As Yet Untitled...

As you can see, one of this year's goals hasn't done too well so far as this is my first post since the 2nd of January! Mind you, I've been cooking a bit more. We had friends over for dinner on Sunday evening and I did a tapas-style spread, inspired by the River Cottage Veg Everday Book (Christmas Present from Mr R&B). No pictures as we were all too hungry to wait! I'm a big fan of Hugh F-W, but being a veggie means most of his recipies are no good to me. I was overjoyed when the TV series aired last Autumn - I was nearly dribbling at all the gorgeous food I could actually eat!

I've yet to really do anything about the business, but I've managed to clear some of the clutter on ebay which is a good start to the year.

I was going to do some outfit posts, but I'm afraid I'm becalmed in a sea of maternity clothing mediocrity at the moment. However, I refuse to spend the next 6ish months in stretch jersey hell, so this will change soon!

I've mentioned before that the charity shops near me have pretty slim pickings vintage-wise and are usually pretty over-priced, but you do get the odd gem.

Here are two things I picked up this week:

70s? carved wooden plate 50p

 60s Cecil Series 'Continental' table set £3. A couple of the eggcups are a bit chipped, but otherwise it looks like its never been used. Maybe a wedding present to someone?

2012 Is The Year...

I don't really bother with resolutions - they feel too much like obligations and get broken within days. Instead I've got a list of goals for the year, in no particular order:

1. Grow my vintage clothing business.

2. Blog and comment more.

3. Make an effort style-wise.

4. Cook more.

5. Pay off my debts (finally).

Looks like a busy year ahead then - we're also expecting our second baby in early July!

Happy New Year to everyone, may 2012 be your best yet x
