Nobody Likes a Bragger...

But I just can't help it.
Look what I found this week, right here in a shop on my beloved Ottawa Street!
(I knew moving to this street could be dangerous...)

 I frequently stop by at  Granny's Attic Treasures just to see what wonderful
new find she has in her store.

I think it's safe to say that we've furnished a third of our house from antique stores on our street, and mostly from this shop alone. She carries all sorts of used furniture, some antique, some just well loved. And everything is so reasonably priced!

This is the table set that I have been literally dreaming about since I was a kid- I've always loved the era, and wanted a retro turquoise and red kitchen, it just feels
so cheery and warm!

Needless to say, my heart skipped a beat or two when I saw this table set. Our breakfast nook table was on the fritz, and I was already on the lookout for some new chairs, ours were falling apart on a regular basis. Also, the table legs had to be tightened on a daily basis. As much as I love Ikea, their furniture just doesn't hold up like the old stuff did.

This new (old) table set is so much more sturdy than the ikea one, no wiggling! (and twice as comfy:)
All we need now is a jukebox!


  1. that is brilliant - I love those chairs!

  2. Oh my goodness!! It's beautiful!! The colour is so perfect (for me that is...). If only I could fit seven people around such a table...

  3. I love this!!! Looks amazing in the space!! :)

  4. The colour is so bright & cheery!

  5. Oh... I LOVE a bragger when it showcases such finery! Thrifting is the best. Loving your kitchen!
