Friday Flowers


I was very lucky to be given these pretty mottled roses from a friend today. I arranged them in a pretty yellow vase we have at Black & Spiro. I placed them next to our beautiful vintage lamp and shade {note the beautiful embroidery on the shade} on a table in the shop and then a very lucky young lady came into the shop with her mum and her sister and they took the lamp home for her bedroom. I am sad to see this beautiful one-off vintage lamp go but I know it will be loved and cherished by it's next owner...

Happy Weekend. See you next time.

Hi Anna,

I finally finished my PhD so I'm back blogging again. I can't wait to catch up with what I've missed on your blog for the past year. I'll be in Brisbane in two weeks' time so I'll try and get to your shop x

That is the most beautiful lamp and lamp shade. Do you think you will get anything similar in your shop again?

These are great colours they really remind my of indian pictures of deities - saturated green blues yelows and pink. Very cool

I feel the same way all the time when an item sells at my shop. I get sort of attached to specific items and it's tough to see them go. : ) But, I know they are going to a new owner who'll love and care for them. : ) Cheesy, I know!
