Goodies 2

So my glee in Belfast’s sources continued on Sunday in the most excellent collaborative of iconic, collectible vintage and retro pieces I have ever seen under one roof, at the Retro Rooms. There are lots of great photos at this link, but here are my most covetable, jaw dropping, stamp-my-feet-i-want-it items.

I have a chair fetish, and here are two of the best samples in the best colours I have ever seen in real life!

A pair of these Vintage Danish 1970 swivel Egg Chairs in Danish Blue wool from Original Compulsive Design..

And here is what I got.. this image care of Frock Around the Clock blog

Coupe Glasses


Peuter Candleabra

I was delighted to meet the lady at It’s Vintage Darling, who hales from my townland Co. Armagh, with wares from her Armagh shop, and got this long hunted for candleabra complete with pink candles, yum. And Coupe champagne glasses, a collectable for me..Cant wait to visit..

Finally no day out is complete without a few remnants..

Crochet blanket


This mustard crochet blanket funks up a tired old chair in the nursery..


And unless Im mistaken this pink and mint lace linen is quite original, or else died in the wash! Love it.

Baby pink linen

Hints of Pink


Picks out my touches of pink very well.
