Shabby Chic and Cottage Decor Craziness

lately ni mama asyik tengok blog orang yang gila shabby chic,cottage,english and french deco ..dasat betul la penuh rumah@shop dia orang..they really work hard for it collecting,importing and searching for the things they like..salute them all.mama pun suka jugak tapi tak suka la rumah jadi terlampau semak atau semua benda senada,seirama..in other words mesti ikut concept sebab nanti your house will look like a shop, it will loose the warm and cosy feel instead become cluttered and congested (views from unqualified interior decorator:)..what mama likes is for the house to grow by itself..having one thing from one place,the other from another place,no customize look and not restricted to one theme only.having said that mama drools over the things mama saw in these people's blogs..so mama told papa who shared the same interest with mama (so lucky mama managed to influence papa into liking what mama likes..heh..heehh) that we should pay a visit to this place as mama wants to get one or two thing..papa looked at mama and said " i think you better check your stocks in the storeroom mama..i think we have enough as i didn't see a single thing that we bought from the last trip displayed yet...hehhh..hehhhh..mama ketawa..because that is very true..we bought quite a lot and mama dah pun lupa..so last nite mama pi check semua barang balik..woooo..banyak rupanya..tapestries,painting,plate.lace,table runner,kitchen glove,candle holder..haaaa...haaaa..thank you papa..mama will start transferring those things to our new house.


these are some of the tapestries mama bought from Florence market,they are really beautiful,the price depends on the thread quality and its making.If the thread is really fine and smooth it will be more expensive..the first one from right in the lower row in the picture is the most expensive..they are very fine and that is why the colour is so soft.
Some of the soveniour and decoupage plates and plaques mama bought from Vienna,Venice and Florence.

At Pitti's Palace in Florence Country Site, this palace is fulled with antique tapestries and Chandeliars.


This is one of the tapestry, so big and grand..they are very old,handmade..we can only admire the art but cannot hang it at our house (as if they are giving it to us..hehh..hehh) because most of the tapestries will have features from Bible.

mama's most favourite market..fulled with all things that mama likes..first day mama came to Florence mama bought 8 tapestries from here plus other things,papa helped mama carried back to hotel,papa lost 2 of the tapestries on the way.mama was upset,the next day we went to the same stall and mama bought another 2 to replace the lost ones..baru satisfied.makcik belakang tu sampai suka kat mama..siap peluk2 lagi:)

another of mama's favourite..ceramic and porcelain..especially with olive and lemon motives.this shop with shy owner is fulled with wonderful plates,they are handmade and quite expensive,the small one can fetch hundreds,mama bought two small plates only.but now when looking at the picture..mama..uwaaaaaa..how mama wish mama bought all the big ones..nak..nakkk..nakkkkk..

papa likes painting..so we stopped at this shop in venice..the price is quite reasonble..they have original and reproduction paintings..we can only afford the reproduction.

Yeyy..this is the one papa chose..mama have framed it and now waiting it to be hanged at the right place in our new house...
