Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

Monthly Archives: January 2010

A great new find, courtesy of my ever watchful sister Siobhan, an avid crafter and seamstress extraordinaire. This little online boutique is jam-packed full of goodies, and all at a great price.

Enter: Re-Found Objects! This little site is ace, I love the paper stuff (see top image) and also these mexican paper designs.

Or what about these cute ‘Rusty Shapes’ from £2.50 each.

For textile fanciers, these lovely vintage Parisian ‘Memento’ cushions are just darling and for £35 each, a fair price for a slice of silky vintage history.

I could go on…oh ok, just one more…

I love these recycled metal picture frames – very salt-weathered and sea-sidey and a snip at £9. Fab! I urge you to favourite it (then you can buy lots of new and interesting stuff and wow your friends!)


The first addition to my 2010 wish-list is this rather eye-catching print by Anthony Burrill. This little beauty can be bought at Lollipop Shoppe for £33.  A most excellent start to the year!


The recent Elsie Riley shoot, which took place at the oh-so-quirky warren that is Goldbrick House was so much fun. Our models, Laya and Rhea were just fab and as usual Elena, the snapper, turned it out!

The inspiration was a dark and glamourous Alice  in Wonderland vibe, so I made sure the hair and make-up was girly vintage glam.

Here are a few pics from the day – which will be appearing on Elsie Riley’s site soon. Enjoy!

Wrap up warm!

Pure glamour!
