Return to Revival...........

While I'm away I thought you might enjoy looking at some unusual, often quirky, accessories at that great shop REVIVAL I recently shared with you.

Every time I stop by I see fun items, some antique, others vintage, and a great assortment of stylish reproductions at affordable prices.

Don't you love that vintage peg bag?  I want the bottles in the wire basket.....great to display single stems of pretty flowers.

Quirky beachy items.......IF one has a beach place!

Vintage silver backed hair much prettier than today's plastic and rubber.................

Repro painted wall panels.........vintage corbels, great with the addition of a shelf......and who doesn't need the Eiffel Tower to recall those Paris visits!

I do love antique silver and rarely polish it because I dislike too much shine......but adore grey!
Great old editions of that amazing encyclopedia.

Fabulous vintage luggage...........let's find an old Rolls Royce, throw it in the boot and tootle off to a country house in the Cotswolds for the weekend!

I'll be back from California soon.........see you then.


  1. Glad you and Jasmin are having such a fun and relaxing time, maybe Jasmin will post some pix on her blog when she returns. I would be happy to pack my bags and explore the Cotswolds with you any time ;)

  2. I love the bottles in the wire basket! Carla

  3. Hi this is Kim at I am new to blogging and I found your blog on Say it with roses blog. It looks like you had a great time and your photos are nice. I especially like the Leopard. I live in Mississippi. I also like to collect antiques. Hope you have a nice day.

  4. YUM YUM YUM!!!! Wish I lived closer to you and could go shopping together. I bet we could get into a lot of trouble together....LOL
    Have fun in California...I love it there!!!
    Hugs, Amy

  8. Hi Mary, I can see why you love this store. Missing you.

  9. these are fun. What a lovely store!

  10. Hello Mary
    I would love to visit Revival!
    The bottles in the wire basket have to be my FAVE item. I just love displaying single flowers.
    I would have bought the Eiffel Tower too as I have a wee collection of four, one is fairly large like that one, but I just can't say no!

    Enjoy your trip and when you return please do come and visit me.
    Take care

  11. Hello Mary
    Me again!
    I've just noticed on your blog you now have 100 followers so.....
    CONGRATULATIONS on that!!!!

  12. Hello Mary,

    Just stopped in to say I adore your coral bottle and "silver teacups and books" photos. They are stunning. Take care. *hugs*

  13. Hope you are having a wonderful time in California Mary! You are the world traveler lately.

    I enjoyed seeing some of these things in the shop especially the old books. That is my weakness. I was talking to a lady in a shop who told me that the white and light grey is already going out of style now this year and dark wood is coming back in. Things just come and go in cycles. I will be back in style while I do not care much about trends. I just like to surround myself with what I love.

    Hugs from Holland ~

  14. Oh, I see so many things that I want!! My garden house is almost finished, but I'm sure I could squeeze a few more items in!!
    Take Care,


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
