Those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know I’ve had a rough few days of late. I’ve been letting things (or should I say certain people!) get to me and it must stop! Arrgh… so I apologise for that right now. However, in a much more positive vein, I am very excited to get going with this week’s Thursday Treats as it always cheers me to share such internet wonderfulness with you all, my dear readers and loyal fans 😛

♥ First off – erm..hello? How fabulous are the photos at the top of this post? It was taken by the amazingly fun, cool, quirky and chatty Leah McCormick who I was lucky enough to meet on a cold day in London just before Christmas. I took her for a walk around Soho and down Carnaby Street where she went nuts over the Christmas decorations. Well they are pretty gorgeous aren’t they?

♥ Bride to be, Polly described herself to me as “a complete vintage fiend and lover of the unusual and I’m finding all the on the shelf bridal mags very mainstream for wedding ideas”  and is hosting an afternoon tea for like minded brides to share ideas and inspiration.
“This will be held at my marvellous quirky retro home in East London next Sunday 17th January. Gossip with like minded vintage brides to be about all things to do with your wedding. Browse an array of books on the 1940’s and 1950’s, and vintage wedding photographs whilst sipping on glasses of bubbly and tea and nibbling on a delightful spread of cakes and fancies all served the proper old fashioned way on beautiful tea stands and trolleys.
 On display will be an array of gorgeous wedding goodies including millinery, nipple pasties and garters from Pearls and Swine, jewellery and accessories from Black Pearl Boutique and vintage crockery and props from A Most Curious Party. Also screening in the background will be 1950’s movies including the delectable Father of the Bride starring Elizabeth Taylor plus more! Vintage and eclectic sounds provided by my 1950’s record player!”
