Vintage Gems




Pastry cutters...


Today I fell in love...
with an unassuming tin on the shelf in the charity shop.
 Only this morning, the family of an old lady
 dropped in her possessions. 

We spend our entire lives
 collecting, upgrading, improving.
 How sad to see so many wonderful and
 well loved simple, everyday objects end up in  a cardboard box.
 I will give some of them a good home for her and
 photograph them for everyone to enjoy...

Styling Details



Resin Dipped Mushrooms etc...

The brilliant Mary Portas has done,
 and continues to do, more than her fair share
 in raising awareness of the British High Street,
 and the importance of supporting small businesses.
 Great Missenden is emerging
 as a shining example of local, independent
 shops opening up and not only surviving, but thriving. 

Here are a few purchases I made
 a couple of weeks ago-some books and frames
 from the charity shops (which I also used for an earlier post here
and some gorgeous resin dipped mushrooms
 that I found in one of our brilliant home and gift shops 'Big Sky'.

Mini Moodboards




On A Postcard...


For my first post on mini moodboards,
 I used Pantone postcards.
 A few weeks ago, I stopped in at Liberty
 on the way home and found
 these great metal tags and green bakers twine by RE.
 The buttons came with last month's
 and the old keys come from my bits and bobs box!
Have a great weekend!

Nature Study...





Autumn Part 2...

We have seeds, dried flower heads,
 dead plants and leaves pretty much all round
 the bedroom (not to mention the drying garlic in the study,
 which almost knocks you out when you go in the room).
 I'm not saying I'm going to throw them out-
because I find that very hard to do,
 but I took some shots of them before Jon does-
because he doesn't!

Nature Study...



Autumn...


 The leaves are just beginning to turn
 and our house is gradually filling up with
 all sorts of windfall picked up on the school run!

 I tried a few practice shots
 after I dropped Evie and Gabriel off-
here are a few to show you.
I hope you like them! 


































Instagram Stories-The Cloth House




The Cloth House London 


The Cloth House at 47 and 98 Berwick Street
 has become a London Institution for designers and crafters alike.
 Set up in 1984, I first paid them a visit whilst
 at University and hadn't been back until this Summer.

Both shops are a veritable Alladin's Cave of all things 'cloth,' 
 with their buyers travelling the world to source
 individual and unique collections. The company works as closely
 as possible with local traders and craftsmen 
to keep traditional skills alive. 
They stock the largest variety of jersey 
and felt in the UK, as well as lace,
 trimmings, and vintage buttons to name but a few.

If you can't make it to London to see them for yourself,
 check their website for mail order and contact details
