I just completely and utterly adore this, the concept and design are absolute perfection! I am so overly jealous of who gets paid to do this work…dream job! 😀

It seems an absolute age since I held my sisters vintage inspired hen party. But as promised here are some of the photos of some of the little details of the special day. I made each hen a heart shaped blackboard necklace, of which they could decorate with their own chalk pen. You can buy blank wooden hearts on ebay, and a good quality chalk board paint at good DIY stores if you want to make these yourself!

I also made some drink charms, plenty of bunting, and a notice board (with the help of my best friend!!) for everyone to leave a message on in the form of vintage postcard. We played Mr & Mrs, and pin the kiss on David Beckham, whilst we ate copious amounts of lovely food brought by each of the girls.

It was an amazing afternoon, and the evening was just a lovely as we met up with the Men and went for drinks in a local bar.

Please do excuse some very rushed photography, as i barely had time to take perfect pics as frankly we were having way too much fun to be worrying about photography! Which is how any special day should be 😀

I cant wait to use this vintage 1960's bag this autumn!

My Partner bought me this bag last year for my birthday when we visited Rye, East sussex, England. There are a great many thrift stores there, full of antique and vintage goodies, a great place to visit if you ever head that way! This bag had been put away over summer…but with autumn creeping closer i have got it out and i cant wait to use it again! I dont own many bags, but this one of my best ones.  It dates from the 1960’s and i just adore it!


As the title suggests I’m feeling a little guilty as to how long it has taken to get back on my blog…Needless to say my Big Sisters wedding was the priority for me and everything else has had to take a back seat for the time being. It was completely and utterly worth it though, Her wedding was on the 25th of August and the day was Amazing. Friends and family really did make the day one to remember and there was even a little rain for good luck! Hopefully once the photos come back I will share some of the details from her big day 🙂

At the moment whilst she is on Honeymoon with her new hubby, I am flat sitting and babysitting their adorable Jack Russel Bauer. Bauer’s favorite activities include sunbathing, sunbathing more sunbathing, cuddles and then some more cuddles, and running around with his toy pony. Pretty cute! Those of you who are familiar with my posts about Mr Bingley will probably like to know that Bauer and Bingley are best friends, and whilst I have been here I have made sure Bauer gets the odd visit to see his little buddy Mr Bingley!

Their friendship is made even more special by the fact that Bauer has troubles with other dogs when out and about, and Mr Bingley is pretty much his only doggy play friend, awww!

Mr Bingley did not want us to leave on our last visit home, and this is the face peering out from under the gate that I had to leave…It breaks my heart every time!
