Vintage puzzles. These came from a house clearance and ended up in my local charity shop. I was attracted to the boxes and the puzzles,put together by my brother, of course bare no resemblance to the image on the front!I found an old family photo frame that the puzzle fitted perfectly and the colours inspired the decor in my bedroom.They are a true delight and testament to my belief that inspiration can be found anywhere,as long as your eyes are open to all!

Today's treasure.

Just found this in charity shop. Saw it late yesterday and did bit of research on label which is Mansfield ( a Frank Russell original). Seems its late 60s early 70s by the look of it. Sleeves are three quarter length and fabric feels like a Crimpelene. Anyway, important thing is I love it.

Found these in amongst a pile of flower prints in the delightful Snoopers Paradise in Brighton. A friend had given me an enchanting framed print of Paris and this led to my idea of creating a Paris feature wall in my home. I had fun finding frames in charity shops and distressed each one to give a vintage look overall. C,est magnifique!
