Ah, lovely Planetarians, all 246 of you (and hello to the newbies who've hopped aboard this madcap planet!). Many of enjoyed my last little outing to Chez Moi so much last time, I thought we’d go window shopping in Hobart again. All part of my bloggy rehab! Let’s go for a wander down Liverpool Street (the block down from Spotlight for those local Planetarians reading). Here we find the charming Aznew Interiors. The amiable proprietor, Lyne Chadwick, stocks an eclectic mix of new and vintage French provincial, country and shabby chic homewares and accessories. So, what greets us as we walk in the door? Utter gorgeousness, n’est-ce pas?
Fancy a spin on this delightful pink bicycle? Lyne tells us it’s a Crocodile brand with the label ‘St Claire’ but she hasn’t been able to find out more about its origin. It’s just vintage sweetness. The basket, the flowers, the baguette, the apple, the magazine – sigh. Lyne’s talents as a stylist are evident.
This is what the shopfront looks like when the bicycle isn’t on display (I couldn’t take one without the reflections of passing cars) – I found this photo on Lyne’s website.
Now, what takes your fancy? What about over there, near the bike? I’m quite smitten with these white tin hydrangea coathooks. I could see them at home on Planet Baby. How about you?
And look, here are some tin hearts for their many fans out there like Tina.
And all so reasonably priced – all less than $AUD10.
Or how about this ceramic dragonfly coaster?
Here’s a version for the butterfly lovers among you.
There are pretty cotton floral aprons.
And the shorter ‘pinny’ versions.
Oh, and an assortment of embroidered cushions and quilts.
There’s large selection of laminated posters. I want to take Audrey home with me. What was that? You saw her first? No worries, Lyne has plenty on offer.
And this little watering can has the Francophile in me singing.
As does this matching tray. Shall I get it or do you want it?
These little country-style mugs are cheerful. Why don’t you grab some – they’re very reasonably priced.
And to finish, does this French butler’s tray take your fancy?
Ah, there’s nothing like a spot of window shopping to revive the soul, is there? Owing to the state of Planet Baby’s budget (waiting for Mr PB’s monthly pay to arrive shortly), I’m not buying anything today. But I know I’ll be back once I’ve discovered this little gem. Thanks for showing us around, Lyne. Now, how about you lovely Planetarians show us what you’re buying from Lyne? Do share!
PS As usual, I don't have any financial interest in Lyne's business. I'm just an admirer who likes window shopping with my fellow Planetarians!
