I hope you’ve been enjoying the lovely bright sunshine of late? I’ve jumped on the peony bandwagon and picked up a bunch of beautifully fragrant peonies, they had to be involved with this month’s blast from the past post.
This month I’m sharing my awesome vintage Roberts radio. It’s an old Roberts radio which I had re-covered in some floral oil cloth. I bought an old and very worn radio and found a shop on Etsy where they will recover your old radio with oil cloth and make it as good as new!
If you’re a bit of a hoarder this one’s for you.
If you’re anything like me, you won’t be able to resist keeping any little scrap of fabric or paper with a pretty floral print on it and occasionally you’llwonder what you’ll ever do with it. Well, this is a quick and simple way to make your phone that bit more persona to you. With just a few minutes and some PVA glue.
Spring has sprung over the last few weeks and with that the flea markets and vintage fairs are also booming. Here are a few of my recent vintage fabric finds which will be making their way over to my Etsy shop in the shape of cushions, giant bolster pillows, bags, sketchbooks – you name it what ever my imagination turns it into. But for now, grab a cuppa and indulge in some vintage floral goodness!
I do love May. May is when it starts to look like summer might actually make an appearance at some point again. There are leaves on the trees, the flowers are blooming, floral bunting is strung up and everything just looks so lush and green.
You also can’t ignore the ring of church bells. Yes, wedding season is upon us again complete with delicious-smelling peonies, gift lists and blushing brides. Who doesn’t love a May wedding!?
keeping it short and sweet today, after all it’s all about the pictures anyway. Here are some of my favourite vintage pretties that I’ve snapped up over the last month. Plus a few gorgeous belt buckles that I just couldn’t resist!
I’m always spotting steamer trunks on my vintage fabric shopping sprees (more detail on those here). So I decided to pick one up and upcycle my vintage trunk into a coffee table.
If you’ve got an old trunk kicking around at home in the attic, dig it out and give it a lease of new life. Here’s how you can upcycle your vintage trunk.
There’s nothing I love more than whipping up a truly unique piece of clothing for my wardrobe from vintage cottons. And in case you were in any doubt, it’s floral all the way so come and feast your eyes on some of my recent spring makes.
This month, with spring on the horizon I’ve been sewing lots of skirts – pencil, A-line, tulip – you name it! I’ve also got a lovely new shift dress to share with you.
