Great Finds At High Street Market

I’m thinking that since I missed posting Etsy Take Five Tuesdays yesterday since I took the afternoon off, that perhaps today on decor8 I’ll share some etsy sellers so that we don’t have to wait until next Tuesday. Sound good? I’ll have a mini series of posts today dedicated to a few fine etsy sellers… starting with this one: the High Street Market shop and blog.

High Street Market Finds

A few of my picks: a. painted tea cups with lids, b. white wire grid milk crate with a kelly green handle, c. hummingbird/botanical framed print, d. refurbished electric fan in aqua, e. black footstool and f. retro desk lamp.

I’ve talked about this darling market before but I’m hoping that by highlighting them again today someone will please buy the vintage blue fan because I can’t see it any longer… I want it so badly it hurts but it won’t work in my outlets in Germany without a converter and even that’s a risk — so it’s all yours. Wahhhhh! Don’t you love it?

Anniversary Day

I can’t believe I forgot to tell you this earlier today, but it’s my anniversary today (July 14, 2001) so my husband and I are taking the day off to celebrate eight years together. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone but I’ve loved every single day with Thorsten and can’t wait to spend many more years with him. See this image below? It was on the card he gave me this morning, the owl and the pussycat sailing away together, which we will soon do. :) Well I’m off to celebrate…

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays will resume next week… but I’ll be back tomorrow! And on Thursday I have some exciting news to share with you — I’m taking on a guest writer twice monthly and I can’t wait to tell you who it is and what we have up our sleeve. :0)

See you tomorrow!

Inspired By Light Locations

If you are in the film/TV and photograpy industry you may know all about Light Locations, a location agency based in the UK launched by Sophie Hitchens eight years ago. They are well known in the business, some of their properties you may recognize from some of your favorite books and magazines, like LivingEtc who is a Light Locations client.

Light Locations

Simply put, you can lease a beautiful, inspiring lifestyle location to shoot a film, take photos for your fashion magazine, or style a shoot for your upcoming book and of course, you can select from a number of properties worldwide to do this – Sophie has the right connections and a beautiful website where you can browse her stylish portfolio of properties.

And of course, if you have a beautiful home, shop, workroom or other location that you think would be something Light Locations would have an interest in, you can submit it to Sophie as she is always scouting for new spaces. I’m thinking this works nicely for someone who lives in two places with one vacant a good amount of time each year, it’s a nice way to receive some income for when you’re not using your second home.

For me, this is all a very far off dream that may never be my reality but I’m still inspired to see such interesting spaces, admire the decor, and of course share all of this with those of you who just may be looking for their next location!
