Currently Coveting

Thrifting/bargain hunting is one of my very favourite things but sometimes I'm after something totally new to me.  This week I've been doing so much online window shopping I feel like I've been glued to my macbook and there are many, many things I'm coveting at the moment.  A lazy Saturday morning seemed the perfect time to post about some pretties I'm lusting after - the sun is out in force today and I'm appreciating my newly white walls all over again with so much light bouncing around and making the place feel airy!

I came across a beautiful online shop called An Angel At My Table and haven't been able to stop looking since, the first thing I'm wanting is this little sparrow made to perch on vases, lampshades, jars - you name it.  I'm thinking he'd look gorgeous perched atop a venetian glass frame I have.

Also from An Angel At My Table is this gorgeous, simple jewellery box in white.  I don't think a girl can ever have too many boxes like this as they're so functional but also such beautiful objects in themselves.

These candle holders from Graham and Green are firmly on the wish list; I haven't come across silvered glass/mercury glass in a charity shop or market yet so those are something I'd be more than happy to buy new!

I have some little round, brass coloured knobs on the built in cupboards in the bathroom that I'd love to swap for mismatched porcelain or glass ones though this mother of pearl one also caught my eye.

I stop by Not On The High Street far more often than is healthy but luckily one of the things I've been obsessing over most is out of stock; this little turquoise vase would add a gorgeous pop of colour to my white chest of drawers in the bedroom.

Hope you're all having a lovely Saturday so far!
Take care,
Jem xXx
