This weekend I went to Parys for a wee bit with my mom and dad, who live in Zimabawe, so I don’t get to see them too often, which makes me very sad. We had to go fetch some stuff from there for my dad’s work, so I didn’t have much time for all the shops, but I did managed to gather a few beauties before I whizzed home with my folks and a bag of flipping fatty biltong mmmmmmmmmm. There is a new shop that has opened up in town that has so much cool ‘junk’ in it. I was like a kid in an antique store, ok let me re-write that sentence cause that doesn’t make any sense – I was like an Angie in an antique store. Yes, better.
The beautiful pale blue and brass sweet bowl below, came from there. I love this colour combo, there is something about this shade of blue that makes me feel like a baby bird in a nest of amazing. The stamp on the back says Kendal, Old Foley, I think, unless my eyes deceive me. I wish I knew more about stamps and names and stuff. I guess I could Google it. Yes I could.
I found this pretty deer print, which is a nice add to my picture collection.
And then I also bought this little skunk. Look at her, she can spin all the way around her mini jungle gym. She was hiding behind a bunch of stuff in the store, but I managed to sniff her out and now she’s sitting happy in my cabinet at home. There is no stamp on her, just a mark of awesome.
Picked these 2 sweet little rose and gold plates up for a steal. R20 each. I also found an amazing old school farm house metal sieve, which I forgot to take a picture of, I will post that one up tomorrow…
