Well it’s only a week away and I can’t wait! Southam Retro Revival will be taking over the town with vintage cars, stalls and entertainment. I’ll be on stage at 12.55pm AND hosting a stall of my vintage and vintage inspired stuff. I’ll have clothing, accessories and some homeware, so make room in your cars to bring home a load of goodies!

Tennessee Wig Walk


I thought I would share this video with you. It’s Betsy Rose and I singing Tennessee Wig Walk in the garden yesterday!

I’ve been singing it on the way to nursery school for a few weeks now and she loves it.

Stratford Herald 9th May 2019

I haven’t been to the Stratford Festival of Motoring for at least 10 years. Many years ago, you just had to wonder down the little road on Waterside on a Saturday to see a plethora of amazing classic bikes, sports cars and rods. It was THE place to be seen with your customised vehicle and I remember drooling over Harley Davidson low riders and the odd classic car.

This tradition got banned because of complaints from the home owners. It was a shame, but understandable. Now, unless you like to sit in carparks, this car show is the best way to see some of the amazing vehicles that once could be found parked up in town.

I saw some really wonderful cars and campers, but would’ve preferred it if all the vintage vehicles had been in their own section. We found a few up Henley Street, a couple more at the market place and then a couple more in another road. I personally don’t want to have to look at suped up Ford Fiestas or the Mercedes posing cars you see every weekend going up Bridge Street. That’s just my view, I know others may prefer the modern or 90’s motors. I would just prefer it if the cars were sectioned into eras or types.

There was a fantastic American Taxi and some beautiful hot rods at the motor festival, which were jaw dropping. Ive added some super photos by Charlotte Doran Davis, Mark Anton Smith and a few snaps that I got too…
