I met this lovely Russian lady in Amsterdam the other day. She was really sticking out with her vintage look. Have you ever tried a headscarf? I must admit I really like the Kelly Wrap. Maybe I should give it go and see if I can find a nice vintage scarf.
The Goods Shed in Canterbury is my cup of tea. After living in Italy for some years I do miss some of the food. There is an Italian bakery and they bake daily fresh bread and cakes .We are really in to jam and co, they have a wonderful selection. Great place for me to shop and for Mister kay to have a good cup of coffee.
Every time I visit my friend Shelly's amazing home I realize how much I like the way she has been playing with colors. Her black walls look so elegant and make her home feel very cozy. I brought back some paint for our living room but we are not ready for a dark home yet (I hope one day...).
At the moment there are a couple of new and very interesting interior books out.
The last couple of months I have been very interested in vintage dresses and I noticed they are not easy to find. So I was delighted when the folks from Shabby Apple asked me to host a dress giveaway. I like their vintage clothing inspired range.
One of the reasons why I like Shabby Apple as a company: they donate a percentage of their profit to women's charities.
I picked Snapdragon for you because it's a dress you could wear for a vintage festival and beautiful summer days.To win the dress just leave me a comment.
The dress will be shipped anywhere in the world. I will pick a winner next Sunday the 26 of May.
From now on the Beachside Brocante in Deal on the first Bank holiday in May is my favorite vintage hunting ground. There where so many interesting stalls. One of my best buys that day was a green Fiesta jug.
Make sure you put that date in your calender for next year.
Not sure why but wooden spoons make my heart beat faster. I just love them. Jill Swan& Louis Ellis had a wonderful show at the Horsebridge. Jill is also giving workshop spoon carving, guess Mister Kay would enjoy that very much.
I was lucky to take one spoon home ,they were selling so fast.
