french mannequin
Well guys and gals...I have started the cull...slowly slowly sorting through my belongings, making piles of 'to go's' and 'to stays' and also piles of 'not sure's' is very difficult, because most of the things I have got, I really really I want to keep everything, but through fear of getting buried underneath all this loveliness...some things have simply got to go!
vintage french enamel
So rather than show you all the mess i have made! and honestly! there has been plenty of that! I thought I would show you some new pictures of the things that I have kept and the new arranging of the above picture has been taken from the cold house, where I make my also houses my washing machine and tumble dryer in there...I have stuck to a mainly red white and blue theme...I love all my French and British tins...I haven't been able to part with any of them...well not yet anyway!
happy loves rosie style
hahaha...s'cuse the dust...I took the pic above before I had dusted everything...rotten job, but someone's gotta do it ay!
vintage rose glasses
...and you can slap my wrists if you want..but I have been buying in some lovely beauties that I just cannot resist lately! I know! I can hear you telling me that is not the point of a clearout! but I just couldn't resist these (above) lovely vintage rose glasses, they are a set of six and in perfect condition and..well! I have got rid of quite a few other odd one's, so surely I am allowed a few newbies!?!?
vintage french tins
My next challenge is the shelf all needs sorting out, as the first aid tin has nothing in it and the bread bin is a first aid tin OoOOp's, so its all a bit confusing and although it looks quite pleasing to the's just need a general sort out and shape up!

Anyways...I'll keep you all updated with this cull as the weeks progress.

What have you been up to this week?
Speak soon my lovelies xx

red plooms pen
The other day I was sent this beautiful pen by the lovely Sally at PLOOMS, her company designs and sells these divine ink pens that come in five different colours...naturally you would of guessed that I wanted the red one! 
red plooms
These days what with the internet, we tend to communicate through emails and texting, hardly anything is handwritten anymore...which is such a shame... 
plooms fountain pen
Sally is trying to get people to fall in love with writing again and with her pens...well it's hard not too! These are beautiful ink pens, they are solid and weighty and the ink glides on to the paper with ease,..

(PLOOMING: verb: to handwrite a message in ink and photograph it)

Some words need to be written in ink, so next time you want to say something special

Don't Just Text it - PLOOM it

...And never forget the power of the written word!

Decorating your Vintage Caravan

fresh flowers vintage caravan
Back when we bought our Vintage Caravan in 2009 they weren't that popular...well people still went away on holiday in them, but people never really just bought one to have in their garden to 'play in'! But since 2009 it has been rather a phenomenon and now peeps are buying them to decorate and use for a bit of extra space for the kids, or a craft studio, which ours was originally used for...

HAPPY CHICKADEES are currently reading this blog!
