Monday Musings With A Little Embroidery…

Vintage Military Jacket - Hand Embroidered

Hello darlings! I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Mine was absolutely gorgeous, fantastic weather, scoops of ice cream, with lots of sun.  Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the Capital Jazz Fest, but I used the time wisely by getting a lot of projects completed, that really did need my immediate attention.

One of the projects I finally completed, was to list this gorgeous hand embroidered military jacket, painstakingly hand sewn by the wonderful Ms. Althea Anderson in London.  You may remember Ms. Anderson, who wrote the wonderful guest blog post: “A Floetic Night With Floetry” click here to read her superb account of what must have been a beautiful and enchanting night.  As you can see, she is a woman with many talents!

You can find this unique and one of a kind jacket in the Maylana’s Closet Etsy boutique. Shop Here  The jacket will also be available in the “Blog Shop” within the next few days.

Wishing you a Fabulous and Productive week!

Monday Musings!

A Monday Muse

Happy Monday Luvvies! Isn’t time flying! Already it’s the first week of May; very soon, we’re going to blink and it’ll be Memorial weekend, are you ready?  It’s the Spring bank holiday in the UK, so the family back home have the day off {lucky them!}.  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.

My weekend was spent donating clothing and thrifting.  It was time to clean out my closets, and get rid of things I know I’ll never ever wear again; remember one woman’s cast offs is another women’s treasure.  It takes me a really long time to donate my clothes, because I’ve donated items in the past, and then a year later, gone to look for that particular item to style it a certain way, because I was inspired by something I saw in a magazine, only to realize I no longer have it!  I did pick up a few goodies, of which, I did not have time to take photos of; I’ll try to post something for you soon.  I’m truly addicted to vintage shopping, at least I know, no one else will be wearing what I’ve bought!

Wishing you a fantastic week, see you soon!

And remember…

Vintage Coat

On Sunday, the most amazing afro caught my eye, and that’s how  I met the most unique and extraordinary woman by the name of Makkah, who is the owner of Revolution Vintage in Baltimore.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was in Baltimore, and happened to stumble upon this charming little boutique.  While there, Makkah and I struck up a lovely conversation, whereby, I purchased what I thought was one of the most beautiful vintage coats.  Makkah offered me the most wonderful deal, once I told her I was a blogger, which I could not pass up, so wonderful in fact, I dare not tell you how much!

The best way to describe Makkah’s boutique, is it’s a delightful bazaar of unusual and eclectic finds; like a Magpies’ nest of colourful and shiny things, you don’t know what you should look at first.  A hodge podge mix of vintage dresses, coats and scarves hung on coat racks and laid across old fashion sofas, fabulous accessories spilled on a dresser for good measure.  As you can see, Makkah herself is a stunning vision of colours, and creativity, exuding the most artistic of auras.  I found her when the market was nearly closing, because I’m sure I could have spent half the day with her if I had found her earlier.

You can find the lovely Makkah on Instagram @revolutionvintage, where she has some of the most amazing photos, or if you’re in the area, visit her boutique at the Patapsco Indoor Flea Market in Baltimore.  It’s so worth it!
