Above is a dress from the Pucci new collection, utterly sequin heaven!
Its not just the beading each print is unique, you can’t mistake a Pucci print. Since the late-1940s, when Italian skier (he used to go skiing every year and decided to start making printed ski suits) and he was an utter socialite, Marchese Emilio Pucci casually tried his hand at design, this label has been synonymous with bold, brightly colored graphic patterns with a kaleidoscopic, slightly psychedelic feel. Totally head ache inspiring and causing as I stare at them for hours.

I recently came across someone else fond of ric rac. I totally adore this smooth zig zag curvy trimming, in bright colours or metallics. My favourite has to be lime green and purple i think. Although, i'm not really sure why.
I am extremely desperate for the jungle print skirt, i know it would be my favourite skirt ever!!
If i get chance to buy one, i will take a thousand photo's of me wearing it, and put them on here for you all to look at.
The apple print one has to be a close second favourite, i adore the bold print and fabulous cut of the skirt, a classic.
The above picture is another favourite, picked from the vast choice on offer. It is a 'Ribbon print' skirt which is extremely folke-y and like a kitch tapestry you can wear.
If you're wondering where these devine handmade pretties come from they are from:

We have realised that you can find it all under one website roof http://www.etsy.com/ whether it be a purse, a painting, a printed dress, a posh apron, a pretty embroidered bag, this place has it all.
A truly magical place where every click of the mouse, opens cyber doors to hundreds of Aladdin’s caves.
Truly wonderful. Nearly as good our Aladdin’s cave otherwise known as http://www.robsonandmason.co.uk/

This is our first blog. I am writing this on a bleak, dull, English ' April showers day' and i plan to bring sme sunshine into your life, if not your computer screen.
I think we should start with the popular '7 random things about yourself ' that seems to be floating around at the moment.
1: Ok, here it goes:I am obsessed with enamel things, enamel clocks, enamel paint, enamel pots for cooking with, enamel bread bins. In fact the obsession with enamel bread bins should be in a category of it’s own I feel. I have several.
2: I love dunking my biscuits in coffee and tea, but actually hate coffee and tea as a drink. Eugh!
3: I love chickens, chickens in my garden, chickens on my aprons, chickens on my cups, chickens that are free from battery cages.
4: I adore green and magenta everything- separate together, stripy, patterned, flowers with green stems, odd socks.
5: I collect fabrics, like a child with favourite toys, I collect them like they are going to out of fashion. Corduroy, printed cottons, printed satins, tweed [preferably Harris Tweed], adorable tea towels, children’s clothing samples. I mostly adore things that are printed though.
6: When I’m feeling low or tired I eat a tablespoon of icing sugar.
7: I adore unusual wallpaper, below is the wallpaper from my hallway, i adore it.
So, there are my ‘7 random things ‘please leave a comment in the comment box with yours if your feeling happy.
