It's no secret that one of my ultimate goals in life is to own my own shop, my own little high street boutique...a haven of beautiful things. I have folders brimming with tear sheets and sketch books loaded with notes and doodles with all the little details. I imagine this cute as a button shop with a French inspired shop front, a rattly old door with a mat for muddy feet...a stand for soggy umbrellas. I imagine rubbed down wooden floorboards layered with cosy shag piles and a resident cat!
If you are ever in Brighton do visit the lovely Blackbird Tearooms. Lovingly and painstakingly restored to the owner's idea of what a pre-war tea room would have looked like. Situated at 30 Ship Street, Brighton, Sussex
