Frances Chair, £550: 1940's button back chair

Here you go, another velvet number because I love velvet! I've been saving this Designers Guild Alchemilla Varese velvet (to give it it's full and proper title) for a suitable piece and deemed the Flemish chair to be appropriately lovely. And so ta da, here you have the Frances Chair, a beautiful example of a 1940's button back chair, extremely well made with a fantastic quality wooden frame. A really great little chair.

And so the obligatory snow pics! We ventured out in the car on Friday morning and after slipping all over the road I was too much of a scaredy cat to go out again, effectively confining us to anywhere within walking distance from our flat!

We didn't do badly though, Friday a trip down to the Scrubs where everything looked pretty beaut, not a burnt out car to be seen...

Saturday I wandered down to Kensal Green cemetery which looked beautiful if not a little eerie...

And Sunday, the hands down winner, Hampstead Heath. Ambling round here felt exactly like being on a country walk and popping into The Flask for a post walk warmer was like propping up the bar in some quaint little village pub from by gone eras. I dream about living in a cosy cottage with a view of the heath,  mmm, but in the words of Les Mis's Fantine, "there are dreams that cannot be", I think the two million plus price tag has somewhat scuppered my chances!

And lastly, a couple of flute backed cocktails that are in need of a good home. As usual I have an array of gorgeous fabrics so just let me know what fabrics, colours or patterns you are interested in and we can work from there.

Enjoy the weekend.
