Rosie's 21st Birthday Pressie Ideas

   It's my Rosie's 21st Birthday on Friday and although she is now supposed a fully fledged adult, she is really just a kid at heart! (aren't we all!)
 She loves to wear character clothes mixed with vintage clothing and new finds, so needless to say, she has her own unique style!...not being afraid of being different at all!...but rather loving it and gets a 'kick' out of her friends saying that they would never wear what she likes!
 So whilst browsing on the web for pressie ideas, I came across this Bedding range, oh what lovely stuff they have, I can really see her diggin' the Minnie Mouse cushions for her room...she already has Hello Kitty on her bed...so these will fit in nicely! 
I also love this Leopard Print and Rose Duvet Cover, a lovely bold pattern...teamed with the geek chic and zebra cushions... 
I know she would love these things for her bedroom, so I will be buying her a few things from this website...as well as a good few more surprises! sshhh! I can't tell all here, she might be listening! lol!  it's a BIG Birthday after all...so it's worth treating her to a few more extra things...she sure does deserve it, after all the trauma she has been through over the years...

Until next time...

Habitat..Beyond Retro!


I love Habitat and have been a fan since Freddy and I got married 27 years ago...our first house was decked out in Uber modern decor with black, white and aqua...we had the angular white and black head vases of the 1980's and black and white bow curtains that we ordered from Harrods!  
Our ultra modern aqua leather 3 piece suite was from Ekornes and every weekend we used to go shopping to buy some more state of the art home wares for our designer pad....we had a Habitat in Romford, near where we lived and would check out their latest deliveries nearly every weekend.
Once the Boot Sales came into full swing, we  would buy a lot of home stuff from there and that's when we moved into vintage style...it was around about the time when my Nan had to go into a home and my Uncle sold off most of her possessions for £50...

That's when I started to buy knick knacks from my memories of my childhood, but I have always liked a little bit of modern thrown into the mix too...I think done properly...you can create your own look...by adding something simple like a rug or a picture, you can really add a new dimension to your home, and give it an eccentric feel.
 I think Habitat does the vintage modern thing very well, as look at this take on a vintage style picnic basket....full of vintage charm, yet bang up to date with the bright yellow and turquoise...
  
They also have an amazing website, which is where I have to look now, as they do not have a 'bricks and mortar' shop in my area anymore :(

But as you can see, I have chosen a few pictures from their site here, of items that I would love to own...quirky bits and pieces that would fit into my home very well me finks!

 

Habitat have a SALE on at the moment...so it might be worth checking it out HERE.
Do you love Vintage Home Wares or do you prefer Modern?
What shops do you like to shop in?
Do you prefer shopping Online or actually going to your High Street?
