shabby chic

Today I went into a seriously amazing homewares shop that stocked everything from Parisian inspired paintings, little decorative clocks, floral bedspreads to vintage boxes. The boutique was my ultimate dream and hopefully one day I will be able to furnish a little cottage on the outskirts of Paris with things as charming as what I saw. I have included a picture of what the shop was like. Many of the blankets and covers were quilted and looked wonderful and the boxes and clocks had a vintagey feel. I love the whole 'shabby chic' theme of a house. It makes it unique and pretty all at once and can feel more homely. Today's activities have included some crucial geometry revision and thanks to my brilliant minded mother I now understand everything that I need to! Izzy Rose and I also went shopping for a birthday present for a surprise party. Its a lovely wall hanging with roses on it in a vintagey off-white colour. It also has some lovely swirled hooks to hang a pretty purse or a floral rimmed boater hat. I'm very excited about the party tonight... the only dilemma is that its a black and white theme; I'm a floral girl! Oh well, I will find something. I also included another Polyvore just for fun, I've been going crazy on that website lately and I couldn't help myself! Check out my profile here and don't forget to follow me on Twitter!
