... these lines of pretties will be introduced to the vintage drawer in days over on the vintage shelves of my little online store. They take rather a long time to make so prices will start from £17. I am also in the middle of stitching together a few more metres so the little collection will keep growing. What are they for I hear you cry!!! Well lovely people they are for anything/anyone that you feel needs decorating. Will look stunning wrapped round your wedding cake as a pretty tier ribbon or tied around a pretty little vase or two or as pretty choker style scarf ties... I would love to know your thoughts as this is a very new addition to this collection of linens. Or what you would use them for yourself. They currently look fabulous draped over my floral print on the studio wall and will find it very hard to remove them as I want to leave them there forever.....I have also just wrapped the length that I have nearly completed this evening around my lampshade and it looks wonderful..... The list of uses is endless....

As most of you know I launched The Vintage Drawer Collection in February this year and Lisa was my very first client to order from the little range of linens back in those early months. I can't explain my excitement when I had a sneaky peak at her wedding album last month, beautiful photographs taken by the loveliest lady Hannah Millard.
You can see more from Lisa & Ric's forties styled day by popping over to Rock n Roll Bride, here Lisa talks about her day and her ideas.......a day of true love and a little boy named 'Bear'.xxxxx

On my way home from Whitby last weekend I bought bunches and bunches of statice from the local car boot sale. The lady was wonderful, sat amongst home grown produce that made me a tad envious. But when I got home, woven amongst the statice, were tiny little clusters of everlasting flower. You know the kind, that looks as if they are made from tissue and that you used to make calenders with when you were in infant school for your Mum for Christmas (that is if you were a 70's child like myself). They always had that dried almost compost like smell - I can re-affirm that that aroma is still as everlasting as the flower itself. But I have fallen in love with the seventies passion for anything dried and floral and I will now be on a mission to fill the house with all that is dried and musty - I wonder if a previous love for spider plants and macrame hanging baskets will return.

...a little break was taken this weekend, Mr Hunter was celebrating forty marvellous years of meandering through life! An over night bag was packed and we went to Whitby as Mr & Mrs and not Mummy and Daddy. We sauntered through the very busy cobbled streets. Wasn't it hot!! We picked the wrong weekend, everybody was out, the sun had his hat on and his showing off brought out bikini clad women and bare chested men laid out on the small scattered beaches which looked rather odd in Whitby, I have to say. Not being sun worshippers, I wore a scarf and Jamie wore a shirt and jumper - I think we may have stood out a little. So here is a little window of Whitby......
