| Sweet! Cupcakes and Treats | Christmas 2010 Collection |

For quite some time now - well, OK, most of my life!! - I have loved old things, from linen, china and glassware, down to I guess what you would call the "sensibilities" of particular eras - like the 1950's for instance.

From post WWII to the very early 1960's, both class and gender lines were very clearly drawn, directed and, for the most part, embraced by society at large.  Women were very clearly feminine.  Families dressed for dinner, and everyone met without fail around the dinner table every night, even if it was to tackle some new fangled thing (TV dinners anyone?!) just launched to housewives everywhere.

There were pretty specific colour palettes back then too.  Manufacturing was advancing, but not fast enough to expand colour choices past electric brights (red, orange, lime, yellow) or pastel gelatos; pink, aqua, and white - aqua and white was, after all the No 1 colour combination for the American automotive industry during this period - and for good reason - they look fabulous together!

So, this year, to celebrate the memory of what was a golden era, I have been inpired to include a heavy sprinkle of 1950's America - I hope you like it!
