OMG I’m in the book !! “Pretty Pastel Style” by Selina Lake

I¬†received my copy of Selina’s brand new book a couple of weeks ago and was completely overwhelmed ¬†to find so many pics of my house in it.¬†I’ve taken photos of the pages and I’m not going to write anything with them because that would make me feel silly, like when an estate agent shows you round a house saying “this is the kitchen, this is the lounge” and you just want to ask him to please go away so you can look round in peace. ¬†The photographer is Catherine Gratwicke and the words are by Joanna Simmons.

Pitfield Cafe London

Day in Hoxton 024

Last weekend I went with a friend to Pitfield Cafe and shop in Shoreditch.

Day in Hoxton 011

We had the most delicious lunch in the lovely cafe

Day in Hoxton 014

I didn’t take any pics of the cafe because it was full and it didn’t feel right pointing my camera at strangers.

Day in Hoxton 013

It’s a very large space and about three¬†quarters¬†¬†is the shop.

Blury pic of a bit of the food counter.

Cabinets full of vintage glass

Beautiful huge old prints

Day in Hoxton 012

Cosy corner and lots of fifties crockery exactly the same as my grandma used to have.

Day in Hoxton 022

The waitresses were very friendly and actually wiped the crumbs from the tables into their hands and not onto the floor like some places (drives me insane).

Day in Hoxton 023

What I loved most of all though was the wonderful frontage which I think is outstandingly amazingly beautiful. Just Ahhhhhh

My kitchen table at the Pop up Shop

a table full of loveliness

cushions, lavender hearts, purses, mini bunting

I took this photo at my Pop up Shop in July. It was hard to ‘style’ it nicely because there is so much and because the lavender hearts are in cellophane bags and they slip and slide all over the place so I just plonked it¬†attractively¬† on the table and hoped for the best. ¬†There is a selection of all of these at my ¬†on line shop

cushions, lavender hearts, pin cushion hearts, mini bunting, purses. All made from the most beautiful vintage fabric.
