Oh the places you will go

We are big fans of a certain cat in the  hat in this house. My favourite has always been "The places you will go." You know the one....

"Congratulations!Today is your day.You’re off to Great Places!You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
 And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go."
etc etc

Teenage boys don't seem to appreciate the wisdom of Seuss being read to them anymore (well they say they don't) now I find myself reciting bits as I pack up FollyandGlee goodies. I just can't help thinking that they must be going somewhere lovely.

Imagine my delight when during a bleary eyed early morning Flickr browse I spied one of our first ever FollyandGlee vintage finds.... the chatrueuse and raspberry vintage eiderdown sitting pretty atop a bed of retro loveliness complete with knitted character!

But wait it gets better cos the lovely new owner teawagon has now created a backdrop for eiderdown and friends that is just outrageously gorgeous. A trio of 70s floral wallpapers in turquoise, blues and cream.

ooo......lucky lucky eiderdown. Please close your eyes now if you don't want to be tempted by a link to Teawagon's etsy shop. Can you resist?


  1. Thankyou so much Polly for posting about this, it does make me happy to know you approve of her new home :) x x x x x x Jane

  2. OOh, I love Jane of teawagon and all her vintage goodies. I must admit I was quite jealous of her acquisition of that beautiful eiderdown, which I had spotted in your shop. But, he who hesitates...! lol. Anyways, Jane gave it the most lovely of homes and it belongs right there with her lovely pillows and gorgeous wallpaper. **Helena
