working so well for the mushrooms and hearts! I've started on one end and quite happy with how its coming along. It's been a long time since I sat and did some embroidery and I found it quite relaxing and it made the weekend seem to slow into an old fashioned simplicity
We heard news of an antique shop closing down in Benalla, which I knew had a number of those lovely old fashioned lamps we love - she agreed to open the shop especially for Pete and I to head over for a visit on Saturday ........ it was worth her while! Pete was excited by the types of lamps she had there from an old
estate ...... ones I'd been trying to tell him about, but its never the same until you see things in their splendour ........ we came home with 7 Old Fashioned pieces of Loveliness that will eventually be finding homes in the rooms of our old queenslander home up North. The white is milk glass. With these additions that should take care of lamps for a very long time!
Two are large double burners that stand quite tall. I think we definitely have a lamp for every room now!

I also found a lovely wooden blanket stand that just had to come back home with me as well - Iplan on having it in our bedroom up north. Unfortunately you get to see my ironing pile and any number of other bits sitting in the current sewing/crafting space of this house ...... WIP that need more emphasis on the "Work" bit of it lol I'm missing not having the extra bits of furniture to be able to put things away in, but when we sent them all north back in June last year I hadn't anticipated how much more stuff we might accumulate between then and whenever we do end up selling!! There are things jammed everywhere as you can see from the white cupboard below!!
Before I finish here you get one last photo of the lamps, since Pete enjoyed putting them all into a line I just couldn't not get a photo of that! Have a great week everyone, Hugs Sharm
