Styling Details...


Vintage Displays.


Last April we had the most wonderful week in St.Mawes, with temperatures in the 70's and breakfast on the patio most mornings-a little different to this year! We took the foot ferry over to Falmouth and spotted a vintage bathroom cabinet for sale. Unable to decide where to hang it (or should I say, which will is solid enough to hold it!), I decided to turn it into a display cabinet.

My neighbour Rachael has a veritable feast of ebay and flea market finds in her lovely home and she very kindly lent me a selection of vintage pieces to photograph inside the cabinet. Thank you Rachael!x

    1. Hi Marianne! Thanks so so much for checking in again! They are some of the gorgeous pieces from my lovely neighbour-she picked them up in the Far East and I asked if I could borrow them for the shoot! I have some that are similar, but the blue on these is just gorgeous. Enjoy the weekend too!

    1. Well thank you lovely! It's actually a rather gorgeous vintage sugar pot! Yes, Rachael's house has all sorts of little goodies and gems and the garden has some wonderful flowers-I'm very lucky! I did get the lovely flowers thanks-even took a couple of photos yesterday-and on Instagram too! So glad Sat went well-at least it's not long till I catch up with you all again on our trip!!x

    1. Thank you Toni!! We just love it, but being vintage it's made really well and weighs an absolute ton, so finding a sturdy enough wall in our flimsy 60's build is a bit of a challenge... I may just leave it where it is!! See you v soon! x
