My Little House

This week I went to antique fair. I love vintage things displayed in the stands. I feel like walking in the last century. Every vintage toy, tea cup, mirror or book has its own story to tell. The weather was great sunny with slight bite in the air. When I got home I prepared nice cup of tea and inspired by all those vintage beauty created my first soft toy!  

Here are some photos from the Antique Fair :

 I am off to prepare some nice sweet potato soup!

Have a nice day and thank you for stopping by!

I love autumn when the leaves turn yellow, brown and red. I am so proud that our dining table is by the window. I enjoying every minute of the view while having breakfast, quick lunch and dinner. It's like being in a tree house!
