Customer Reviews

I am completely smitten with this piece! It is absolutely gorgeous and I can already tell it will become one of my staple jewelry. Melissa was also an absolute pleasure to do business with, I cannot recommend her enough.

Not only was this pendant a big hit with my niece, the seller made a special effort to get it to her on time when I mentioned it was a birthday present! I will be ordering more from this shop - have favorited some things for myself. Love the recycling aspect as well as the artistry of her designs.

The Delivery Room - Sylvia Brownrigg

I thought the story line  and character development was good, and beautifully written, but for me very slow and I found it more than a bit monotonous in parts, with very little actual dialogue. I read three books in between reading this one but was determined to finish it.

The story takes place in London during the Balkan war and is about the Serbian therapist Mira and her relationships with both her own and her husband's family and her patients during the period in which not only is her native country at war but her husband Peter is struggling with illness, which in turn brings turmoil in her relationships with all around her.

Have you read it? would like to hear what you thought of it.

D-Day Landing Sites Then and Now

Few are left to tell the story of the D-Day landings, but today, as we remember the sacrifices and heroism of troops involved in the landings, these pictures of tourists soaking up the sun on Normandy's beaches stand in stark contrast to haunting images taken around the time of the crucial invasion.

Black Sheep Designs UK Cocktails T-Shirt Giveaway

 I would like to introduce Catriona Davies or Cat as she prefers to be called, the owner and creator of Black Sheep Designs UK. Cat whilst  in  the midst of studying and living on a tight student budget found herself more and more in charity shops which sparked of an interest in vintage fashion. Occasionally she would replicate skirts from the 50’s, jumpsuits from the 70’s and even cocktail dresses from the 80’s.

After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fashion, working along with other designers, she eventually decided to combine the skills she had developed over the years with her interest in vintage fashion to create an eclectic women’s wear label specialising in unique, handmade and affordable wear. Fusing retro, vintage and modern styles and shapes, and taking inspiration from previous decades and pop culture, past and present, including versatile and intermixable items, as well as bold statement pieces.

All items are made from scratch by herself in small quantities (or can be made to order), from carefully sourced fabrics and in realistic sizes that reflect modern women’s' shapes and sizes. Black Sheep is based in the UK  and also ships internationally, using a fast and affordable shipping provider. All the items shown here are available in her shop

Cat has very kindly sponsored the vintage syle cropped Cocktails T-shirt (first picture) and the winner will have a choice of size. So here we go, good luck everyone and a huge thanks to Cat for her fabulous giveaway.
 Giveaway is open Worldwide.
