Carltonware money boxes – new collection alert!

I don’t need any new collections. Fact. I have too many already but I can clearly see a new one forming!

10 perfect Christmas gifts to show you care

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.

A Flat Pack Backlash: Choose Vintage Furniture!

I wrote this article for Vintage Life magazine many moons ago and it still feels relevant today. Don’t get me wrong, I love stores like IKEA especially some of their reproductions of their original designs form the 1950s and 1960s but there is just something wonderful about the craftmanship in vintage furniture. Time for a […] Read more…
