V I N T A G E 👩 D E T O L A A quick intro for my first Vintage Detola post. Am actually surprised & chuffed I've actually got a few followers already. Greatly appreciated 🙏 So I'm 'Detola aka Tola and I am also a designer maker (my other account is @detolaandgeek). I've always had a thing for vintage, retro & old school. I have over the years kept some things that I seem to have owned forever. And am also a collector. I have always loved colourful eye-catching vintage treasures and hopefully I will be able to share my finds with you. I have a new shop on Etsy (link in bio) with only a few pieces on there at the mo'. But they are one-offs, being vintage, so if you see what you like I suggest you grab it while you can! This throwback pic of me was taken at a house party (somewhere in East London) back in the early '90s. A very good mate of mine dug it up from his archives and I couldn't stop laughing when he sent it to me. Back in the days when shoulder pads were in. Baggy tops were all the rage. This "tie and dye" adire blouse (made in Nigeria) sported by moi I remember so well as it was one of my favourites. Am sure that was a swatch watch I was wearing (pre mobile phones). Still no earrings and definitely make-up free. Who else rocked their hair like Anita Baker's then? #happyafricaday everyone 🇳🇬 🌍 📷: Dele Oyebola

🦡 Badgers are really cute on cups - not when they’re wrecking havoc in your garden! We’re off to Cambridge beer fest today and I’m praying that it won’t be crazy crowded! Missed the last 2 years beer fest because 1. I didn’t feel up for it and 2. it was too crowded. Maybe 3rd time lucky?
Hello! It’s been a stressful week but I think we’ve managed to survive it! When Cody was pretty poorly last week, we were just going on gentle walks! Monday was so lovely and sunny we went and sat in a secret glade in Lowther Gardens (I cant tell you where it is or it wouldn’t be secret!) I took a little picnic (well! two pork pies, cherry tomatoes and cooked sausages for Cody..... it was all there was in the fridge 🙈) And we lay in the sun ☀️ and it was really calm and peaceful! Just 15 minutes! But it was really nice! 😃 we don’t need a lot do we? #earlymorningthoughts#begratefuleveryday#itsthesmallthings
You guys know I love myself a watch key 🙊 ( or like 20 !🤣) ✨ A beauty to behold with her gorgeous chased detailing, I usually go for the ones with the pretty gem stones and gummy cabochons but there is something beautifully minimal about this simpler style of key , while still being utterly gorgeous and detailed ✨ Listed on my website for a steal link in bio ✨ I went and had breakfast at a vegan cafe today with my kids , my sisters and my mama - it was divine ! We had vegan pancakes with yummy fruity toppings, just a complete dream and the kids also polished off theirs 💫 My eldest can be really fussy if I tell him something is vegan so I wasn’t sure how this would go down, but it’s local and just opened and I had to go try it 🥰🌱 DM to buy this piece or head over to my website ✨
Morning! So today’s mission is to paint some garden furniture 🙌🏻 I made this little corner when I was bored of packing for China a few weeks ago, and now I need to finish it off in time for @billywright442 birthday next week 🥳 I’ll be posting on my stories if you fancy seeing what I’m doing! 💗 Have a great Saturday 🥳
Vintage bottles, bought in a little foray to my favourite junk shop yesterday; tiny blooms snipped from my garden; and yes, the wreath I made before Christmas is still going strong. Simple pleasures for the long weekend 🌿🌱

. Feels now Fleeting Morning Mood . . awake early. alone. quiet. still. no push. no need to get up. a growing yearn for that coffee. downstairs. dreaming. in bed still. a croissant comes to mind. thoughts. a little hungry rumble. unusually early. I can smell that taste of coffee beans freshly ground. yearning. still. in. bed. . . three days just me. .
