{Bargain at the antique}



Saturday afternoon I took a walk at the antique market with Mr B. We were looking for something special, and at the end we found it.

Where I live, we are not used to have antique market every sunday but only a weekend per month and if you love to bargain, or just walking around old furnitures, fabrics, vintage clothes, old jewels and accessories like I love this is a bit unnoying!


However...

A sunny saturday helped us on our treasure hunt... Mr B has his own ideas on how to decor the house so we have to reach compromises to not fight for everything! He trust me and my style. He knows I won't put ribbons and flowers everywhere: it won't be a girlish house!


Mr B. looking for 2 chairs!

Beautiful china and white porcelaine.









Old Cryistal chandelier, perfect for my entrance!



My favourites object ever... I've collected so many pieces in the last period, bought at Nice brocante, on Etsy, on Ebay and got them from my granny! I could sell them!




Porcelaine knobs for my old furniture.


This is our treasure, 2 old french chairs. Mr B was really excited , he bargained a bit and then we took them at home! He wants to use it for his desk, I'd love to use them as nightstands... Who's going to win?

What makes you argue with your boyfriend/husband?

Love

p.s. : don't miss this week oh, hello friend giveaway... it's quite nice and I'd love to be the lucky winner!

  5. belleee! Io ne ho due simili a b&b ma le vorrei anche a casa: non è facile trovarle in italia, pensavo di dover tornare in francia (ogni scusa è buona) ma vedo che se si gira un pò anche qui si trovano buoi acquisti...Ottimo acquisto!

  7. io adoro il lampadario con le gocce! Per fortuna sull'arredamento non ho mai litigato col mio amore ma sull'uso del telecomando sì ( e spesso..).
    Sono troppo curiosa di vedere tutte le belle cosine con cui arrederete il vostro nido !
