I've always loved antique furniture. There's something satisfying about using items that have been used by generations before. The items have more . . . soul, I guess. Don't get me wrong, some things are better new: mattresses, for example. I really don't want a 200+ year old mattress, thank you! But, my desk? My kitchen table? Yeah, I'd rather have something old. Besides, it's likely to be better built!
Anyway, since we were in the Cotswolds, I figured it was a good time to check out some fun antiques. So fun. There are loads of antique shops in the Cotswolds. Sadly, most of it is just way out of my price range. But I did find a couple of fun things.
The first of these finds is a brass door knocker. Don't know how old it really is. I wouldn't say it was actually an antique. But it's very cute.
Corfe Castle, in Devon, and the village. I completely love it! I'm not sure if I'll put it up on the front door or not. At the moment it's on my living room door.
The other fun find is this awesome antique money box.
So excited by my new finds! Completely love them both!
