EyeSpy: Inspiration

So many things inspire me, its so hard to list a few....
right now its white kitchens (im SO tempted to paint our tired one!), french style Almond macaroons ( i found an easy recipe that I plan to try very soon),
interior books/magazines (dreaming of a new home)

yesterday we woke up early as you do when you have little ones, so we all headed to Rozelle for something to eat and a trip to the weekend flea market.
Some great bric brac stalls, it was freezing though so we didnt stay for too long!
I found a lady who sold vintage sewing notions so I got these pretty buttons and cotton lace trim to use in my papergoods. Lovely ric-rac and some pretty purple satin ribbon as well as a couple of vintage golden books...i'll have to visit her again sometime!
i really regret not buying a little floral porcelein trinket box...oh well maybe next time...if its still there then its meant to be! Flea markets are always a great source of inspiration....


  1. Hi Anastasia!
    Cannot beat a good ol' flea market for inspiration, I agree!
    Love your bits & pieces :)
    xo, Kali

  2. Flea markets are great if you find some good things, which you always seems to...=)

  3. Flea markets and op shops can be sooo much fun! Can be a bit hit and miss too whether you find anything you really like. Lovely finds you made!

  4. Love flea markets. Looks like you picked up some lovely stuff.

    I have been inspired by vintage buttons lately.

    I hope you don't mind but I "tagged" you. You can read about it on my blog If you want to participate that would be great but if not, I understand, it's fun but also a bit of blog space intrusion.

  8. mmmmm, buttons, laces & ribbons can definately be so very inspiring...your photos are lovley as is the haul.
    Looking forward to getting a glimpse of those macaroons!!

  9. Love markets in general. Great finds and you macaroons look delicious!
