First of all, sorry for the ridiculous amount of time that has passed since the last post!  Not sure where the time went…

Moving forward though, spring is fast approaching (although winter just got here!) and we’ve just got a bunch of pieces in, many of which would look great up at the cottage.  Without further ado, here’s a selection: 

blue bench

This bench has a great colour and good proportions – comfortable to sit on but high enough that in winter you could tuck baskets underneath for hats and scarves.  Behind it: large blown-glass vases and carved oblong wood troughs. 

hooks I  hooks II

A sweet assortment of vintage folky iron hooks.


An assortment of small wooden shelves and things.  See the house in the middle?  The glass front slides out so it would make a very sweet little display box.

DSCF0254  pair sidetables II

Two sets of side tables, both with vintage faux-grain paint finishes – the ones on the left are a faux bird’s eye finish. 

pair chairs

Pair of armchairs – really nice size, not too large or heavy.

toy pram

Vintage toy pram.


5 of these heavy solid brackets with a simple, clean profile.

table & chairs

Wire table & chairs with marble top…just like those little champagne cork chairs that are so fun to make:

pine table

Long pine table with orange legs and refinished pine top.


Little carved wooden deer head with real antlers.


Leaded glass door with matching window (not pictured).


Old shutters from The Distillery’s Gooderham & Worts buildings.

stools & mailbox

Assortment of little stools, and that metal box sitting on the right is an old vintage eastern European mailbox.


Gothic oak mantle.

…and lots more…

Next post will follow soon!
