Vintage dreams...

Wow, its ages since I last blogged! And the crazy thing is I've got lots to share! I will be posting later this week about upcoming markets and schemes I'm working on, with maybe some sneaky-peak photos of new things I've been making... But in the meantime I have some folksy gorgeousness to share with you.

I've been in a mega vintage mood recently. I like to think of it as channeling my inner crazy-old-lady.. she's called Maude or Flora or something like that, and she likes gin and pearls and tea parties and cut flowers and doilies... ahem. I have been listening to loads of vintage jazz on and have been desperately hunting for some gorgeous, vintage shoes to fit my monster feet (I'm a UK size 10 which is a total bitch when it comes to buying pretty shoes). And so I thought I'd show you some of my favourite vintage finds from Folksy:

A gorgeous, cherry scented soy candle from Mr. Wick

Its not secret I love all of Trinket Box's jewellery, but I particularly love this vintage-style pendant which would look fab teamed with a vintage tea dress

If I was skinny I'd buy this dress by Neopolitan Dreams in a flash! So pretty!

Again, if I was skinny.... I LOVE this top by Tea at Aunties


  1. Thank you so much for featuring my pendant!
    I do LOVE that dress - it's in my favourites :) I love that shop in general.
