Etsy Mini

Buy Handmade

Hello there,
after spending ages only staring at the photos yesterday I finally signed up on Etsy
and these are some of my favourites so far.
Thinking about selling vintage oneday, we'll see...
Have a nice friday!


My First Award! Grazie!

Thank you Jordiegirl for this award, Cinnamon Girl is a brand new blog so I think this will be very supporting for me to go on posting. Although I don't post about my life very much. Hopefully I'll get to know other very nice people like you!
This price is meant to be for bloggers who post from their heart, so I'm very honored.

I'd like to give this price back to these lovely blogs I like, forgive me if they're just a few but again I'm a newbie in blogland:

Diary of a Vintage Girl
The Vintage Kitten
Making It Lovely

So... now I suppose I have to tell you some interesting things about me (forgive me, I'm so bad at it!):

1. I wanted to be a designer or a stylist when I was a kid and I wanted go to art school, but I was not allowed to: this is mainly the reason I have this blog!
2. I collect everything and I have an obsession for shoes and barrettes but what I like most are vintage radios.
3. I used to smoke 20 cigarettes a day but I quit. Two years now and I feel much better.
4. I've been in a band when I was young.
5. I'm turning 34 in november and I hate it because I'd like to be forever young (...).
6. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I have to deal with this every day. I'm taking farmaceuticals, but I'm slowly decreasing.
7. I had problems at school when my grandma died, and I lost all my hair.
8. Now I've got big hair :) and I like to colour them red-ish.
9. I have a good job but I don't like it very much (shame on me, but that's the truth).
10. Honestly all I dream about is to go and live in the country in a lovely English style cottage with my boyfriend and a dog :)

Bye bye now!

Summer Dresses Collage #1


Crazy for wallpaper

As I mentioned in this post last week I've been purchasing the book Wallpaper Projects: More than 50 Craft and Design Ideas for Your Home, from Accents to Art By Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith. The book arrived in no time (the day before yesterday) and I was very happy to receive it.
The projects are very interesting and they are very contemporary although with a vintage appeal. I just love it!


gone to the beach

Vintage pin up postcard I found in a local flea market.
Isn't she lovely?

Make your sunday even more delightful with yummy pic nic food.
Both books are by the food stylist Isabelle Branq Le Page
(on my shopping list for ages now, they're a bit expensive but I'm sure they're worth the price).

Got to go now :)
Have a nice sunday!


Can't wait to receive!

Wonderful things I purchased this week:

1. Wallpaper Projects: More than 50 Craft and Design Ideas for Your Home, from Accents to Art By Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith (lovely people from The Curiosity Shoppe and Design*Sponge)

2. ORLA KIELY for Target - New Place Settings Brown & Gray Large Pears

I'm super-happy!
Hopefully I'll tell you about them soon.
Bye bye for now!

Even if it's sunday today I woke up very early... what can I do?
I just tought It would be nice to share some nice stuff I bought this month.
1. The mint tin container I found in Portobello, London.
2.3. The lovely recipe book I found at Borders, London.
It is from Paperchase wich sells lovely stationery, paper goods and bags. Unfortunately they don't deliver to continental Europe, so I'll have to remember next time I go and visit UK.

3. Cutesy bag from Cath Kidston.

4. Amazing german tea set I bough in a thrift shop here in Italy for 10 € only.

Going to Ikea this afternoon... :)
By bye for now, have a nice weeek end!


Bad computer crash

This is what has been happening... twice a day, or maybe more? My computer is very unreliable so I haven't been posting at all on this little blog. This makes me very frustrated because I have to admit I'm used to use my pc a lot for every sort of things. I absolutely need to fix it.
On the other hand I'm very excited because I'm working on a new project with a friend of mine that will involve design, arts, crafts... luckily my friend is very clever and good at computer graphics so we're working at her place. Hopefully we'll be done soon. Stay tuned! ;)
