Adoring all things vintage, retro and downright quirky

Tag Archives: mirrors

I’m not particularly vain, but I love mirrors. There seem to be so many gorgeous ones out there at the mo, so here’s my pick of the ones that have tickled my fancy. Note, some of these are waaaay out of my budget but they go into my ‘if I ever win the lottery’ compartment in my brain!

Anthropologie Riptide Mirror, £798 – more a piece of artwork than a functional mirror, but my, how tactile and pretty! The fish-scale look coupled with the clash of metals makes me very happy…sigh…

And another – Anthropologie Bird’s Nest Mirror, £498   this stunning wooden carved mirror comes in various shapes – all blooming marvelous!

Finally, not strictly a mirror, but a super-pretty mirrored table, I just love this. So delicate and quirky. You can get this Round Mirrored Bird Table for £129 from Primrose and Plum.

I’ve finally been converted to copper. I’ve watched it with interest as it has crept into interiors since around 2013 and now it is everywhere. I’ve held off long enough but when you see these beauts, you’ll want to cop some copper!

I have been busy seeking out some sumptuous treats for your delectation this Spring and have found some truly exquisite pieces for the taking (and some that will be appearing soon on a wall / cupboard / sideboard in my home!)

First off, let’s say we need some new threads. The winter cardies and trousers, tights and scarves were great for the nippy weather, but not now the sun is shining, the birds are singing – that means a whole new wardrobe!

Over on Plumo there are some really stunning dresses, below are a few that have tickled my fancy.

I love this yellow vintage tea dress, it’s all cornfields and sunshine and costs  £159 from Plumo (it is made of lovely silk georgette, mind.)  Or this pretty folk dress below for £139.

I’m really liking this folksy vibe that is hot at the moment, it’s the ultimate femine look and makes me feel like sipping home-made lemonade in the garden. For a cute accessory, I rather fancy this Bali bag – what a fab shade of green! It too is not the cheapest in the world but I would fork out the £59 for it in a heartbeat!

Finally, from Plumo, I adore this little leather purse (£25) I think I had something similar which I purchased from the caravan site shop on holiday in Wales many moons ago. Ah the nostalgia!

Over at Toast, I am really loving the uber blue shoes they have such as this soft nappa sandal and this strappy azure blue beaded thong sandal – both £89. Like wearing the sky on your feet!

So to the home front. Old reliable Graham and Green have got a great 20% off voucher code running at the moment and I’m tempted to splurge on a few things I have had my eye on for some time such as this lovely branch vase below which cost between £37 and £42.

Or these beautiful angel wing mirrors as seen in Living Etc – they are really unique and totally worth the £189 G & G are asking.
