Shabby Style Treasures.

I have just received a wonderful parcel of goodies that I bought from Phyllis at Shabby in the City. Every Friday she has a flea market and sells wonderful vintage treasures via her blog. Even though we live miles apart, this beautiful print of a flapper girl in a metal Art Nouveau frame arrived safely at my door!

Also in the parcel was this delightful bundle. It was so beautifully put together, I didn't want to untie the gorgeous aqua green lace!

Doesn't it just ooze Shabby Chic charm?!
Phyllis also kindly included some vintage buttons that I can't wait to use in my crafting and also the nostalgic greetings cards and water slide decals as an extra treat.

Thanks so much Phyllis and good luck with your next 'Flea Market Friday'!

I would also like to recommend another blog. If you are a lover of today's shabby style, then you need to visit Ginny. If you haven't already done so, she is at Twinkle Pink with her wonderful creations that she makes using exquisite vintage fabrics and trims; she will inspire you.
Finally, I shall have a stand here next Tuesday, if anyone is able to visit, please come and say hello! (Further details on my website.)


  1. Hi Niki,

    What some lovely things - that print is gorgeous!

    Ginny makes some fantastic items doesn't she? I hope to buy one of her exquisite boots nearer Christmas time!

    Have a great day at the fair!

  6. Hi Niki

    What a bumper bundle you received. Lovely. I often visit Ginny, and browse Phyllis's blog (but more often than not I lurk at both of them!).

    I was really hoping to get to the Fair on Tuesday but you already know I can't. I'm determined to get to the next one though.
