Gearing up for Christmas....

2013-10-21T19:42:11.790-07:00

 Can you believe that Christmas time is nearly upon us and it is time for us to start thinking of plans for Christmas and forms of giving......I cant believe it or maybe i just don't want to.  Christmas is always a busy time for our family with things getting busy in store, my husband in a hurry to complete many building contracts and my daughters; one with exams and the other working in the hospitality industry; crazy.  Then on top of that i have to think about Christmas at home....what to cook; what gifts to give ( although i don't have to go far for mine...) and getting everything tidy at home ready for entertaining. I hope you have started planning your special Christmas...... This pottery , made in Australia has just arrived....such lovely tones. Books, horn and stone..... Our collection of old shoe lasts..... Taxidermy ; with more on its way..... Gorgeous lighting....cushions and soapsCow skin bags and totes....and more leather bags on their way.[...]

 Middle of the year already and sitting around cosy wood fires looking at what we can do to improve our nests .....Home is somewhere where we can come home relax from a hectic day at work; so its nice to have it peaceful, relaxing and surrounded by things that you enjoy to look at.  We have been busy making suggestions to customers on how they can better improve their room over these Winter months; after all we do spend more time indoors.  Paint a feature wall ; change a picture for a mirror to reflect the outdoors.  Each time we re-merchandise the store we have been changing our feature panel; and this time it features a popular grey tone.  These colours can come blue based or green based.....and depending on what room you choose to use these tones depends on what base you should use.
 A selection of goods available.....
 Antlers and mercury glass with a splash of green.....




Our cosy nook; dont forget to get a warm......

 Hi there everyone....sorry for the lack of posts lately but i have been busy with lots of projects.  I have been making cushions, doing up furniture and collecting lots of interesting pieces for the store.  They should be arriving within about 3 weeks; so excited.  I will be posting lots of pictures for those that cant make it into store and also revealing the date of our Autumn champagne evening to launch all our new and interesting products.  The chair above arrived to our store yesterday; its vintage leather and wing back design has huge appeal and already is attracting a lot of attention.....
 Lots of warm winter throws for pulling over yourself on the couch on those chilly evenings ......

 Lots of linen and purposeful products.....
And wow look at the 3 seater in this gorgeous vintage couch.....so comfy.



Come shopping at The Vintage Rose.....

2013-03-21T22:28:59.869-07:00

 This week we have received some interesting new pieces in store and things are arriving every day.....

 Our ever popular french block soaps....

Inspirational shot....leather and horns; maybe something in store for our store.....



I would like to share some styling at home and ....

2013-03-13T22:18:44.817-07:00

 Introduce you to Neville our new addition to our home.  I know what a lot of you are thinking out there......what is she doing or thinking ?  I know its touchy having taxidermy animals on your walls and now, all the rage, skins on your floors; but you know what; it depends how its been done.  This sparks a big debate; how do you know its been done in a humane way.  Well let me tell you i know a lot of deer shooters from where i live and all of them are nice guys; yes its a sport, but also a necessity for the farmers to keep the numbers down on their farms so they don't become a pest and grow too much in numbers.  I wasn't sure how i would feel about having Neville ( that's what we have called him) on our wall.....now i love and admire him for the beautiful animal he once was.  Hope all you blogging friends aren't too crabby with me. Styling this room was a challenge but i must say i love the masculinity of the room and so too does my husband; funny that. A great place to sit by the fire and relax. Colours and textures help build a room;  place one thing in at a time, stand back and see if it looks right or not. Fresh from the garden......A collection of skittles etc.[...]



Enjoy your browse around.....

2013-03-07T21:15:14.575-08:00

 This week new stock has started to arrive.......
 Our medium and small size pears are back in store...
 With the addition of the new marble birds that have been welcomed by customers.
 And not to forget our whole new collection of Cathy Penton charms......they are simply gorgeous.


Hope you have enjoyed your browse around parts of our store.....have  a great weekend.x



Some hints of whats arriving soon in store....

2013-02-28T20:36:01.703-08:00

 Well it was a hectic time at the trade fair; but excited at the prospect of what will be arriving in store over the next couple of months.  I have brought some amazing things; so all in all, very happy.  Also happy to be back home around familiar people and places and back in my own bed....
 This gorgeous Moroccan pottery will be new in store soon; beautiful and very tactile, in gorgeous muted tones.
 Belgian linen string.....always handy.
 This lamp is similar to one i have brought; i must say i have spent a lot on lighting this year.  With a lot of my customers renovating instead of selling ; the prospect for updating to a more contemporary industrial look can be achieved very easily with the right lighting choices and with relative little expense.
Lots of linen in washed florals and fresh patterns arriving soon......Take care everyone and have a great weekend.xxx



Happy Valentines Day.......

2013-02-13T21:14:14.416-08:00

 So sorry i have been slack with my postings......after a wonderful holiday i have had lots of time to think of ideas for my store , and we have decided on going for a slightly new look...we are excited soon to be soon showing you.   It wont be too drastic just a few tweaks here and there.....but all still in the making.  I can reveal we are making a lot of the stock ourselves which is making our job a lot harder, but will give the store a unique and individual look.  So we are very excited and cant wait for the big launch......   The store will be closed for a few days so i will be informing you of the dates; the shop will be repainted with new colours and signage to go with our new look;  Don't worry it is still Vintage through and through......more so than ever.  Enjoy your Valentines Day.  I hope everyone comes home to some sort of surprise, even if its just a rose from the garden.xxxxx






Part 2........

2012-12-21T17:43:09.505-08:00

 Here are some more photos of part 2 of the reveal of our home renovation...... The gorgeous Killekrankie Farm Christmas tree ...... From our upstairs landing looking into the hall.... A corner in our bedroom.... One of my favourite rooms and the bath is one of my favourite spots with a glass of bubbles in hand. The garden is growing so quickly;  this has all been re-landscaped and completely changed to accommodate for the newly installed bi-fold doors opening onto our paved patio.The front garden is coming along.  We still have to mirror the sandstone steps on the other side of the porch......always something to do.   I hope to have enjoyed the second part of the reveal; a very busy year with this restoration .....but we are very happy in our new home.[...]



Finally............

2012-12-17T21:50:23.159-08:00

 As i have been promising for a very long time.......a reveal of our home renovation.  I finally feel like i can show some sneak photos of the internal of our newly renovated Georgian home. The entrance hall with sisal carpet and french wall paper......the light fitting was existing; we had it sandblasted from brass to matt and then painted them with matt black paint. A view looking from the top of the stairs to the front door. From the hall looking into the library. Somewhere to just get away and read.  Here you can see the original floor boards which we managed to save.....we think they may be iron bark.  So no sanding with an industrial sander but a gentle hand sand and then finished off with a few coats of wax.  The wall colour was mixed by myself to match the linen roman blinds. The lounge has a cedar miners couch; these walls were also mixed to match our slip cover couches; A colonial portrait Beautiful cedar mantles,,,,all original to the house.Well i hope you have enjoyed part 1 to the reveal.  I will be showing more over the next couple of days, so stay tuned.....take care everyone.xxx[...]
