It’s only Hannah Turner Ceramics but I like it…

I’ve mentioned Hannah Turner (www.hannahturner.co.uk) a few times already and I know I’ve pictured some of her pieces on here but I thought it was time to sing her praises and give her a whole post to herself!

Hannah T

I think I discovered Hannah on Instagram and the minute I saw her Birdy inspired range of ceramics I was smitten. I have a distinct memory of being in bed on a chilly night last autumn and springing out to find my credit card, knowing I just had to make a purchase then and there.

Hannah Birdy

Hannah has several ranges of ceramics and they all seem very 1950s inspired to me. I love genuine vintage china, but I also love mixing it up with modern pieces if they really take my fancy and these have done just that!

Hannah’s ceramics are whimsical and fun and you can definitely see the 1950s cartoons influence that she cites.

Hannah toadstools

Hannah works from her home in Bristol and her range includes tableware, money boxes, screen prints and lots more. She often has some seconds on her website too! Definitely worth checking out.

I love my Owls and use them all the time. I’m now hankering after some toadstool themed crockery to continue my Hannah collection. Perhaps they’ll go on my letter to Santa this year!

It is with a pen and paper in hand I say:

It’s only vintage but I like it!

It’s only White Stuff but I like it…

I’ve been a White Stuff (www.whitestuff.com) fan for years now. Lots of lovely classic pieces that can be dressed up or down. This Autumn’s offerings don’t disappoint!

Mossy Thatch Velvet Coat WS

I have owned a rather delicious White Stuff Winter coat before and I loved it. Beautiful quality and a lovely vibrant colour. I now only want big thick, bold, gem-hued coats – nothing else will do! Particularly like the stand up collar on this Mossy Thatch Velvet Coat, it looks very cosy.

Corduroy Cha Cha Dress WS

I also own a lovely corduroy pinafore dress from a previous season and can honestly say it’s one of my comfiest work outfits! It’s a cute, kitsch, vintage style and those polka dots just add to it’s charm. You’ll be snug in this teal ‘Cha Cha Dress’ too.

Brook Knit Dress WS

This Brook Knit Dress has a very 80s feel to me – I’d feel like Maria Mckee in the ‘Show me Heaven’ video! Again it looks super comfy and flattering whilst being perfect for the chilly weather I’m sure we’re about to start experiencing!

Chelsea Boots WS

I’ve been giving lots of thought to Autumn footwear lately. It’s that whole Back-to-School thing you see. I have to think about it now! I’ve been considering some Chelsea boots and I am drawn to the burnished finish on these. Tempting! Very tempting…

Flick Lace up Brogues WS

I don’t need to justify these do I? So, so vintage in their styling! They’d be fab with dresses and tights. A real staple. I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with a brogue and the little leather tassels are an adorable addition!

Some lovely ‘new’ things that will blend perfectly with your vintage look. Don’t thank me – it’s all part of the service!

It is with a satisfied smile I say:

It’s only vintage but I like it!
