I am in full swing restoration mode and I now have a buying ban, I am not allowed to go near any op shops, garage sales, buy and sell pages or Trademe! Just yesterday I went to pick up my new Tretchikoft vintage mirror (Ai Know!!) That I bought off Trademe and the gorgeous woman in her beautiful home (my dream house in Petone) said to me - oh you are the furniture lady, and just gave me a little antique stool! Of course I had to take it!
Here's the mirror! Had to share!

My little studio workshop at the end of the garden is FULL of furniture to restore! I actually have to pull everything out onto the lawn before I can start work each day!
Thankfully the weather here in Wellington has been so amazing (touch wood - haha - I have plenty of it!) so thank goodness I am able to work outside.
If you aren't up to date with what I have been up to, here is the link to my last blog post about why I am no longer selling Vintage Clothing.
I have been so blown away by every single furniture item I have restored selling, some within minutes of posting on social media! I can't work fast enough as items sometimes take weeks to complete with having to wait for stripper/putty/glue/paint drying times, so items for sale are few and far between!
I was so chuffed to see my little "scavenging" Instagram post was featured in Stuff's Interior Inspiration Of The Week! That was such a buzz for me!
The Axminster carpet was definitely a dream score!
Right, better get back to it, lots to do! I have little to no computer time anymore and was waiting for the next rainy day to do this update but it looks like that's not going to happen anytime soon - woohoo summer!!
