{Just Lovely} Crumpet and Skirt

Posted by Abbey on Feb 14, 2012

Oooh la la ladies and gents!

It is the day of love and whether this makes you cringe on an Olympic scale or glow with glee {that word actually makes me feel ill} then I have a little bit of design heaven that will get you all hot under the collar..

Introducing Crumpet and Skirt {I actually adore that name}..

So what of this fabulously named bit of design heaven..

"Crumpet & Skirt is a gift and homeware range for the discerning pin-up devotee.

Designed by London-based Elizabeth Pinnock, the products showcase original 50'simages of saucy ladies, tastefully attired in vintage undies and assuming a range of coquettish poses.

With ambitions to become a cross between Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn Elizabeth started her career as an actress. After training at The Central School of Speech and Drama she went into the real world where Hollywood forgot to call. Whilst waiting for James Cameron to find her number Elizabeth spent many hours indulging her love of all things vintage and finding other outlets for creativity. Crumpet &Skirt came out of this creativity and the personal desire to produce high quality products like in the old days.

 Elizabeth is inspired by the glamour of pin-up girls, and decided to use them in simple designs that showcase the images in the best possible way. Both civilised and saucy, there’s no need to hide them when Granny comes for Tea…"

Sound fabulous, non?

Lets take a look...

Such a lovely wide range of crumpet covered eye candy...greetings cards, coasters, wrap, cups, tea towels and cushions {my personal favourite} I love, love, love, everything.

Check out the stockist list {perfect for a very last minute valentine pressie} or buy online.

Being saucy has never been so sassy.

Have a great day all you lovers.
