A Busy Week End

We finally had the electrician in to put up the last of our new light fittings to finish off our renovations. We are thrilled with the French inspired glass and zinc pendant lights!

 My latest globe ....vintage Rand McNally from the 1970's arrived in the mail....YAY

I popped into the second hand mall today and couldn't resist these to antique leather containers called minim measures. They date from the 1860's ...made in London from leather and would of held and etched glass tube in the centre for measuring medicine and a tumbler, and would be stored in a travelling case. Both for $8 !!

    I ve been on the lookout for old silver pieces for my Christmas table and I found another old piece at the Animal Welfare...a lovely old butter dish
