It's a bit racist, to be honest! See the Annie Lennox version after the jump!....

Further to my last post, I've since bought another piece of furniture! I bought this Edwardian art nouveau dressing table from eBay for £50 - I think it's an absolute bargain as you can't buy new flat-pack MDF bedside drawers for under £75....I love it and can't wait to show you all the pictures when it is installed into my bigger house! xxx

I'm in the process of moving to a larger house and felt I needed a few bits of furniture to fill the space! So, I bought this Victorian wash stand off eBay for £50. I'm in love with it and can't wait to put it in my new house. I love the little mirror on the top - it's so unusual and very shabby chic!

I really love 'paper moon' postcards and images. I recently saw these old German postcards for sale on eBay and had to have them! I love the colors that have been painted over the image, they are super sweet and would look great in a 'shabby chic' vintage French style room. These can easily be picked up at charity shops, antique markets and online for small amounts of money. More pictures after the jump.......

My new favourite find - in time for Easter! All dressed for Spring this vintage inspired rabbit is ready to hop into my house this Spring! Made of reproduction vintage paper and decoupaged on a custom cut board in the same silhouette. With a beautiful yellow bow - I will put more pictures up when he is settled into his new house! :) What do you think I should call him? Leave a suggestion for me!

It was Mother's Day on Sunday and I gave my Mum a bangle and earrings - in the form of her favourite sweets - Liquorice Allsorts - they are so lifelike and realistic I was tempted to put them in my mouth to check they really were actually handmade using a special art clay. Yum!

I am in love with this furniture that was recently listed on Ebay. Sadly, I didn't win the auction, but have decided to transform some old furniture and imitate the finish used on these chest of drawers. You can pick up any old 'brown' type furniture cheaply and transform it using no more than a paintbrush, some paint and a few new knobs! More information on transforming furniture can be found on the blog 'My Romantic Home'; http://romantichome.blogspot.com/2007/08/painting-furniture-step-by-step.html
