Fabulous house in Austinmer

I do have things to blog about I guess, I just forget!

So we went away on the weekend and dreamed and frolicked and likened ourselves to winter rain. (and of course tried to take the week that was and stick it away somewhere)

And we came upon a little gorgeous house in the middle of Austinmer near our fabulous B&B. I WANNA BUY THIS HOUSE!

I suppose watching Madmen has tipped me over the retro edge, but I've oft been fond of a little vintage in our lovely modern world! It is salmon. SALMON!

My attire is sailor dress (made by me) and red boots that totally clash with SALMON house, but if I owned the house, I'd wear pastels all the way.



  1. That house needs a gingham dress to go with it! Or an elvis movie style wiggle dress, like the one in your last post. x

  2. oh my goodness. I totally love that house too!!!!
    I know that pink and red should never go together, but I have a bit of a love of putting the 2 together!!
    I've been watching the Wonder Years and I've been having a bit of a 50's 60's revival too lately!

  3. Hi,
    I just stumbled on to your blog and I just had to tell you how much I'm digging your sailor dress!!! Is it your own design or from a vintage pattern?


    How hilarious is David Sedaris!?! Love him!!!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
