Bird Cake Toppers! I don’t know what it is about them, they have won me over with their sweet, rustic charm. They’re a little bit kitsch, so cute and they make me smile!

For as long as I can remember I have had two passions (before my husband came along and made it three) …..
My first passion is Wedding dresses. I have always dreamt of owning my own wedding dress shop – of being surrounded by beautiful gowns and gloriously happy brides, spending days trying on dresses (of course?!) and quaffing champagne, being invited to every brides big day and revelling in the beauty and happiness I helped to create.….. a dream that is, of course, a long way off the reality!
My second passion is for all fashion that would now be termed ‘vintage’. I think this probably stems from the strong belief that I was born in the wrong era – with, as my mother lovingly describes them, child bearing hips or hour glass figure (if you’re being kind) and skin that doesn’t appreciate being exposed to the sun, I have always felt I should have been born in a time before shorts and mini skirts, before the sun tan or waif.
From an early age, began an obsession with films from the Golden Age of Hollywood – anything from the 30s, 40s and 50s starring Joan Crawford, Bette Davies, Rita Hayworth, Grace Kelly or any of the oh so gorgeous and oh so glamorous stars of the era. I just love the fluidity and femininity of the clothes – the luxurious fabrics and the flattering cuts.
