flea market finds

i've been so busy with photography recently, and saving so that i can upgrade my camera and still afford our trip to france next month, that i have been avoiding opshops as much as possible. of course, i can't always resist, so here are the few little things i have found this week:

this green vase (the green doesn't really show on the photo)
is delightful, it's really pretty with flowers in it

i've always wanted one of those, so i was really pleased when i found it

ok, this is an interesting one. not to everyone's taste i know,
but i like it's looks, it's quite quirky.
and no, we won't have a bird in it! it's for my bedroom,
the base is the colour of my wallpaper
and i will paint the metal in cream. i think it will look really nice.
oh, and the stand will be used on our deck, with a pot plant hanging on it perhaps.

don't forget to look at sophie's blog (here) to see the weekly finds of other seekers of vintage treasures.
