New Treasures for 2012

After a lovely Christmas and New Year I feel ready to get back in the swing of things, namely up and coming fairs.  I have booked some lovely fairs to do already this year and the list is growing despite me saying I would do less...famous last words!  Before Christmas I said in one of my posts that I had purchased some lovely items from a lovely lady called Renata who lives in Vienna, her blog is style revisited should you want to take a peak.

A lovely pair of old worn pointe shoes.

A pretty vintage floral ballet diadem.

The lace up boots have to be my favourites though, they are exquisitely made.
On New years Eve hubby and I decided to have a day out as we were suffering from 'cabin fever' after being cooped up over Christmas.  We ended up at Stafford Antiques Fair, not too far from home.  It was three halls filled to the brim with beautiful antiques.

This beautiful Victorian wire work and bisque floral ring was so pretty I couldn't resist.  The wire work is all rusty and aged just how I like it.  It looks stunning as a centrepiece on a table with a large pillar candle in placed in the centre.

This beautiful Victorian boned bodice was purchased from another seller.  It does look lovely on my mannequin but I will be selling these two items on at a fair this year as I have decided I can't keep everything!  Happy New Year to all of you and have a great week.

    P.S. Would be lovely to see you "up north" in 2012 if you can make it.

  3. You have found some more wonderful things there. It is difficult parting with things isn't it? Happy New Year to you.

  4. Hi Jo, I love all your beautiful things, especially the boned bodice. I was treated to a bespoke Victorian style corset/basque for Christmas, it actually gives me back my waist again ( breathing is a problem tho')! Have a very happy beginning to 2012 Jane x
