Taking a Break

We both needed a break from selling the house especially with the first house open on Saturday so we took Thursday off for Mr VL's birthday. We spent a gorgeous day in the Adelaide hills  and stopped for lunch at a wonderful Italian resturant( YUM raspberry brulee)
I found this delicious little white scalloped afternoon tea tablecloth in a little opshop

On the way home from the trip we bought 4 bunches of glorious flowers to put around the house for the open house...I LOVE autumn
And the little white table in the guest bedroom needed just a little extra touch..Ispied this at the local gift shop on the sale table
Another 2 little French leather bound books arrived in my letterbox for my collection from my favourite  French Ebay seller. I have 6 now ..It gives me goosebumps to handle a book 300 years old and only around $10

  1. The French books are so lovely in their leather. I can just smell that old book aroma.

  2. We share common interests - vintage linens, flowers and old books. (vintage linens) (old books)

    and flowers are all over my blog. I'm looking forward to checking out more of your blog.

  3. What a great way to spend time. Sharing time with your love ones and finding so many great things.

  4. Sounds like a really relaxing time. I love the books, so beautiful! You find the best treasures.

  5. That table cloth is beautiful, as are those roses! I like the books too! Have a great weekend!

  6. Gorgeous finds and I especially love the books. I hunt for them all the time, but they are so hard to find. I host a party called Inspire Me Tuesday and it goes live every Monday evening. I would love for you to link up any of your projects. Hugs, Marty
