what's in your attic?

My friend was lucky enough to get a job this summer doing property maintenance for an estate agents, in the process of repairing and removing unwanted furniture and abandoned belongings from the houses, he came across some real gems. Lucky enough he's a generous bloke and let his mates sift through the detritus he saved from the skips. I got these vintage celebration cards... and the loan of the 20 seater dinning room table. Score.

santa baby, just one more little thing...

This Christmas I rekindled a somewhat dormant passion for dressmaking, after doing a bit of a Gok with a sequined bolero from H&M and a beaded neck piece my mum had tucked away in her bits-draw. So, with the encouragement of a close friend, who I will refer to as the eBay queen, I'm going to make a kind of New Year's resolution to buy less from the highroad and haunt Brighton's vintage and charity shops more. I might even challenge my time with a few old Vogue patterns. But, first things first, I need a dressmakers dummy.
