I have the blues…..

It’s strange how somedays you seem to unintentionally home in on a certain colour, today it was shades of blue, from an Edwardian seagreen velvet armchair to a bottle green velvet long footstool, a blue & white Coalport meat plate, spongeware bowl and a pile of flags, and a lovely stripey cook book.

Unfortunately the idea is to buy to sell, however I love the chair, my Mum has spotted the stool, I collect spongeware & I love stripes, so maybe the only profit will be in the Coalport & flags.

Oh well I suppose it beats going to the high street sales and buying the same as everyone else!!

  2. I have never been able to resist buying an old armchair, and also collect spongware. It is really hard to part with finds that you love so much. I think if you keep things and enjoy them for a short time, then sell them on... best of both worlds! Abby xx

  6. The chair is gorgeous. I'm finding it hard to buy something I love and then sell!
