Pre-loved things & vintage treasures for sale

Pre-loved things & vintage treasures for sale. Read on www.karinecandicekong.comIf you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that my secret to keep our home clutter-free is to regularly raid our cupboards. I go through everything, papers, bathroom cabinet, socks, shoes, everything.
I think deep down I have OCD tendencies :-) I’m OK with mess for a little while but then after a few days, I can feel it starts boiling inside me little by little until I explode and I want to set everything on fire!
Living with a kiwi and freewi that love leaving their clothes on the floor is not always making my life easier but I’m working on it.


Decorating with old paintings

November 4, 2014

I like the idea of decorating a modern home with an old painting…I grew up in a cluttered home, which is probably why I’m going the opposite and go for clean-looking, relaxed interiors but I love the idea of adding a bit of history into a modern home and mostly let the painting breathe rather than being lost in clutter.

What do you think?

Vintage treasures for sale

May 10, 2014

I bought these two wooden crates in Bristol from a lovely shop in Clifton where we used to live when Mila was born. I’ve always loved their vintage and rustic look and over the years, I’ve used them as shelves, side table, storage for Mila’s toys, props for my styling but now they can be yours…

Mila is also selling her big Mister Bear and as she said to me this morning: “It should go, it’s a very cool toy…”
Take her words for it :-)

Price for each crate is £35 + postage and Mister Bear is £20 + postage. All items can be collected from W6 or W3 or posted internationally. If interested, please leave a comment or email me to [email protected]
See more items listed on ebay here. I will add a lot more over the weekend

UPDATE: The two crates and Mister Bear are now sold!
