Antique White Corset

Since last year, I am totally addicted to antique corsets. This beautiful white cotton corset dates from the 1800s and comes from a Vermont estate. It arrived last friday from New York. I love the shape of this corset and how it looks like together with my antique corset cover that I also  purchased in the States.

Thank you, Jeanne!

Pierrot

Since I have seen a photography of a Pierrot couple in the book Liefde voor Brocante, I was searching for two similar dolls. A couple of days ago, I found these two beauties on ebay. They come from France and I am totally in love with them.

Thank you Marie!

Antique iron bed

Last summer I purchased an antique french iron bed which dates from around 1850. It came all the long way from Los Angeles to Vienna. The beautiful scrolls, the extraordinary shape and the original timeworn paint make this bed so special.

Thank you, Loretta!







also found last summer in Danmark ...

These are my beloved corsets. Some of you already know them from older posts. Yesterday evening, I have put them together and took some snapshots.

Antique Jacket

I purchased this wonderful antique jacket a few months ago in the Netherlands. I love the colour and the incredibly beautiful lacework of this unique piece. I couldn't stop photographing all the wonderful details.

Antique Corset

I am totaly in love with antique corsets. I have purchased this unique piece in France. It is one of the most beautiful corsets I have ever seen. The colour is a light beige with numerous blue and yellow flowers that are stitched on the fabric. On the top of the corset, I have added a beautful bow that I had purchased a couple of months ago at an antique market in Vienna. Isn't it funny that it has exactly the same colour as the flowers and ribbons of the corset?

Worn pointe shoes


I collect worn ballet pointe shoes since a couple of years. These two pairs are my favourites. I have placed them on a beautiful vintage drum that is standing in front of a small antique cupboard. Their light pink colour and their huge grey "nose" make them so special.
