So you have bought a piece of chalk painted furniture or having painted it yourself, you are now thinking, how on earth do I keep it clean?!  If you have painted it, you will have most likely spent hours and hours making it look absolutely stunning and even though it has that shabby chic, distressed look, you don't want it covered in little people's messy fingers, discarded food or water marks.  First thing first after you have finished painting, you will need to make sure the piece is sealed, either with wax or a water soluble varnish (and oil based one will...

Decorative Vintage Styling Workshop

A few months ago on Instagram (my favourite place to hang out!) I came across Katie (@thevintagehousethatcould) and Tamsyn (@tamsynmorgans). Katie has a beautiful account full of gorgeous flowers styled with vintage finds, whilst Tamsyn is an interiors blogger and stylist whose account was equally gorgeous! Now, I have been trying to improve my styling and photography for awhile now and when they joined forces to run a Decorative Vintage Styling Workshop, I knew I had to go!

The Everlong range of colours are all stunning, containing many pastel shades with a few brighter shades, such as Dijon, Miss Scarlett or Misty Mauve.  I found two folding chairs at a car boot sale, which had a lovely shape...

Using Vintage Suitcases at your Wedding

Using Vintage Suitcases at your Wedding

If you walk around any vintage emporium you will see worn, tatty and well loved vintage suitcases. I like to imagine all the places they have been or the stories they could tell us of far flung travels with owners dressed in Top Hats and Corsets. For some reason, vintage suitcases have always reminded me to steam trains, luggage being loaded onto carriages with steam billowing around your legs  Of course, in this modern era the suitcases don't get used as luggage as much. Instead they are given a new lease of life and wedding's are the perfect place to...
