Tea with Bettie Page

Ok, not exactly – but check out these awesome coasters I got at the vintage fashion fair this weekend when it came to Oxford! As well as the beautiful Bettie Page I also picked up a few featuring these great pin up covers which I’m sure my fellow pin up enthusiasts will recognise, and many of which I’ve taken along for inspiration for my own retro photo shoots.

Unfortunately, the seller of these lovely little coasters is something of a mystery – they don’t sell online or have a name, but I’d say it’s a safe bet you might catch them at a vintage fair near you. At just £10 for 4 it’s worth gambling the entry fee to find out!

Obviously it would be silly to come home with a bag full of coasters and nothing to drink so I decided to stop off at Whittard and grab some tea and Christmas White Hot Chocolate which is absolutely scrummy – I can’t wait to try experimenting with it in some cake recipes!

Hot chocolate or cocktail, I can’t quite decide what to try out on my new coasters first – how about a Hot Choc-tail? Check out these fab recipes I found on Pinterest.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I think that’s the kettle I can hear boiling.
