New haul Old Haul.

I have been terribly slack I know.Have not been feeling great since my kidney stones but am now seeing a Dr (not something I ever usually do ) So hope I will get an answer soon.
Anyway I havent been well enought to even post much so today I will share my yesterday finds (tho been disappointing seeing as I havnt even been going opping much and thought they would have haeps of treasure.)
Makes me want to jump on a jet plane and go to UK for a flea market fix with VintageVixen who finds the best things near every day.
Yesterday 1st shop saw Tulle ( I love anything with tulle) This was in the dress ups section I beleive its an 80s wedding dress.Still has original tag with $100 then reduced to $50 I got it for $12.95 (click pic to make it bigger)
I think its lovely and has a older Vintage look to it.(One day I hope to find a real 50s prom dress with lots of tulle and lace)

Some of you may have seen my other wedding dress I got a few weeks back was in same shop same price but is definatley 50s/60s Saw the Tulle 1st and fell in love.Here it is again,

Another sewing basket and old  fabric

Plus some comics. I used to read Archie all the time and loved woody when I was a kid too I got another 2 notebooks magazines.(One I already have so if anyone wants to add any to their collection let me know what numbers you are after I may be able to find them for you)Oh and for ones who dont know.Notebook was a wonderful home magazine with great craft and decorating ideas and a great read that stopped being published late last year)

Some more dice for my dice collection (yes I am weird lol)

Lovely Japanese lady and paper

A great wodden shelf and some vintage ornaments The squirrels are S and P shakers.

Then the rest are from a week or more back

I found these cute bangles Love the snake arm band $2 each.
Some more hankies ( I think I will stick to ones with full pics like these.)
This lovely little cardi (dont think its vintage just has that look made in India Brand is Forever New,
And this gorgeous lace 60s mini dress with large round sequins along top.Havnt tried it on been way to sick to bother but will fit me.AU size 12.Brand Silver Star of Sydney,
 Will go great with my new vintag ebag (from Lovely Laura as part of my anniversary gift)

More patterns for a later date when my sewing bug comes back.Havent been crafting anything lately and am feeling it,lol

This lovely hand drawn pic that someone mustnt have loved enough so I will love her instead,
oops nearly forgot this LONNNGGGG extra maxi red 70s dress with great sleeves (maybe belonged to a really tall person?)Shop made - Quittino Brand

Well thats all folks am going to wallow in self pity and pain for a bit xx.Hope you enjoyed and Happy Hunting.

Ooh Nelly, I am so sorry to hear you have been unwell. I understand that kidney stones are one of the worst pains - I hope you get them sorted sort, you poor love.

I ADORE: the squirrel salt and pepper shakers, the fabric on the sewing basket, the hankies and the black beaded bag. Such wonderful treasures!

So sorry to hear you haven't been well i hope you start to feel better soon, It totally throws me coming onto your blog with you having the same blog layout etc as me. Love your wedding dresses what will you do with them? Lovely hankies to. Take care, dee x

Vintage Vixen said...

Sorry you've been unwell, I know kidney stones are very painful, lots of love coming your way.
If you do want to hope over and stay please can you bring the red maxi dress and the 1960's mini dress with you and the snake bracelet and that bag so that I can steal them off you? xxx

Kitty said...

Aw Nelly, I wondered why we hadn't heard from you much, thats really bad news. My mother has had a number of kidney stones and I understand it is one of the most painful things its possible to have. FYI, Silver Star is late 70s and I wonder if that black dress was a maxi thats been cut off?? Apparently Silver Star was an upmarket label in its day, I guess like MrK. is now, I've seen other vintage dealers swoon over it, great score :)

The Widow Next said...

Ah, no...I hope you will be right as spring rain very soon...I''m glad you are seeing the Doc.

Onto the things that keep you going1 And don't we admire you so for posting as you find treasure?! The hankies are my favorite part, the full pics so charming! I love tulle for costuming. Both of those wedding dresses look like they could be Steampunked out with little trouble.

Some neat tights and boots or flats along with your vintage 60's dress and bag, and you're ready for the groovie protest!

I have the highest regard for your work on these pages...don't worry, if you miss a wekk or two we promise to ogle as soon as you put them up!

Get well, Friend Nellie.

Janelle aka Nelly said...

@delia hornbook I had a really nice theme before I tried to make my pics bigger and stuffed it all up.Was easier to go with theirs and its Green so will do for now till I am up to playing with it again.

Lyndel said...

vintage mum said...

Hello Nelly
I hope you get better really soon.

I love all your finds! The sewing basket & fabric is so cute. In the last few weeks I have become addicted to sewing little things here and there. I have a sewing basket that resembles yours but it is white and yellow and round. =)

Janelle aka Nelly said...

@vintage mumI could only cut up wedding dresses if they were damaged somewhere these are in great condition.I think maybe a vintage dress hire business maybe in the future?

Janelle aka Nelly said...

@Lyndel Today I decided that I could either stay home and be in pain (but not as bad as yesterday thankfully)
Or go and do what I love second choice won will post finds soon

Janelle aka Nelly said...

@Vintage Coconut Thanks VC I am better today than yesterday even went opping in between the pain.Stay tuned.
