Antiques – My Sunday Photo 13/05/17

I have a little secret to confess. I am a bit of an antiques program addict. Bargain Hunt, Antiques Roadtrip, Dickinsons Real Deal, I love them all.

I am also quite keen on nosing around antique shops with Mr A on the weekend.

This weekend we popped into Chepstow and had a nose around the antiques shops there. These  two caught my eye as  they were  antiques and would look fabulous in any steampunk display too.

    We have a really fantastic antiques quarter in Sheffield. It’s a lovely place to spend a Saturday afternoon exploring! #MarvMondays

    I love antique programmes too, you’re not alone! Hehe. I like the balloon. I’m not sure I’d want the other one in my house – although it would certainly be a talking point 🙂 #MySundayPhoto

    The goat bust thingie made me chuckle as it reminds me of the horses head I saw on Eurovision just now 🙂

    Who on earth came up with the goat bust idea? Would love to see this in someone else’s house #MySundayPhoto

      Yeah, you do have to wonder at the mind that came up with that idea 😂

    Both so different and yet statement pieces that would look wonderful in the right setting. My Mother in law has an antique business and I love poking around her shop.

    I love the look of these two antiques too – I’m not surprised they caught your eye! I especially love the colours of the balloon 🙂

      If I had any money today they would have both came home with me. Next week hopefully they will x
