Country Treasures

We splurged a little this week in our favourite country town shop
First find is a large and chippy 1930's blanket box with the sweetest bun feet and carved details

 I'm going to use it as a coffee table although Mr VL is complaining it to high for him to put his feet on....SIGHHHHHHH!!

An old wooden violin case with nice brass fittings

An old tool tin which I have planted up already with succulents

Wild weather this week...


    Fogged in


Lots of fresh straw to keep warm

We are taking off to Daylesford in Victoria next in a couple of days, to stay in a Bed and Breakfast called Hill House, for a couple of days and then on to Melbourne for 4 days

  1. The blanket box is gorgeous, perfect for a coffee table. Hubby's feet shalt have no place on coffee tables. :) Enjoy your stay in Daylesford, it's one of my favourite places to visit.

  2. Such lovely finds. I'm really taken with the woven wicker lampshades at Hill House. But where could I find a space in my house for something similar?

  7. Sounds like a lovely little get away. Hill House looks like a very relaxing place to stay. :)
    That quilt box is amazing! And I am totally copying your succulent idea in a tool box. Watch for a new post... :)
    Thanks for sharing with Fresh-Cut Friday!

  8. Oh my, what treasures you found. The succulents look fantastic in that old metal drawer--genius! Your landscape photographs are gorgeous, simply gorgeous, Meg. I just added my name to your email list :) Hope your vacation is grand!
