Happy Valentine's day

Seen in London last week - Liberty's window...

Gorgeous roses in the shop at the store's entrance

Had to visit Anthropologie - for research only! (Far far too expensive but eye candy by the bucket load...)

Old pieces of picture frame randomly displayed...

Their variation on the bird box...

and their interpretation of the vintage pinny - lovely colours but not for the hardened thrifter at around £30!

But today's best news - I went to an outdoor car boot after several months away. I just loved having a good old rummage again! Not in the least romantic - but it did make my heart quicken! I'll take some picture of my purchases soon.

Have a good week



  1. ooooo, thankyou for some lovely piccies.
    Glad you had a good day,

  2. Glad you enjoyed the day.Car boot sales few and far between round here.Have to get my bargains from the charity shops at the moment!

    Bellaboo :)

  3. Hi Wend, great to see your pictures of London, I am going with my lovely girl later in the week and feel I might need a spot of 'research' in Anthropologie too ! Cant wait to see your boot sale purchases.

  4. Eye candy indeed............ what a lovely set of photos. Even if you couldn't afford to buy (I wouldn't either!) then at least you have seen the things and passed them on to us, so thank you. Look forward with just as much enthusiasm to seeing your latest purchases.

  5. what lovely images I am always interested and very appreciative to see things that I would normally miss if it wasn't for lovely blog ladies like yourself!
    An open air car boot sale so exciting ours start at Easter up here and I can not wait. glad to hear that other people feel the same amount of excitement I do with the possibilities of a good boot sale

  6. I love the Anthropologie website, but not so keen on the prices!
    Looking forward to the start of the car boot season here.

  7. What a great day out! It's great to visit London, isn't it?!!
    Are you having a stall at the Northampton Vintage & Handmade Fair? See you there, if you are!!

  9. Hi
    Thanks for joining in the colour swap x
    Lovely pics...I feel the need to visit the big smoke, just for a trip to Liberty!! I went in Anthropologie in New York in November - and was distinctly underwhelmed!! Some very nice things but the ridiculous pricing put me off a bit!! The bedding and quilts had me drooling, but even in dollars it made your eyes water!!!!
