The hunt

by Kate on June 8, 2012

I had a lovely weekend, spent with my most favourite friend. Copious amounts of gingerbreads were consumed and lots of laughs were had. I was gifted some gorgeous blue glass and the collection is back to its best. The Juki was sold and replaced with a very, very special piece – the blue horse. Popped […]

*sob*

I was woken at 5:19am by the loudest smash. At first, I thought we had been broken in to but with a sinking feeling, I realised the blue glass collection had run into trouble. I loved those pieces. They represent many fun filled days on the hunt and some were gifted to me so I […]

Vintage Disco Diva

by Kate on February 27, 2012

I do love a rummage at a market, especially when you find a gem. My girlfriend is turning 40 at the end of March and she is having a little birthday bash. That means I have an entire month to pluck up the courage and wear this to her party.

by Kate on November 14, 2011

Mr Christian

by Kate on November 9, 2011

Within our family, these shoes are iconic. Mum (at the ripe old age of 21) wore them as part of her ‘going away’ outfit after her and Dad were married. I wanted to showw you a photo with Mum in the shoes and sporting a pair of killer blue flares but somewhat conveniently, Mum “can’t […]

Salvation

by Kate on October 31, 2011

This is one of my favourite corners. It all started with the vintage matador poster that I picked up on a trip to the vintage shed. He needed just the right corner, needed just the right amount of gifted (and totally appropriate) red companions…but something was missing. Enter the most perfect red cushion. I picked […]
