for the love of vintage, handmade & twee

As a girl I used to spend hours with my mother on the weekends searching through antique auctions and bric a brac stores. As an adult nothing much has changed, only how much I'm allowed to spend! This is my way of sharing my love with people who love good design and pretty little things.

My foray into the blogging world.

I must contribute this post to an old school friend of mine who has inspired me to venture into the world of blogging. Her blog caught my eye one day with a vibrant splash of colour and a beautiful eye for the stylish. From there I have delved into design blogs around the world who's love of beauty and design have mirrored and indulged my own. And so here I am months later wanting share my love of vintage and handmade pieces that are found and brought back to life in peoples homes.

For those who don't know me I have a small obsession with ladders. My brother constantly makes reference to the fact he doesn't think a ladder has a place in the home. To him I dedicate this blog.... The ladder in all it's revived glory. This is the true spirit of finding something unique and giving a sense of place in the home, plus you can pick one up for only about $20.

From Home Decor Genie. This one ticks a few of my boxes, love the leather chairs and love the zebra striped carpet too...

From a store in South Africa Froggatt and Frost, you could pick this up and put it straight into a country home.

This is fantastic. Not only a great idea for displaying your kitchen wares (I can see a beautiful old ladder with rusty hinges hung with copper pots and pans)it also makes a great feature in your kitchen.

This might be taking the ladder too far but do love the bold use. Warning if you want to try it you will need tall cielings to pull it off!
