Electra Unisex Amsterdam Girard Madonna – BOBBIN BICYCLES.

If you’re a cycling enthusiast or thinking of buying a bike then check out Bobbin Bicycles website, they have a selection of awesome vintage style Dutch bikes (Pashley’s…) and in a  variety of pastel colours too! I really love the pannier bags too, sigh. I am saving my pennies now to buy a cute bike….and a poncho!



I went to a couple of charity shops around Kentish Town to pick up some cute ‘ol owl figurines. I’ve developed some sort of obsession with owl and dog ornaments, generally anything kitsch and retro. It’s going to slowly overtake the whole flat. I’ve had my eye on a pair of Siamese cat figurines but they’re way too expensive in the posh vintage shops. I will still keep looking…

I need to find more proper good chairty shops and flea markets, my next mission of the week maybees…xx






I’ve been practising with my Pentax mx camera (i mean sam’s dad. He kindly let me borrow it *_*.)  The first time round went a bit rubbish cos I opened it up to take the film out when I was outside (IDIOT!) now i kinda know what I’m doing since I’ve had some advice etc…however i love the vintage/old look of them. I went a bit over board on the focus thing so some of them turned out really really blurry! Getting there just need more practice. Okay so the next step is to use the pancake (right..?) lenses I love that name I think it’s called that if anybody wants to correct me 🙂 and to be a bit more focused most of the time I was faffing around trying to be arty.

Definitely beats a digital camera. Anyway I can’t afford to spend £200 replacing the LCD screen on my camera, bum.

I love Deptford Market, i went there today and there’s so much random and old junk which I like! i was a bit worried that I was going to miss out as I managed to set off late as usual but was there for a while rummaging around so many lovely things.

I picked up some vintage envelopes (really cheap) and spent ages looking through the boxes, a dress for a quid (niiice) and a little hold all bag full of hair, I must have spent so little as well! i was trying to hunt down some old letters, postcards and photos but they sold out apparently, never mind will be there soon. Although it’s a bit sad going through soemones diary and notebooks from the 1950’s…

…not forgetting the weird shop signs of course.
