It’s Bouquet! B-U-C-K-E-T!


“Richard a little decorum please, that is not the sort of behaviour one would expect from a person with a reservation for a quailty cruise.” I’m keeping up appearances this week and honouring the Hyacinth, one of my favourite spring flowers.


Here Comes the Sun du du du du


I love the set up of this picture from the paper yesterday. The (waxwork) Beatles on the street in Blokker at the beginning of a tour of the Netherlands before taking up residence at the Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam.



What I actually love the most is the look that John Lennon is totally rocking, white on white on textured white. So much so I’m going to attempt to work a Spring/Summer 2013 wardrobe in the same vein. You heard me, I’m going to channel John Lennon through clothing and maybe glasses. Vintage mens belts are notoriously hard to get hold of because they are rarely put back into circulation when finished with they are inherited (which is apparently the case for all good vintage mens clothing, a mens ware designer told me once) where do I look for a white single breasted tuxedo jacket and how can I pull it off like John?



New Decoupage

I’m so pleased with how the first of a new collection of decoupage has turned out. There is so much more to come, this is just the tip of the iceberg. I’m scouring the globe for antique prints and finding some real treasure. More if which I will share with you just as soon as I can make them!
