my parents silver at Mishka's wedding

Some lovely flowers using vintage teapots and beer tankards from my parents pub on the south east coast of England. I am a publican`s daughter and lived above the `shop`for my first 22 years. I started washing glasses behind the bar when I was 14, the legal age, at that time to be on licensed premises.It was a thrill for me to see them being used at a neighbors wedding yesterday...I have never seen them so clean since I bought them to Canada. Don`t you think the girls, brides sister and friend did a beautiful job.

More on the wedding and others I will go to this summer later.

Again I am delighted to be featured in this exotic treasury which is titled Bollywood and features a glowing sari that I have up on etsy. This treasury was curated by beadsnbones who is based in Austria, don't you love these international links, makes the world a more intimate, friendlier place.


  1. The teapots are really lovely, and I had no idea your parents owned a pub! That's really cool. Graeme (boyfriend) admitted to me recently that he really wants to be a publican one day.

    Really gorgeous sari too. The colours compliment each other beautifully.

  2. Agreed. Love the links and your gorgeous scarves and textiles. Merci!
