Brighton Rock .... Lara Stone inspires a Tilley's Vintage Sale

I have to admit I'm not a massive Lara Stone fan. Smile for God's sake woman! Occasionally? You're newly married!! However the good old Brighton Rock idea was given new life in November's Vogue (due to the new film release) and has inspired me to provide you all with a very MOD shaped sale..... (to make way for a very 70's inspired 2011!)

Check out the crazily priced Tilley's Sale here

with some Nouvelle Vague to cheer you along

love a heavily bouffanted Tilley xxx

Vintage Cookery

Bloody love a bit of cooking to warm the soul, feed my loved ones and to create something sensory. There are so many gorgeous bits of Vintage paraphernalia out there to cook with! I have some stunning 30's embroidered aprons that I'm debating whether to part with at the moment. 

My other favourite kitchen pieces are some of the simplest to come across - it's the putting them together that requires some flair.


An old beautiful set of scales are far more accurate than any new sets as they rely on weights rather than their own mechanism..

Or if like me you use a lot of American recipes , they are so different and simple - cup measurements can be found in the most beautiful styles. I've just brought these amazing ceramic measuring cups from not strictly vintage but look so beautiful they fit in marvellously.

Then there is the never ending collection of crockery. This can be brought from junk shops and carboots and should NEVER match (cardinal rule)...

And my favourite: Vintage glass wear...

Happy Cooking xx
