Kathryn's Faves

Kathryn has her own vintage inspired fashion label, and sells her fabulous creations on etsy. I'll be hosting a giveaway for Kathryn from this Friday, so you'll find out about her shop then. For the duration of the giveaway, Kathryn will also be offering a wonderful 30% off everything in her shop to all Favourite Vintage Finds readers!

Inspired by the 50's, Kathryn loves to create feminine items that reflect her personal style. Here's a taste of Kathryn's personal style - her two favourite vintage finds. Both from the 50's, the dress was found at a vintage fair, and the Amano shoes were found on ebay.

Enjoy your week my dears! See you Friday! :)

Vintage Paree for Me

Not so long ago I was walking past one of my local thrift shops on a sunny afternoon. I wasn't intending to go inside until I spotted two fab framed vintage Parisian prints bathed in sunlight in one of the thrift shop's windows...

I went inside to enquire about the prints. The shop assistant told me she was just about to get them out of the sun. Lucky for me she hadn't done so before I came along. I made the prints mine. And because I bought them both I got them for an extra nice price. They are watercolour prints by Herbelot, framed behind glass with black painted wooden frames. I believe they are both from the 50's. Titles are handwritten in pencil below the artwork.

I've never been to Paris but would love to go - I'd definately visit the places depicted in these prints. The first print you see here titled "Paris, Les Bouquinistes quai Montebello" is my favourite of the two. It depicts the book stalls along the Seine River which are still there today and have been there since the mid 1500's. Notre Dame Cathedral is in the background.

"Paris, le Pantheon et le quartier Latin" depicts an area of the Latin Quarter with the Pantheon in the background.

I hadn't heard of Herbelot until I found these prints. I've found a few tidbits of information online about Herbelot. It seems that not much is known about him or her. Apparently he or she created watercolour Parisian scenes between 1940-1960, and prints were sold mainly to tourists during these times.

The lucky winner of the giveaway sponsored by Silver Spoon Creations is Tori! Congrats Tori! Thank you to Silver Spoon Creations for sponsoring the giveaway, and thank you to all who entered!

Happy rest of the week all! See you next week! :)
