My fireplace was a moving in present from my Nan & Grandad and is from eBay. When I fall in love with something I don't even think about measuring it and neither does my mum. When my cousin went to pick the fireplace up it wouldn't fit in the car and after dismantling it and dropping it off to me I realised that the fire was meant to fit into an old fireplace and not to sit flush against a new wall. Well that wasn't going stop me. My poor step dad had to attach it to the wall and then build an MSF 'box' around it to hide the fact it didn't really fit. The wooden mantle piece was originally painted in a horrible dark varnish so my Dad painted it a nice fresh white for me.
The 'Keep Calm and Carry on' picture was £10 from Wilkinsons and the mirror around £25 from Matalan. You can't really see in the picture but the mirror's frame is beautiful and has antique style detailing around it. The vintage brass ducks were £25 from a Recycling Shop in Stratford.
These knitted cakes sit on my mantle piece and were made by my mum. The vintage cake stand was from a vintage shop in Brick Lane and was only £8, which I thought was cheap for London prices.
My TV unit was from Ikea years ago and I rescued it from our garage when I moved into my new house.On the shelves I have all sorts of bits and bobs; A plastic vintage terrier dog bought from The Northampton Vintage and Homemade Fair for £3, a quartz Buddha given to me by my Dad, some vintage cake stands I picked up from carboot sales, some decorative hearts, a metal Scottie dog with angel wings brought back from America for me by my Nan and a vintage saucer that my Mum decorated with the words 'Dolly Bird'.
Hope you enjoyed yourittle tour xxx
