What I found at the Fair

It's always exciting when the annual antiques fair comes to my small country town especially when it's  just over the fence ! My husband was away and surprised me with a gift of money before he left to buy something....yay
I chose  2 things..

a pair of antique chemist bottles

an original Victorian mirror frame with original photo

the 2 beautiful books were my own purchase

  1. Oh Meg! Those chemist bottles are exquisite! As is that original frame and photo! But I just got lost in your garden landscape! I could look at that all day and I bet you just love how the light changes throughout your garden! Stunning!!! Nicole xo

  2. Your finds are always such a delight, I love the frame. Your garden is an oasis of calm and beauty, stunning!!!

  3. My wife's grandfather was a doctor, and she inherited some chemists' bottles similar to yours. We like them. The hills look gorgeous with the sun shining on the deep green and the various colored trees. I love the misty morning picture especially. I want to pet your sleeping kittie and say hello to your girls! It's always a treat to visit. Oh, and the book covers are wonderful. Back then, they had so much character, even if they didn't echo the stories inside.

  4. I love the chemist bottles and the books but that mirror frame is beautiful Some great finds there xxx

  5. Lovely post! I also collect chemist bottles and yours were really lovely...
