Hello! before we got and made the blog i went to a craft fair (13/10/12) which was located near Winchester  it was beautiful, with all you can think of vintage. I only bought a couple of items, but the items i did buy were the following:

The first item i bought was some bunting, i can not exaggerate enough how much i wanted some of this. It took me a while to find it but when i did i had to get it. It's one of those things that is rare to find and when you do find it, it has to be perfect. I wasn't sure how it would fit in my room with the colours but it fits like a treat and it was only £6, which i don't think was bad at all. 

This is a close up image of one of the materials, the detail is beautiful. You can really see the embroidery and how neatly it has been cut and made, i am very pleased with this purchase. 

This is the most gorgeous tissue holder! i never knew these things existed until now, i was so shocked when i found it, and when i did find it i had to buy it. The material is like Cath Kidston which is why i love it, it securely holds tissues and it such a good size, it makes tissues look fabulous. Why didn't i find this sooner? 

Here is the underside of the tissue holder, beautiful!
The second item i bought was this gorgeous owl, when i saw it i fell in love with it. It's so unique and hand made so it makes it even better. It has a variety of patterns, some of which are floral. This item also reminded me of Cath Kidston, lovely! I also liked the way it looked half asleep, this is even better haha!

Here's a close up of the patterns, they are extremely pretty.
 Furthermore this then leads me onto the latest footwear i have purchased. My mum insisted on me buying some new boots, so i did, i got these beautiful black studded boots from River Island and if i can remember rightly they were roughly £35. They were just what i was looking for. I also bought these before we made the blog so thought it would be nice to include them as well as this is also a fashion blog.
I am so pleased with this beauty's look how amazing they are. They also remind me of Doc Martens ( which is a good thing yay) This is a side view of the boot with the laces done up. 

This shows the back of the boot and really shows off the studs and how and where they have been placed on the boot. 

Next! Today (20/10/12) i have been shopping, yippee! I only went to Guildford, but i love it there, only because there is a Cath Kidston. I didn't buy much anyway, but as they say, less is more i guess.
The first thing i purchased was:
Oh Comely, i love you. I had to purchase this after Sophie reminded me the new issue was out (issue twelve) i am so excited to be able to sit down and read this tonight

The inside is just beautiful 

Even the back's lovely 

This brings me on to Cath Kidston, i didn't buy much from in here, just a mug. I have always wanted a Cath Kidston mug, and today was my day, (picture below) My mum also came into the shop with me and we were walking round thinking how much we would love everything, so as a christmas present i said how much i would love 2 of the cushions, so from a present from my nan, this is what i have. I couldn't take a photo of these though as they have been hidden away, even though i know about them, i will show these at christmas, i cannot wait!
Gorgeous, cannot wait to drink out of this tonight.

It's building up happily, not to mention how many Company magazines are sitting in my draw.

Hello! Just want to apologise firstly for the rubbish photo quality, but it's the best I could do. I wore this outfit this morning when I went to a local craft fair with my parents. I love this time of year, when the community gets together and inspire others with their beautiful Christmas gifts etc. I saw so many lovely things today that I wish I had the talent to make. Unfortunately, I'm not very creative. I'm so jealous of Olivia's talents!

Anyways, onto the outfit. I adore this mustard scarf my mum got me for Christmas last year and this is the first time I've worn it this autumn. I love the contrast between the mustard and the grey, of my tshirt. I bought these tights along with a star pattern last year, but have never worn them before. I actually didn't mean to wear all of h&m by the way, haha.

I bought these beautiful little postcards at my favourite stall. I bought these beauties for 50p each, yay! I got chatting to the woman who designed them and she said she bases all her work on what her three teenage daughters say and do. I can't wait to put these postcards in the spare picture frames I have lying around.
This one is probably my favourite! I recommend checking out Caroline Kirton's website, because she has so many beautiful designs!

             Sophie & Olivia
We're Sophie and Olivia. We're sixteen and fifteen-years-old students from Hampshire, England. We are both interested in clothes, books, cats, bunting and anything Cath Kidston. 12 Tea-Cups is just a snippet into our lives. We spend way too much time on Instagram and we wish everything could be filled with pretty cushions, scented candles and notebooks with Of Monsters And Men on repeat.
