Hello, just a quick little post to let you know that I have re-opened my vintage store on Etsy.
More treasures will be added when I have got around to photographing the individual pieces. They are all real special little collectors items, straight from the 70’s and 80’s and specially sourced from unused shop stock. This means that all pieces have been unworn and are ‘brand new vintage’ in perfectly pristine condition.
If you would like to take a little look on what we have on offer over there please click on a picture and it will take you there :)
Love & Light

Hello :) Sorry its been ages. I have always been rather sporadic when it comes to blogging anyway, let’s face it.
So what did I get up to in my time away?
1. I passed my driving test! Woahhhh major achievement right there!
2. I got a job!
3. I quit that job :/
4. I did our annual Autumn photos. Nothing major and posy this year, just a lovely walk in the park with my beautiful boys. And the freedom that objectivity can give you.
I hope you like them. I had rather missed my camera and it felt good to shoot again, I had been a bit rusty and frustrated last time I got her out.
Hope you’re all having a wonderful October and enjoying the changing of the seasons. Ekkkk! Christmas soon. Actually shh, I didn’t mention that ;) xxx
Hello there :) I found this lovely print a while back and whilst re-framing it I discovered it was a mass-produced print on textured paper. I love it anyway, and hope you do too lovelies xxx
I hope you enjoy this free vintage wallpaper, use it how ever you wish. It can be downloaded by clicking on the picture below and then saving the file.
Yes, ahem. Introducing my fabulous sister, Genine Delahaye! This awesome little lady got her designs featured on the blog Print & Pattern, and I couldn’t be more excited, happy and proud for her. This is her vocation, she wanted to be a designer and I wanted to be a brain surgeon. At least one of us got our dream ;)
You can keep track of her new work on Facebook or take a gander at her portfolio of work on her blog.
And yes, she kindly gave me permission to use her bear design on my blog, how lucky am I!
The contenders for my own Mother’s day card….So they have to be good!
Loving the fresh spring hues of sky blue and peach, and the pretty typography is rather splendid too. Quite a hefty spend at £4.57 (UK postage included). But It is worth it if you need to buy one for an in-Law or any other paper goodies :)
A sweet little card. You can buy directly from the designer at £4 including postage.
Of course, the list wouldn’t be complete without a sweet card from my favorites, Pip Studio. £4 from Amazon
This is the card I will be getting for my dear mum. It’s special because my mum is my thrifting partner in crime. I also like the sweet retro things in the shop window. I could even put some pocket-money inside to spend at our first spring bootfair of the year! Plus it is a bargain £2 instore. (The postage is £3.25 ekkkk!)
Maggie Makes has produced a free download of this cross stitch design for those of us who would like to be super special. Infact there is a whole page dedicated to lovely tutorials. Think geometric patchwork placemats and upcycled T-shirt scarves!
