Elizabeth – Our Queen

On a recent shopping trip I found this lovely copy of Elizabeth – Our Queen by Richard Dimbleby. The book is in good condition and has a dust jacket. It is a nice souvenir to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the coronation.

Toffee Tin

I love a vintage tin and have quite a collection of my own, they are so useful for storing little bits and pieces and look prettier than a cardboard box. I was quite excited to find this Blue Bird Assorted Toffee tin featuring a Yacht Racing picture. The bottom of the tin is a lovely blue colour and there is a lovely design inside the lid. This tin is available here.

Add Some Vintage With Books

If you want to bring a bit of vintage into your home an easy way to do it is with some vintage books. Lots of people choose Penguin Books like these that we have in our living room.

Another good choice is Ladybird Books, I have built up a large collection that we have on our landing.

There are lots of other options such as these books published by The Reprint Society in the 1950s. Look out for books with attractive covers that feature mid-century designs and colours.
