Musings and Snapshots

Snapshots of September

3rd October 2014


A pink facade and a window box, my kind of home. The Biba Years: 1963-1975, a surprise gift from a friend. Mint and ionic. Off to the Butterfly Ball. My mum in Notting Hill before seeing Kate Bush in concert. Some flowers for you! Four floors of pastel pink and blue. I’ve so much love for vintage plastic. Red, white and blue in Kensington.


I thought it was time my niece had some deer of her own. Say cheese! My vintage Dunlicraft baskets make me smile. Gorgeous pink roses in Mayfair. Dior, YSL and things from the sea. There’s no such thing as too much pink. Roses from my man. The three graces. Easy like Sunday morning.


Hello pink! Flying over Oxford. En route to a new designers show at London Fashion Week. Colour overdose. Two 1960s icons. The hydrangea addiction continues. The sweetest graffiti. Pink Pashley spotting in Notting Hill. Alice’s adventures in vintage.


Fresh air, dining al fresco and antique browsing in the Cotswolds. Pink or blue? A moonlit walk along the Thames with my man. Home sweet home. Esther says hello! I love Oxford. I adore painted houses, have you noticed? A fawn for Friday. The colourful houses of London.

I’m excited October has arrived and I wish you a very happy and healthy new month!

    All your photos make me dream! I miss London so much, I wish I was there! Love your mum's photo, your bambi, your vintage baskets, your antique chair, the London houses, the Notting Hill flower shop (I made a photo as well when I was there)
    Have a nice weekend πŸ™‚

      Thank you, you're too kind! Not really declutting, more like giving everything away and it feels fab!

      And you're most welcome, I always love to visit your blog.

    I love all the pastel architecture you manage to find. My local architecture is decidedly dull in comparison! Will have to keep an eye out for that Biba book. I have "The Biba Experience" but would love to have another Biba book to swoon over.
