autumn adventures

Just back from an amazing week which began in a Romany caravan, took us aboard a houseboat for pirate adventures and finished with Halloween dress up fun...
I am exhausted from so much fun but have more to follow soon....

rediscovering plymouth

Lots of my family history is based in Plymouth but I hadn't really spent much time there for years. We went on a quest to seek out the pretty and the nostalgic whilst staying in the very lovely Imperial guesthouse...

caravan dreams

I am getting SOOO excited about my holidays in a Romany caravan next weekend. I spent most of the afternoon yesterday looking at beautiful images and daydreaming of days spent dancing about in autumnal woods in wellies and a very glamourous dress!

Bette Noir's Vintage Fair

Cupcakes, capes and...cravats!

I planned a weekend adventure back and forth over the Tamar for this fab little event in Plymouth last weekend. We set off from an empty October campsite after a night dancing to reggae and drinking apple strudel cocktails at the Eden Project and arrived ready to shop. Although Mr Perfect Day was disappointed to find that all that was on offer for him was a solitary cravat, despite my persuasions that it would not be so, I was beside myself with excitement! Firstly, I rummaged through dozens of pretty dresses falling quite in love with the white floaty 70's number hanging on the mannequin. I have been searching for theright faux-fur coat for ages and soon it was found, for £10! There were lots of gorgeous handmade items too and I collected lots of cards and contacts ready for Christmas. My favourite was a handmade Victorian style cape which is going straight onto my own wish list!
