'Memories in pattern and colour'

Category Archives: Vintage find!

I found this little programme for a tiny price of 25p at a local vintage shop. It was the front cover that drew me in, and then as I flicked through the pages I saw some lovely examples of high-end fashion from the time.

It is such a step back in time, and as I flick through the pages I can imagine my self at the theatre, dressed up to the nines in my art deco beaded attire! The adverts are aimed at ladies with money, and really brings back the allure of the luxury of the time! Glorious!

Enjoy!

This is the second time me and my sister have popped along to this wonderful event. This time we even took our lovely mum, so its was a fantastic girly day out for us! We even found time for tea and *the most amazing* cake in a pop up vintage cafe. Tea and cake are always better when served on vintage mismatched crockery, don’t you think?!  Unfortunately I forgot to take any pictures, so all pictures are courtesy of vintagebrighton.com but check all the vintageness that was on offer!

My bargain purchases of the day were a £1 costume ring, made off brass with glass diamontes, and a 1960’s shift dress which is in pristine condition and made from the most amazing marbled vibrant fabric.  I cant wait for the weather to improve so i can wear it this summer! Unfortunately it is snowing here today, so it may have to make itself comfy in my wardrobe for many weeks to come!

Hellooooo i am back, slightly blog rusty! So heres a slightly rusty tin to say sorry!

Hi all! Its been ages since I last blogged, I am so sorry to the regular readers. I have been pretty run down since Crimbo so I hope you will forgive my slackness!

Now I’m trying to get back into the swing of things and frankly feel like I have tonnes to show you, and am surely going to end up creating a mish mash of posts over the coming weeks of all the bits and bobs I know you will like to see. Organisation never has been a good point so again do forgive any randomness!

I excitedly wanted to show any vintage lovers this really lovely vintage tin I found today. It’s super super pretty and is a confectionary tin for Dainty Dianah toffees. It’s a bit battered but still charming. As always I did a little digging and found this website which is full of all sorts of information on Horners, Dainty Dinah tins. It’s worth a peek!

I found this lovely little children’s book today and just wanted to share the gorgeous 1920’s illustrations by Hilda.T.Miller within. The book is so quaint and although I have not had time to read it, it seems to be a sort of bug’s life-esque story, with each garden bug and butterfly having its own cute rhyming ditty . It really was a great find, and I’m 100% sure its a first edition too which makes it a tiny bit lovelier don’t you think?
