking myself for not getting some pics with the guests!
we had a ball and sat outside all evening. the weather was lovely.
a market find from this morning.
a huge tray marked on the back 'made in India'.
i'm thinking it will end up in the middle of my coffee table stacked with candles.
after a couple of 4:30am morning starts, i'm
thinking a nanna nap is in order for this afternoon!
enjoy doing whatever it is you love this Sunday :)

  1. Wow Kate your stall looks really amazing. Hope you did really well. Loving those stars and your home is looking so gorgeous. x

  2. Love your home! Is that RG tableware? Looks fab out the back there. I need to find some trash and treasure markets, we end up at Chandler sometimes- the only one I know!
