Remember the little blogpost I did 2 weeks ago on inspiration from magazines? I ended it with a piece of art glass display I was so inspired by…

Since my first art glass purchase 2 years ago, I have really loved it but couldn’t afford the big dollars for it of recent, esp with the resurgence of 1950s interiors.

This weekend, I went shopping at my favourite place to shop in Australia: Mill Markets, Geelong, Victoria. I spent a total of $90 on a few things from there and some other secret place:

Set of 6 silver dessert silver spoons, 4 art glass vases, 1 art glass pink compote, 1 Wedgwood China mug, 2 tiny blue French perfume bottles, 1 Laura Ashley flower border. Not a bad haul!

Now I have my own none too shabby art glass collection (I had just 4 for a long long time scattered around the house).

So now my “boudoir” dressing table place has these 2 cute French perfume bottles!

I bought that wallpaper border roll not to wallpaper my rooms… but they make excellent wrapping paper paraphernalia!

Do not give me the third degree about the Merry Christmas wrapping paper in March 2009. It’s Hannah’s birthday today, she’s only 3 years old… she can’t read quite yet… and she doesn’t care about the exterior of gifts.

And my new fireplace display has evolved a few steps…

I think I love this fireplace arrangement best.
