A truly beautiful Minxy mix of charm, inspiration, practical advice, and pretty projects to simplify and beautify your life and home. - Jane Brocket, The Gentle Art of Domesticity
I was in at The Mint yesterday for a meeting with an old colleague who now works at Historic Houses Trust. She gave me a wonderful tour of their collection of vintage lino floor coverings, wallpapers and fabrics, and I even got to carefully flick through a 1920s edition of Home Journal, the magazine du jour for the ladies-who-lunch set. Well worth a look if you have the time or the inclination.
I was also introduced to The Mint Shop, stockng commissioned artworks such as these paper butterflies made with the Trust’s vintage prints by Catherine Swan (also responsible for the stamp-filled heart I admired in a magazine a while back).
What’s the saying? I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like… these are on my wishlist.
