Roof terrace skies

It has been a crazy few days but we have finally moved into our new flat in Crystal Palace. Lots of emotions flowing and finding it difficult to part with Battersea, but also very excited about hunting out new places, antiques, markets and vintage baby furniture in the South East.

We're not the only ones moving house, although this is more of a DIY project that ours will be. Work-in-progress at the in-laws new home....layers of colour and floral curtains.

Creative merchandising

Another random collection of photos from Antwerp: shop windows, posters, displays, hand-written signs, painted numbers, colour stories.

Shoe styling

A nice bit of visual merchandising with shoes, plastic bottles and.....glow-in-the-dark tape?!

Delicate layers

Fabric-wrapped Albert bridge and flowers from my Mum! Paper-thin petals and semi-translucent skin.

Notebook still-life

A little shout out about my very talented friend Tamasyn Gambell - I love her recent photoshoot with her range of printed notebooks. I almost just want to frame these images, they are so beautifully styled. The notebooks also just happen to be made with 100% post-consumer recycled paper and vegetable oil-based inks, which is fab!

All images credited to Tamasyn Gambell.

The Antwerp menu

One of the best thing about travelling to new places is the food and drink!
*Hot chocolates, Belgium beers, authentic waffles with hot chocolate sauce/cream/ice cream, traditional hand-shaped butter biscuits (for the tourists) and strawberry beer.
*Also a beautiful vintage punched stainless steel cake slice that I sourced as a wedding present for the Vintage Bride - I know it's gone to a good home!
