Find of the week! Beautiful vintage wallpapers...

I found these gorgeous original 1930's wallpapers at a fair last week and have been thinking of reasons to keep them ( of which there are many!). They would be perfect for covering notebooks and boxes but would look stunning  set within frames or used to cover canvases. 
The paint has a matt,chalky finish and as they are hand printed the paper takes on a unique layered, almost 3D effect. The bouquet design is by Paul Gruin who work is archived in the Victoria and Albert Museum collections.

Twinkle, twinkle...

I bought 2 delicious cage chandeliers this week. Dripping in beautiful twinkly drops they bring drama and romance to a room. Although not an identical pair, they make perfect partners.

This fabulous photo app takes us back a hundred years!
