A classic black Christian Louboutin heel spikes a 1920's Shelley teacup draped in glossy caviar pearls. Sitting in the toe of this beauty is an art deco green glass spritz bottle, a bridesmaids gift from a favourite friend.

A collection of special pieces from our wedding day
This week the husband and I celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. Time is flying so it’s nice to take a moment to look back and reflect on what was a sensational day for us. The perfect excuse to put together a collection of objets d’art in memory of the day.
Handpainted wooden letters, a sandalwood fan, antique marcasite earrings and a retro bakelite haircomb from Hammersmith markets in London. Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, an antique piece of lace from our first anniversary and the handcrafted flower made of icing from the top of our cake that now resides in the freezer.
The teacup has a special story…but will keep for another day!
Best wishes to all those summer Brides! xxx
PS never fear, the recipes will return next week and the cupcake illustration winners will be drawn at the end of today!
This antique set of scales was given to me by a beautiful friend as a thank you gift for making her wedding dress, she gave it to me with a note expressing this gift symbolised the weight and scale of our long friendship. There is a lovely saying that the best antiques are old friends and this one is a woman after my own heart.
I recently did a commission illustration for a friend whose walls were bare and crying out for some art. His direction was “Anything you want Al…but I like Surrealism.” Fairly broad but we were both very pleased with the results!
