Sunday Snapshots

Vintage cotton reels

Hello friends

I hope you are having a lovely Sunday!  Here are a few snapshots from around my home this morning, things that are bringing me joy.

My rainbow cotton reels, with my dried floral garland in the the back room

I found this little chandelier at an antique fair last year, I love hanging them around the house, they are like jewels and just add a touch of decadence to a corner!

A beautiful handpainted vase I picked up last week at the antique fair in Covent Garden.  I went with my friend Natasha, who owns The Urban Vintage Affair, a gorgeously curated collection of cool antiques and vintage treasures.  We had a lovely mooch through he stalls, and then had lunch, such a lovely treat.  I saw this vase for £10, it’s handpainted and I think it will look fabulous with dahlias in this summer.

I am really wanting to get my crafting mojo back this year, so I currently have a dining table covered in fabrics and my sewing machine.  Before I allow myself to purchase any more vintage fabric, I need to start turning my hugh stash into actual things that I love – cushions, lavender bags, a little case for my camera memory cards.  I am also saving avocado skins so I can dye some vintage doilies and tablecloths.  I tried a couple of years ago, it’s so easy to do.  I will let you know how I get on!
