The light is made up of 9 individual lampshades, each covered in different fabric and then lined with a co-ordinating vintage floral pattern. All 9 shades are then hung together in an eclectic, haphazard manner that makes for a spectacular flash of vintage chintz. 

The Traditional Lampshade Cluster Light is £275 from Rockett St GeorgeSee the website for more details.

This one from New Look is similar to a lot on the high street but a lot cheaper.

Leather Sweet Shop Purse by Natthakur

SweetsThere's nothing quite like a bag of pick & mix, especially if said bag is an old school pink and stripey paper one. However, with this Leather Sweet Shop Purse by Natthakur you're more likely to find actual pennies at the bottom rather than the toffee variety.

This charming little bag captures all the fun of an old fashioned sweet shop, minus the calories. Natthakur have taken the unmistakable retro penny sweets bag and fashioned it out of leather to create a quirky purse to be stuffed with change or other goodies. 

The genuine leather purse is handmade and printed in London and is also available in orange or powder blue. £28 from Not On The High Street. See the website for more details.
