Its been so lovely and Autumnal today, the sun is out but there is a chill in the air. Its perfect weather for a nice long walk. Sadly, I've been at work, so no time for walking! I have though been wearing warming colours of reds and oranges this week, I think it suits the weather. This combination below is one of my new favourites : sheer coral blouse with a nice thick vest underneath and a cosy scarf.
Its not quite got to the point where I need a huge jumper as I'm not outside much, so this blouse is really nice to wear, and I have been wearing it with this thrifted rose print skirt. The pattern is gorgeous and it feels really autumnal with the colours. I have been wearing it with nice thick tights and cosy boots though to keep my feet warm (always the first place to feel the cold!)
This afternoon I finished work early and had to pop to the Supermarket to get some bits for dinner. I decided to skip into the charity shops on my way, and was pleasantly surprised to spot this red enamel coffee pot up on the top shelf marked "damaged, £3". The only "damage" that I can see it that the hinge is broken, but the lid still fits and its in quite good condition too.
So I came home, gave it a little clean and scrub before popping it in the kitchen next to this pastel blue one, which I bought in Fleetville Vintage Emporium. I really love enamel things, especially for the kitchen, I'd love to start a collection, old enamel bowls, and utensils, jugs and tea pots. I also really love those little enamel candlestick holders you get in lovely colours. I think they make a room feel so cosy!
We have been doing a little bit of re-jigging at the BFs, introducing some pretty glass bits and bobs that I myself have been purchasing. I found this gorgeous vintage glass cake stand in Camden Market and decided it had to come back with me. Luckily the BF says its ok to keep it at his, and all my other junk too! The glass jars are waiting to be filled with sweeties, I am thinking sherbert lemons and strawberry bonbons would look nice.
This lamp is one of those clever touch sensitive ones (honestly, I've never been so impressed with a lamp before!) its nice, but I am thinking it needs jazzing up with some pretty fabric. But then again I am thinking I wont be allowed, it does give off a really lovely cosy light though!
I think cosy is my word of the moment, I have been lighting tea-lights every night, keeping the lamps on to give a lovely glow. This tiffany style lamp is my mums and gives off a really warming light. The clock is Laura Ashley but found in a charity shop! I like that it has a retro kind of look. Thats always what I'm looking for when I buy things for home, or the BFs. Retro/vintage style items that create the look I love, but on a budget!
Also keeping me cosy is a nice big mug of tea (in a Union Jack mug of course), a naughty little treat (I love Tunnocks products, so nostalgic and sooo yummy!)
The little tea plate is "on loan" I took something home on it from a tea party, and am slightly dragging my heels about actually giving it back! Its so cute and yellow!
I hope you have been keeping yourself cosy this week :)
