My Love For Vintage

Happy Valentines everyone!! I hope you'll all have a very very lovely day. 
My Valentines won't be 'celebrated' until the weekend when I go to visit my bf at the flat! I don't think we have much planned other than cooking a lovely meal together and watching a film (which is perfectly fine with me - I never go 'all out' for Valentines!)

So anyway, as it's Valentines Day, I thought I would share with you my love for vintage! My birthday is actually coming up soon (and I'm planning an early birthday party a week on Saturday!) Currently, this is the little theme I am going for! 
I will be sharing some party ideas with you, along with some party decorations on a budget and also how to achieve your very own vintage tea party! (So keep your eyes peeled for some cake recipes and easy party decorations within the next week!!)

My love for vintage teacups, teapots, anything 'afternoon tea' related is absolutely obsessive! 
The minute I saw this pot at the charity shop, I instantly fell in love with it and couldn't leave the shop without it! I have a real eye for vintage and I definitely know what I like and dislike the minute I see them! After further research yesterday, I found out a little bit more about it. In fact, it is a coffee pot, dating back from the 1940's - 1950's. The brand is Shelley's English Bone China, and I was shocked to find out that their coffee pots sell between a £100 - £300!!
I'm really really fascinated by what you can find at charity shops. I'm also really curious about their previous history and the fact they've had a life before they reached you! This has possibly inspired a blog post on bone china and charity shop bargains!



I hope you have a lovely day!

  7. That teapot is adorable :-) There is nothing wrong with an afternoon tea obsession, it is a very sensible and yummy obsession.
