Sunday Flea Market Finds

Well I actually held a stall at the local flea market today and although I was very well behaved and didn't spend all my profits I did pick up this little cutie
It's a lovely old ceramic butter dish from Norway.  I stumbled across this at just the right time because I've recently decided not to have margarine in my house any more after watching a story on the destruction of natural forests in Borneo to make way for Palm Oil plantations (palm oil is widely used in margarine and many other food and household products) and is greatly threatening the Orangutan population.  Check out the story here   So I'll need to have a fresh supply of butter softened in the mornings for breaky...don't you just hate rock hard butter!

My other two magnificent finds for the weekend were from a little garage sale just around the corner from my place.  I could not believe my luck when I stumbled upon these two glorious finds!
Gorgeous full length mirror $5!!!

Equally gorgeous buffet (to match my other two hehe) $10!!!
I can't believe how lucky I was to pick these up and in fabbo condition as well.  Gotta love a good garage sale.

  1. Very cute butter dish! The buffet is wonderful - it's great to be able to decorate a home with these fabulous vintage pieces. I've picked up some 1920s dressing tables and bureau at the op shop and I just love them.

  2. that butter dish is an utter delight & the mirror absolutely perfect LOVE LOVE it rxx
