flowers and fleamarkets.
something holland isn't short of. last weekend was a fleamarket frenzy of sorts. we hit two big markets, one on saturday (at my boyfriend's football team's stadium) and the other slightly hungover (at a favourite snuffel markt) on sunday. both were fruitful trips and my pocket was lighter by only a tidy 11 euros. we appear to have become magnets for west german pottery and with the prices just right, we've collected three over the past week. i remember admiring their colourful textures back in australia but the price, Larry, was definately not right. now i border the country where the beautiful vases are made, so they flourish happily at my local markets and thrift stores. my local flower markets have also provided me with a myriad of pastel beauties as of late and as spring is fast approaching, the incredible ranunculus, tulips and hyacinths are becoming a necessary weekly purchase.
our third west german find of the week with a side serving of marimekko.
these guys are incredible.
powder pink carnations. filler flowers, yeah right.
i could dive right in.
a flemarket at the football stadium. the boy and i were both in heaven.
for 80c, these two were coming home with me.
as soon as the seller found out i was from queensland, he was bagging these babies up for a euro. bargain.
a cute collection for 2 euros from the local thrift shop.
staffordshire potteries and pastel plates, come to me.
perfect sunday behaviour.
my 9 euro treats.
design perfection for a euro.
i think i took a photo every half an hour of these blooming beauties.
so affordable and so beautiful.
