It's been a while but I'm finally able to get back to blogging. Since my last post I've moved house and become a fully qualified seamstress. Just short of losing my sane mind, I managed to do both in the same week. Hows that for multi tasking?
Instead of concentrating on my course work, I spent far too much time pouring over interior blogs and magazines then trawling thrift stores in search tatty old furniture but it paid off in the end. These photographs are from my bedroom, I'm still searching for a 1930's dressing table with an oval mirror and something to hang above the bed. Perhaps a Virgin Suicides style crucifix to hang pretty knickers on.
Aside from trying my hand a interior decorating, I've been languishing is bed reading The Camomile Lawn and Wuthering Heights. As well as carefully pursuing the sales. I can't quite believe that I've never read Mary Wesley before, she stole my heart and almost knocked Nancy Mitford off the top stop on my list of favourite authors... but not quite. I can't wait to start making my way through the rest of her books.
The boater hat and pink dress were two of my sale finds and perfect editions to my summer wardrobe. Is it just me or does anyone else hang up their new purchases... just to make sure?
