Sam’s Bday Lunch at Bistro 98

27 May

Recently taken over from Jackie Rey’s Mange Tout, Althea’s Bistro 98 is a treat for the sense’s. First of all the venue at the Dunkirk Estate in Salt Rock is just totally gorgeous and the food was divine. Had to share some pics with you all and wish our Sammy a Happy, Happy Birthday!

Trio of Italian Porcelain Owls – SOLD

24 May

Made by ‘Antonio Velutto Rome’, totally fell in love with this ‘not so little’ owl family. Selling them separately as one of the larger owls has a hairline crack down its side, so will be a bit cheaper then the others. For all you owl collectors out there, or whimsical woodland collectors, these guys are just the BOMB!!!!

Large owl in mint condition – R200
Large owl with hairline crack – R175
Small owl in mint condition – R125

Please note they all have gold tips and in some place’s the gold is rubbing off.

Vintage Deer Planters

22 May

I have 2 of these cuties for sale. Deer’s are hugely collectable at the moment and these 2 are just the epitome of vintage chic. They are identical, apart from their colouring. One is a creamy colour and the other a darker orangy colour. The darker deer has a small chip on his ear and is priced at R20 less (see the attached photo) They are both marked underneath with Le Italy.

R160 for the cream
R140 for the orangy with chipped ear

Vintage Flip Side Toaster – SOLD

22 May

So collectable and gaining in value, these flip side toasters are a real vintage find. But what made me snap this one up without a moments hesitation, was that it looks just like a ROBOT. How cool would this look displayed in a funky kitchen. The cord will need replacing if you want to make it functional, but just displayed would look totally cool.
