I can’t quite believe it’s been nearly two months since I last blogged. I promise I haven’t gone away for good, I’ve just been incredibly busy working away from Vintage-a-Peel for all this time. The website is still up, I’m still on Etsy, and there will be new listings in July. You can also find me still posting away on Instagram, so please do follow me over there if you’re there too.

Today I stumbled across this dreamy book by Rebecca Blake, a New York-based photographer whose work informed and was used in the cult classic film, The Eyes of Laura Mars. It’s safe to say that I’m smitten, not least because she also directed the music videos for ‘Kiss’ and ‘Cream’ for Prince and photographed Duran Duran for the cover of Seven and the Ragged Tiger.
