Pots and Pans, and Orla Kiely fans!

Firstly before we begin can we give my husband a big round of applause for coming up with this title! So as you know I do love a bit of Orla Kiely. It’s odd as I don’t usually go for reproduction things especially in the home, but there is something about her prints that warms […] Read more…

High Street vintage reproduction: yay or nay?

There are a lot of vintage inspired homewares out there on the high street and I mean A LOT. Now you may say this is a great thing, as it is a great entry into vintage for the masses, or you may well be firmly in the camp that says stop copying the originals. Whatever you […] Read more…

My favourite vintage inspired cushions

This week I did a photo shoot in the most amazing house in Manchester. It was filled with amazing vintage, beautiful coloured sofas and packed with fun, kitsch homewares without any of it looking kitsch at all! The one thing that struck a chord with me, was the amount of cushions they had everywhere. They […] Read more…

Vintage Christmas bauble wreath as featured on Kate Beavis Vintage Home blog

I recently found a very squashed 1960s/70s vintage wreath in a local junk shop. Once spruced up I felt it needed more vintage-ness added to it to make it look its best. This is something you could even do with a modern wreath as it is so simple and easy to do – it’s a […] Read more…

I know my blog is about “stuff”. Vintage fashion, homewares, furniture, weddings all equal lovely things, but that’s just it – they are just things.
