Afternoon Tea Camps Bay Style

Again these are very old pics taken earlier this year from South Africa. Even in the heat I couldn't resist sampling the gorgeous cakes and sweet treats on offer & loved how it was displayed in elegent glass domes. By now your probably seeing alittle trend emerging..........that on my quest for vintage gems and inspiration for Cutie Pie,  I simply LOVE afternoon tea's, interiors, reworked vintage treasures and vintage crockery.
I love the above teacup light fittings. Originally Cutie Pie used to sell reworked vintage chandeliers by moi which were dripping with vintage silverware & vintage crockery. I still have baskets full of silver vintage teapots and mother of pearl cutlery. Now that I have a new home I am hoping to design two chandeliers & will promise to post pics when they are complete. But as we have quite alot of work to do on our little masion it may be quite some time yet.

However I may have found an easier solution. I recently stumbled upon REcreate by Katie Thompson, which is an aladdin's cave of re worked vintage treasures. Here is whats on my wish list for my new home..........

Secret Garden

Summer is in full swing & myself & Dandelion Daydreamer couldn't resist alittle improtu photo shoot on such a glorious day. Lucky enough we stumbled across the most gorgeous setting, which felt like we had walked into our very own secret French garden. Dandelion Daydreamer kindly let me raid her vintage treasure box full of gorgeous dresses & whimsical pieces that I had to restrain myself from buying her whole shop.

We hope you like the pictures.

Coco Rose bracelet £18 - more coming soon. If you would like one just email us at to be added to the waiting list, as these little beauties always fly off the shelves.
 We have also just released Antique Rose £20, which has a slightly larger rose & I can't seem to take mine off.

Dandelion Daydreamer Etsy shop for all your vintage needs but be warned you won't come away empty handed.

Also take a peek at her romantic blog Dandelion Daydreamer
Until next time, more pics coming soon x

London Trip

I couple of weeks ago I took an inspirational trip to London & I've been meaning to share my pics with you for ages but we have been run off our feet here at Cutie Pie HQ.

  I love going down to London on the train from Norfolk & am full of excitement when I hit the streets. London street style always fulls me with inspiration & of course I also used this chance to hit Topshop as I dearly miss it living in France. I stocked up on cute little dresses which seem to be taking pride of place in my wardrobe. But my favourite part of all was popping into Laduree in Harrods to sample the yummiest macaroons ever & I'm lucky enough to have plenty of patisserie's on my door stop too & I can tell you that I have sampled my fair share of macaroons. But Laduree's packaging is just so gorgeous, that it is my new aim to collect all their sweet ice cream coloured boxes. My favourite flavour has to be the Vanilla ones, delicious.
