I took a trip to Witney with my mum the other weekend and we came across a great little shop called The Old Pill Factory ….

I am finally back after an impromptu two month absence (more on that later) with an Etsy Focus post on The Cupcake Kid – a fab little vintage and handmade store based in Washington DC, USA.
This store features a great selection of quirky vintage items for your kitchen, desk-top and more.
Vintage Letterpress Wooden Type Letters – So Good
How cute are these letterpress blocks?! I’d love to build a whole collection of them. The Cupcake Kid has curated a great selection of vintage letters.
Retro Bright Coffee Mug Set
“Pretty and colorful vintage and handmade: cups, necklaces, pins, bags, earrings, collectibles, pottery, letterpress wood blocks, home decor and more. Beautifully packaged and promptly mailed from Washington DC.”
Vintage Orange and Yellow Flower Pitcher
I love this fun and bright vintage creamer/pitcher. It would certainly liven up my kitchen! It is estimated to be from the 1960s or 1970s and marked ”Frolic from the Avant-Garde Collection Japan”.
Previews of new items going into the store are listed on The Cupcake Kid Tumblr.

Happy Sunday folks! How are you doing? I’ve had a super busy week at work and i’m on a hen weekend currently so I’ve pretty much entirely neglected my participation in BYW2. Hopefully I’ll get up to speed before the final week.
Did you do anything to celebrate mid summers eve? It pretty much passed me by this year.
Anyway, I hope you’re having a beautiful day and you enjoy my round up of fun things I’ve found across the web this week:

I also came across this new publication this week – Stuff Uncovered. It’s pretty eclectic but features a few good articles on vintage homewares and styling that are worth a look ….
I’ve been having a hoot recently browsing the website of the funky homewares label Rockett St George. This online store takes modern vintage to a whole new level.
1. Amazing Bottle Chandelier
2. ‘Ceci N’est Pas Un Livre’ Woman Self Shelf in White
3. Reproduction Vintaged Chair in Blue
4. Adjustable Industrial Round Dining Table with Distressed Wooden Table Top
I love their eclectic mix of vintage industrial pieces and unusual modern items. They feature unique homewares using upcycled materials as well as iconic furniture from well known designers.
Rockett St George can be found on twitter, facebook and even have their own blog. If you’re not familiar with them yet, I recommend you get acquainted …
This week my Etsy Focus post features the lovely little vintage store called Flying Ace, owned by Ashley of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Vintage 1970s Office Replogle Globe
“Old is the new new … Vintage is the new modern … retro is nowtro!”
Vintage Brownie Fun Saver Movie Camera
“I’m Ashley, a 29 year old stay at home mom who loves vintage. I offer unique, quality treasures for every member of the family. My number one priority is customer service and I know that you will find your experience shopping with me to be professional, friendly, and excellent in integrity.”
Vintage Fisher Price Wooden Toy Train
“My shop name, flyingace, is an ode to my favorite comic strip character of all time, Snoopy as the World War 1 flying ace in search of the Red Baron.”
Vintage Industrial Park O Meter
Flying Ace is filled with an eclectic mix of retro toys, vintage cameras and suitcases, as well as interesting homewares items. I had a lot of fun searching through the pages of this little vintage store and will pop back often for retro inspiration.
I’m guest blogging over on the mydeco blog again today – featuring more vintage and upcycled inspirations for your home. Today I’m having a quick look at a few companies who reclaim waste materials and transform them into something new and fabulous.

Happy Sunday all. I hope you’ve all had a good Easter and indeed a good few weeks. I’ve been a little absent recently, dealing with some things at home, but I’m feeling reinvigorated now and I should hopefully be back to a more frequent posting schedule – I’ve so many exciting finds to share with you.
I’m back with Sunday Brunch today – ok, slightly later than brunch time this week – but I hope you’ll forgive me as it’s a bumper-packed edition of all my favourite posts from across blog-land over the last few weeks.
