She Sells Seashells

A few weeks ago we visited the Newark Antiques Fair, which is apparently the largest of its kind in the whole of Europe. It was a pretty overwhelming experience and we got lost several times before getting our bearings (sort of). There was so much to see and take in that I didn’t end up actually buying much, but I’d definitely go again if only for the sheer spectacle of it.

In the end the only things I brought home with me were these seashells in glass-topped boxes. I’m a sucker for anything natural history-related!

P.S. I finally gave this blog a proper make-over. What do you think?

  2. The antique fair sounds lovely, but definitely overwhelming. The seashells in glass-topped boxes are so beautiful!
    The blog make-over is so beautiful. Everything is just gorgeous to look at. Definitely one of the best blog layouts I’ve seen! :)

  3. Those shells are so pretty – sounds like an amazing place to visit. I love your new blog design – simple and light and airy and very pretty – think it suits your style perfectly! Hope all goes well xx

  4. I’ve never seen seashells presented like that, but they look absolutely beautiful! I’m loving the new layout by the way, I think it really captures the feel of your blog.

  5. Oh my goodness gracious! I want to use that little scream face we have on Instagram to express how amazing these are! You lucky, lucky lady. I would love to go to Newark but I don’t think I would ever have enough money for all that I would want to buy. Plus, like you said, I think that overwhelming feeling might be a little too much for me. I love your blogs new look , you are a lady of impeccable taste.
    Thank you for your lovely comments too. xxxx

  6. Wow, I just love what you found. And the blog makeover is beautiful; clean but still very you (which is cozy and vintage)…errr, I clearly can’t describe thinks well, but what I mean to say is that it looks great!

  7. Oh I love your blog so much all your antiques and thrifting make me so excited about going into charity shops and carboot’s again!
    Your blog is looking so beautiful how did you do the lovely slideshow/banner at the top? It’s cracking!


  8. i’m so envious of the sea shells, they’re beautiful. i’m envious of the antiques fair too, australia is such a new country (compared to europe) and we don’t preserve much, it’s hard to find anything good unless you’re in one of the bigger cities! i adore the new blog design too, it is completely gorgeous.
