Now the weathers cooling down we are getting ready for autumn and feeling inspired by pumpkins!...

Indian Summer

I hope everyone is enjoying this surprisingly lovely indian summer!  We are planning a picnic to enjoy the late summer rays....  with a few cozy blankets to laze out on with a basket full of goodies; food, wine and piles of magazines!

Friday's Daydreams.

Fridays are always full of daydreams of the weekend to come... I would love to be spending mine on this beautiful boat  piled full of antique linen and lace!
Hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine and has a wonderful weekend planned!

Pretty Vintage Eiderdowns....

It's that time of year again!

Time to get out the eiderdowns and layer up the bed! So warm, fluffy and they come in the prettiest patterns imaginable - is there anything lovelier on earth?

Time for....

Tea and Cake.
Possibly my two favorite things in the world!

Late summer blooms.....

Love the colours of these hydrangeas..... freshly picked from the garden!

Their tones echo this vintage eiderdown perfectly - this pretty quilt and wire basket will be available from the Velvet Ribbon website shortly!

Why, oh why, do I love Paris....

Is it the food, the wine.... the sheer beauty of the place?
... maybe, just maybe it's all those gorgeous antique treasures waiting to be found! 

Recent Paris purchases include this silk and lace 1940's nightie, a linen monogrammed nightie, vintage floral fabric and pill box, all so pretty!
