New finds.

Yesterday I found this box with stamps, so vintage looking and pink.. the shops really know how to catch me, I had to have it... now back to writing letters so I can use the stamps.
I found them at 'Pottery-barn'.

 I'll try to find ink-pads that can be used on material, so I can stamp gift bags or lavender sachets.

 In the same shop I found these little plates, they look so nice with my old pocket-watches.

My inspiration comes from Shabby Chic and French style decoration books and lots, I mean LOTS, of magazines.

Fake flowers can still look nice, in Holland we used to have fresh flowers all around the house but here the flowers are very expensive, wilt in a few days and the buds never open so I get mine from SIA when on sale.

I just Love these...

Today I will be joining with, Show and tell Friday, Favorite things Friday and Frugalicious Friday.


  1. Hi Angela! I discovered your blog via Feathered Nest! I adore your watch plates! Where did you find them? I also would love to know where you purchased your French stamps? I would love to start stamping, too, and want to make sure I buy the right kind --- along with the right type of ink stamp. Did you find the fabric ink stamp pad you were looking for? Would you email me with any advice you could give me? Thanks, girlie! :)
