Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

I *think* the Laura Ashley empire started in the 70's. So, yes, her stuff can be vintage. (At this point I think even 80's is vintage. Scary.)


Beautiful finds :) Oh, and your red beret from the previous post is really gorgeous. Would you have the link to a similar pattern? Thanks.


Hey Shredz,

The pattern is not quite yet availble, but I'll be sure to let you guys know when it's ready to purchase.

:) Diana


You've made me appreciate old things since I've started reading your blog. Regarding the tablecloth, if I had simple pattern, I'd proably cook an elaborate meal. A busy pattern makes me thing of tea and finger sandwiches or desserts. However, the pattern DOES look vintage Mexican or similar. How about Mexican appetizers and some fruity drinks with a bunch of couples over to enjoy them??


Hi Diana,
I love that tablecloth, it is so pretty and has a great pattern.. I think Mexican would be great because it is colorful and full of flavor just like the tablecloth. I know what you mean about people finding all this cool vintage stuff, I guess you just need the right store. Check out Gigi and all her cool finds


I love go "hunting" for all the vintage goods :)So now I barely can wait till spring comes and all the markets will begin again!

as the table cloth... I would serve russian food. The patter looks so much like the russian scarfs with big flowers to me :)


I'm thinking something ssspicy for that beauty of a tablecloth! Maybe Indian?


love the tablecloth it makes me think more morrocan cuisine, the neat stuff always leaves the shop before I can get there so I feel your pain on the vintage finds!!
