(It just dawned on me that these Friday posts of mine have for some reason been recently featuring homes of people with careers in fashion, quite unintentionally!)

P.S. My jaw dropped when I spotted these Cath Kidston plates at a local department store (Stockmann's), stashed almost on floor level in the furthest corner of the crockery section. ( As if CK goodies weren't hard enough to get one's hands on over here anyway...) I am a happy girl!

My main object of desire was, however, Vintage Fabric Style by Lucinda Ganderton and Rose Hammick. They say never judge a book by its cover but this time round that was one of the sole things that beckoned me to get the book! (Dreaming of a similar blanket, or two, or three...)
Luckily, the content wasn't a let-down either. Lots of inspiring images covering each room and some special occasions and a few step-by-step projects that looked appealing even for a beginner like myself. And as someone inexperienced in sewing I enjoyed the fact that the book also features instructions on different seams, edges and stitches for altering vintage fabrics.

Also the latest issue of Lantliv landed in the post box. Somehow I've felt a little disappointed with recent numbers but I thought these rose-inspired pages were rather sweet.
We had the treat of having my parents over for the weekend again - it's not only nice to see them but also offers the rare opportunity for us to get out a bit without the children. We enjoyed Sunday lunch in these rather idyllic surroundings with lake views. The food wasn't bad either!
