Art Nouveau Coat from 1800s

Found a photo reference to this absolutely fantastic Art Nouveau coat from the 1800s. I would not be at all suprised if this style was copied for the high street or runways of today. In fact - call out to dressmakers....anyone fancy making it for me?

Art Nouveau Iris Vase from Past Times

Past Times is celebrating it's 25th year in business and is having a massive sale as a result. They have always had a wide selection of art nouveau reproductions and although some are more tasteful than others I thought it quite fitting to give them a mention. We bought this vase for a friend's birthday last year.

Alphonse Mucha Colouring Book

Took a visit to a nearby museum on Friday and found this amazing colouring book in the gift shop. Perhaps more for an adult or older child - it features 22 well known Mucha images to colour. They were selling for £6.99 but I have seen them on the web at more affordable prices. Perfect for those closet colouring in fans, I personally know several, myself included!
