I'm a little on the shy side and wouldn't usually post about a bra but... While antiquing with my mum on Saturday I found this Triumph 'Goddess' vintage bra. Brand new with tags. And in my size. I have been lusting after a vintage 50's style bra for ages and thought I would never find one in good enough condition, let alone, brand new! 

I love it's pert, madonna-esque fit and can't wait to rock it under one of my 50's full skirted dresses.. Ah, don't you just love days like that where you find something you really really wanted?

Yes, that is a claw foot bath on the deck!! 

I've been on a brief hiatus to the country thus have not been posting as often as I would have liked! Though it was so nice to get away and relax, cosy up in front of the fireplace with a glass (read: several bottles) of wine, read all my favourite magazines in home clothes, take long baths with a view and forget that work exists even if only for a few days.... Usually around mid year I'm hanging for a break and I think this was definitely what the doctor ordered!

Finders Keepers Treasures!

Last weekend I dragged hubby to the Finders Keepers Markets. I hadn't been to a Finders Keepers Market before and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and presentation of the wares.. there was so much that I wanted to buy for myself! Alas... I was there with hubby and we were on a mission. We were looking for some quirky artwork for our walls, which are a little bare. We ended up buying a couple of wall prints, one of which I have photographed below..

The Venue: The beautiful Old Museum Building

The Frankie Stand

One of our buys.. A print by Bespoke Press ( It is one of 50 limited edition prints handcrafted using an antique 1893 letterpress printing press on 100% tree free cotton rag paper.. We thought that was pretty awesome! We love the quote, it just seems like us as a couple in a v cheesy way.

Here are a few of the other items I was also drooling over at the Markets

Headbands by South for the Summer... Stunning pieces really well made with leather and feathers. 
Eat your heart out Blair Waldorf.

Jewellery from Pigeonhole... Very different and pretty pieces. Particularly love the diamond pendant with the black stone inside.
