I'm not an overly wealthy person and must admit, most of my home has been furnished with 2nd hand and preloved furniture over the years... In the beginning it was pure necessity as I purchased furniture from op-shops and clearing sales to fill my home as my budget couldn't afford new shiny pieces... But now, some 16 years down the tract (since I left home that is), my needs have changed and my family has grown. I am still a very budget conscious person and my love of recycled tressures has grown more than words could purely explain. I love the eclectic collection of furniture that I am able to give a new lease of life to and the warm home-y feel that it gives my rustic county home.... I am proud to know that most of the pieces in my home had another story to tell before they came to tell a story in mine. I celebrate these stories and share them with family and friends as often as I can.
The latest pieces to bring a new chapter to the story in my home are 5 pre-loved chairs. I was lucky enough to purchase these chairs from a clearing sale for $5 just over 2 weeks ago - yes that's right, $5 for the lot!!! 2 older style high-chairs and 3 turned timber stools.
Each chair has been tested by each of my little people...
But, it's my littlest person of all who has claimed this vintage high-chair, and it fits him just right - don't you think?
Now, onto the bread - it truly is a wonderful thing, is it not?
My love of its delicious, chewy, home baked, goodness has grown even stronger this past 5 weeks as I dive deeper and deeper into the world of Sourdough Baking.
Thanks to a cast iron pot, a super hot over, and a thriving starter I am producing artisan bread E V E R Y D A Y!
And everyday it's new and different and exciting....
But the most exciting thing of all is the crumb - it's airy and chewy and tangy and simply delicious.
So, are you buying pre-loved furniture out of necessity for your family or you do it for the passion?
Or, have you started a Sourdough journey, like me? For so many years I was too scared to start and then one day (5 weeks ago to be exact) I simply dove in, gave it all I had, and haven't looked back!!!
Happy Tuesday Friends...... xxx
