Desirable Drapery

The new range of fabrics by Andrew Martin at Rockett St George has me hankering. They’re really unusual and I think would like really striking on a bed head, ottoman or cushions.

I love playing cards but as it’s one of the few games I can win at, it’s difficult to stop me once I’ve started. This croupier fabric would cheer me up when no-one will play cards with me.

This vintage style comic book fabric is all about what young ladies want to be when they grow up, I think I wanted to be at least four of them in my younger days…

Andrew Martin I Want To Be 'Vintage Comic' Fabric - Rockett St George

The Naughty Nurse vintage style comic book fabric is probably not one for your kid’s room, from the photos I can’t make out the text but the design is great, if a little raunchy.

All three fabrics are 133cm wide and sold in 1 metre lengths at £59.50 per metre.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Art Deco Aspirations

Art Deco is probably my favourite design era, our wedding had a very loose (dare I say it?) theme and since then I’ve been hankering after Art Deco in other ways.

This necklace/collar from Etsy shop Amorous Cat’s Attic was on my Christmas list; I thought it would Art Deco-up a few plain tops.

Or this wonderful ring made from Art Deco watch parts from Noble Studios Ltd?

These Art Deco style printable playing card designs from Memories Emporium are fabulous, I’m not sure what I would use them for but maybe the artier among you can think of something?

This antique monocle necklace started life in the late 1800s as an optical lens but Renee Loughlin Designs has given it an Art Deco twist with chevrons. Not sure my deepened frown lines would be worth it after an evening clasping this to my eye so maybe best for decoration. Delivery is very good value from the US.

I adore this Art Deco door knob that Kim Ladd has turned into a wine bottle stopper.
