This September I’m moving from my childhood home of ten years to a much bigger, more modern house near Stamford, Lincolnshire. Naturally I have been on the look out for bits and bobs to put in my new room everywhere I shop.
The first things I picked up were two matching vintage glass bottles, one big bottle and one slightly smaller; they have cute little corks in the top and I think I’m going to fill them with really colourful sweets from my local sweet shop. This will hopefully add a bit of colour my white room, and give me something to munch on at night.
Matching the ‘vintage’ theme I also brought a white jewellery pot with an owl on the top. I’m forever losing sets of earrings so the theory is this pot will now be solely for earrings, in the hope that my new room will not be the place earrings go to die.
Alongside the bottles and my owl jewellery pot, I purchased a mint green vase to go on my windowsill; similar to the bottles, it will offer some colour. I obviously want to get some flowers to go in my vase but I’m not sure which type, I was thinking lilies but comment down below your favourite flower and I will see if I like any to go in my new vase!
I picked up all of these bits and bobs from antiques shops in and around Stamford, I love the idea of having something no one else does, something aged and individual. All of these cost me less than ten pounds and I appreciate that none of you can go out and buy an exact match, but I hope I have inspired you to check out some of YOUR local antiques stores because they are so underrated yet so cheap!

I will upload pictures when I move into my new house, with loads more new nick nacks, and hopefully do them more justice than that photo does 🙂
