Get on your soapbox anytime sis!
Well I’ve been supporting a couple of events this week and I am cream crackered, I feel like I’ve been dragged through a hedge backward. The venue was lovely except the door to the conference room sounded like a woman giving birth, so you can imagine my joy to be free, well for now anyway!
So to chirp me up on my way back to the Pimlico I decided to take a detour and I made some fabulous discoveries. Most prominently Retromania, a charity shop specialising in vintage threads! JOY! It’s a proper rummage shack with antique-y knick knacks, books and old sewing patterns AND there was not only a sale rail, but a £1 rail! Golly, I was in heaven, made a few excellent purchases most notably a lovely gray dogtooth pencil skirt with threads of red, blue & sandy brown running through it, £1! What more can you ask for!
There was an abundance of bakeries & delis as well as lots of little boutique shops for those with more than a few pennies in their purse. Stumbled upon a few more charity shops, and they’re all so pristine with proper good high street label stock – obviously someone other than me watched the Mary Queen of shops charity series! I’m not too sure I’m keen on that though, takes all the fun out of finding a bargainous diamond in the rough. And holding your nose is a small price to pay for a fabulous find!
But aside from the boutiques I spotted this exquisite door, I’m not sure if it’s waiting to be painted or if someone worked really really hard to make it look like this but I just thought it was beautiful. In a street of immaculately manicured town houses this just tipped the balance.
Ruddy love you xxx
