Get Simone's Look!!

I've had such a lovely response to my House Tour post from yesterday. Thank you everyone who either left me a comment here at ABT or emailed me directly. It was so lovely to hear from you. The obvious thing we all loved in Simone & Richard's house was the framed vintage swimsuits. What a fantastic idea for a beach house. Simone purchased all of these swimsuits on Ebay so keep your eyes peeled!!

In response to yesterday's post I thought it would be fun to put together a few things currently available on Ebay which would be similar things Simone would have purchased when decorating her house. Enjoy my selections and take a leaf from Simone's book - don't pay too much for anything vintage as there will always be something else just around the corner!!

Venetian Mirrors

Lately I have been receiving many emails from readers asking me where I would suggest they go to buy a mirror similar to the mirror I have above the vanity in my wardrobe. Lynn at Paris Hotel Boutique has a beautiful one at the moment which I have posted above but Ebay is another great source. Click HERE & HERE to see the many different styles currently available.

The One That Got Away!

Look at the fabulous lady portrait (top) which I missed out on today on Ebay! I think I have a major problem as I keep on forgetting to bid for things. I think I need to start using bidder assist!! I'm so disappointed and angry at myself!! On another note, Leigh from Found Now Home emailed me this gorgeous picture of her portrait wall the other day - how gorgeous is this!!! Looks like she has been collecting lady portraits for a while now!! Thanks Leigh for this fantastic image - very inspiring!!

Silhouette Madness

Caitlin Moran via The Scoop


I was recently captured by the gorgeous cluster of pictures by US based Interior Designer Caitlin Moran in the San Francisco Designer Showcase and in particular the silhouettes she used. Blog land has certainly been bombarded by posts about silhouettes over the last few months but I couldn't help but post this gorgeous piece which is currently available on Ebay which struck me as very similar to the look and feel of the room by Caitlin above.

Remember The Head Vase??

Do you remember me posting about this vintage head vase a few weeks ago? Let me refresh your memory - I was watching this head vase on Ebay a little while ago and I meant to bid for it but I completely forgot and completely missed out on it. I was so disappointed as I really wanted the vase. Some of you are probably wondering why in the world would she want that vase but that is something I cannot explain. I just love it. Well the funniest thing happened. The vase became relisted (maybe the winner withdrew??) and this time I didn't forget!! I became the lucky bidder!! It just arrived a week or so ago and I have to tell you I am thrilled!! Sometimes things are just meant to be!

Vintage Oil Painting

Tonight I was lucky on Ebay unlike last night! I actually remembered to bid (without reminders) on this vintage still life oil painting and I won it for a mere $14.00!! I plan to take the rather unfortunate frame off and either hang it without a frame in a cluster or look for a gilt ornate vintage frame to place it in for my new house.

Vintage Head Vases

Lately I have been obsessing over vintage head vases - I know that obsession may seem a little strange to some but I can't help it - I LOVE them!! I am so cranky because today this head vase was getting towards ending on Ebay and I always wait till the end to bid - I even wrote myself a little note on my hand to remind me to bid for it at 6.40pm tonight (something I haven't done since I was at school) and you wouldn't believe it - I totally forgot to bid!! I realised when we were out to dinner with some friends and I think they thought I was completely mad!!! I am so disappointed - it went for a mere $22.50!! Oh well, I'll just have to wait for another one to catch my attention!!

Ebay Find

If I lived in America I would be snapping up this gorgeous faux bamboo sofa which is listed on Ebay at a buy it now price of US$350. What an absolute bargain! I love the fabric it's upholstered in. I just wish I could buy it!! We don't ever see pieces like that here in Australia.

Ebay Chair

I just thought I would show you the fabulous faux bamboo chair I just purchased on Ebay. I'm so excited with it considering we don't usually see chairs like this on our Australian Ebay. I am going to use it as my desk chair in my office at home and I don't even think I will have to change the upholstery which is fantastic!!
