Easy Like Sunday Morning

After a boozy night with some of our good mates and a late night Bangladeshi curry, Sunday ain't a day for doing more than catching up with the papers and downing gallons of fresh coffee.

Jon's sold our beautiful '68 Beetle, Tamula, and I've spent most of the morning skulking about indoors while he did his Arthur Dailey spiel. Despite the number of vehicles parked outside the window, I don't actually live on a car lot.

Bodysuit, waistcoat, Edwardian boots (Charity shop finds), Bayeaux tapestry maxi (Vintage shop),  Knitted hat (Jumble sale), Brass and wood jewellery (Various car boots and markets)

 My hair's looking a bit dodgy after yesterday's Ga-Ga inspired bow hence the hat.

Tribal choker handmade in brass ,originates from a hill tribe in Orissa, found in Tamil Nadu.

I paid £1 for 1970's coffee table at a jumble sale last week. The travel trunk (just seen), club chair and the vinyl pouffe are past jumble bargains and the rotary dial phone was retrieved from a skip after a drunken night out. I love vintage glass and have collected it for years, never paying more than a couple of quid a piece.

    My nan had a coffee table just like that when I was little, I swear it could be identical! x

  2. I love your slouchy Sunday outfit. Not a tracksuit or sweat pant in sight! And I expect no less from my vintage muse. :) x

  3. Happy sunday! Your tapestry skirt is one of my favourite pieces of yours and the brass jewellery is beautiful. Again though (and I am interior obsessed... :) ) my eye is drawn to your interior, any chance of more of a peep at some of that glass sometime? (And nice phone!)

  6. How good do you look after a night out??? I'm jealous!! I look rough most mornings never mind after a night out!!
    Am loving the table and phone. I had been after a phone like that for ages, and managed to pick up a black version for £4 from a car boot a few weeks ago. Get me!!

  17. What a great outfit for a lazy Sunday!
    That necklace looks a little mean though!

    I've got a Murano glass clown that I love, coloured glass can look so pretty with light shining on it.

  20. I think I looked a lot better than I felt. Must be Jon's photography skills.
    The table would be valuable if it had the "G Plan" label, sadly it's no longer there but hey, what do you expect for a quid?
    I'll do shots of the travel trunk and the glass collection soon so you keep coming back to visit.
