If I could choose a store to be my closet, I would surely pick Anthropologie! Their clothes are so smart-sassy-cute and beautiful! Each item has a pretty name too like "Cloudfish Skirt", "Catmint Dress" and "Things & Joys Dress". The Americans are SO lucky! :(

Winter Is Upon Us!

Although it's not my favourite season (summer is!), I finally decided to accept the fact that winter is upon us and sought out some interior inspiration to get myself in the mood for this cold and wet time of year.

Keep things tidy in vintage tins!

This one has lots of vintage buttons in it!!

Today I want to share these tins with you that I got from my grandmother. They are about 50 years old and she used to keep sweets in them, my mother tells me. I think they are absolutely gorgeous! The box in the picture at the bottom is mine. I remember I used to play with it when I was little (you can see this by the pen scrathes I made on it!)  but can't remember where I got it from.

Mother's Day Craft Market

I did a craft market today for Mother's Day.
I had one day to prepare but unfortunately I didn't sell as much as I would've liked to.
You can see my stash in the pictures above.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
