Especially love the pirat in the top right corner.

Being a textile girl at heart, you gotta love a good old fashion granny doillie. I love when people come up with contempoary ways of styling with them, or making them from new materials, like the bamboo placemat (we have seen the vinyl cut once for quite a while now). Love the Donna wilson doillie inspirred puff and the lap top case from Picnic Decor, and if I had the space, the grand doillie piano by Joana Vasconcelos would be in my livingroom.

Hat art

Stephen Jones is an milliner artist and I always enjoy looking and visually exploring his pieces. A great inspiration and one of my few heroes that I have had the pleasure to meet when I worked in Paris.

Royal Ascot

I find the whole idea of The Royal Ascot dress code quite odd, nice heels (on grass), fancy evening wear dresses and hair dos (for day time), and then hats-the-bigger-and-freaker-the better. Here are some of my favourites. really thinking about doing that to my bike.

Fish and chips

How could this week go by with out a mentioning of my favourite chippy down at Victoria Park? Even though Im a vegetarian and only eat the chips at his place (and pick up the cute packaging) it is still a joy to visit.

Monday lemons

Have had a really typical-nothing-works-monday-kind-of-day, and have had some crasy work weeks lately, and therefor my blog has been suffering a bit, but this week I have decided to post great fruit shaped things as they always make me smile!
