things with a history

In my last trip to London in february I saw this book in the Anthropologie store and it looked so interesting i was going to buy it. Then i thought it was better to wait (I aready had several mad shopping sessions) and see if I could find it on the internet later...
The little thing was delivered to my door and is making me very happy! It is so interesting that even if I'm super tired after work i have to read some. There are plenty of informations if you want to know more about vintage clothes and fashion history, it is very helpful if you have doubts on dating and sizes. There are even caring tips. I would reccomend it!

And talking about things with an history I bought this dress in Spitalfields market in London form an italian girl who said she bought it in San Francisco. Cool, isn't it? :)
It doesn't look amazing in the photo (sorry about that) but i can assure you that once weared it is lovely. Perfect for spring.

Last but not least this very famous book featured everywhere in blogland. It has been in my wish list for ages, now i finally managed to buy it in a very cute compact paperback version.
It reminds me that "one person's junk is someone's else trasure". Sure!
Have an happy W/E!


Scandinavians do it better

I'm in love with the items you can buy from Huset
especially these bowls and mugs form Sagaform (design Lotta Odelius).
You can browse the whole Sagaform catalogue here.

You can find this series from Gustavsberg too. It was designed (in the 60's-50's, I guess?) by one of Sweden's most important designers and illustrators, Stig Lindberg who has been working with the famous porcelain company. It has been relaunched now. Isn't it cool?
I like cups and saucers, mugs and bowls, they're so cute! Perfect for everyday use and to diplay.
When you wake up and you feel a bit low they can make your day brighter.
Unfortunately my my cupboard is already very full, so I have to be patient and wait until I'll move to a bigger place.
Ah! :)


We just love it.

Last week me and my bf jumped on a plane and finally enjoyed a little holiday in London.
It was lovely as always but also cold and rainy - of course it was! - we have been walking a lot to see places and I was lucky enough to meet an old friend of mine who lives in the Big Smoke.
Thought you might like some of the pictures - I'll show you my finds later :p
