Mrs Moore’s lovely things

Part of the problem (or is it the appeal..?) of being online a lot is that there are always interesting links to follow, things to look at, loveliness to drool over.  Noodling around the other day, I came across the utterly fab Mrs Moore’s Vintage Store – and I’m now busy resisting the urge to buy one of everything.

I’m particularly loving the Alice in Wonderland range.  Those gorgeously-recognisable, even iconic, images are reproduced on cups and plates, tea towels and greetings cards, with some beautifully-chosen text to complement them.

The Harley range brings us right up to Art Deco – brilliant, jewel-like colours, gold detailing and oh-so-elegant little cups and saucers. They’re the sort of tiny cups that make me worried I’m going to drop them.

Mrs Moore – aka Ana Moore – left behind an IT career (who wouldn’t?) and started her new career selling vintage china in the Portobello antiques market.  Lucky for us, she’s now safely settled in Herts, and her own gorgeous designs are available online.

I’m hoping that she’s going to be expanding the Voyages Extraorinaires range, too, which seems to just be greetings cards at the moment – old maps of European capitals, with some very dandy looking creatures posing artfully in front of them.  Gorgeous.
