A Bust is a Must

I am so excited that the spring weather is finally kicking in because it means its time for one of my favourite things: Outdoor Antique Markets. Oh there is just something about a good day at the flea market with my best friend that is pretty hard to top.

I have a few items on my list that I will be keeping an eye out for at the fleas this summer. One of them is a bust. I think busts add a feeling of timelessness and elegance to a space, as well as a hint of the strange and unexpected that every room needs.

 M. said no to me getting a bust, but I'm ignoring that. I think his Brixton fedora would look just perfect perched on top of an importantly moustached bust.

Definitely one of my favorite reasons for spring as well! And I very recently found a bust and am absolutely in love with her (I may even want more)! Good luck finding yours :)

Yes a bust is a must!! I have had one too for years and it keeps showing up here and there ;) Need to find it a spot again. They are timeless.

I totally regret not buying a bust I found at a thrift store months ago...Im hoping to find one at a flea market this summer :)

I'll have to fight you for one if I ever see you at Aberfoyle or Christie's! :)

I love busts! I especially love the various ways that people decorate them. I have a couple that I haven't found a place for in my house yet, and in fact one is still in storage at my mum's house.
Let's hit up the Aberfoyle antique market together this summer, I'll help you hunt!

Agreed! Busts are always a good idea.
