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 :)

  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.

  5. Love the little things.I adore the buttons.A while back I started a collection of buttons, but very different ones.Ive enver seen anyones collection as different as mine is.Im so happy with it so far.

  6. that was never not enver,LOL

  7. 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!
