But I had been eyeing this outfit off for a couple of weeks minus the hol's and knew Id buy it if it was still there and it was.Shame I dont look as smart as the outfit does but it is the closest Ill ever come to wearing this garb for real.And Kitty I forgot to take the date thingy of my camera, its done now but I aint taking all these pics again!!lol But look my forever blonde/senior moments had a break and I worked out how to make pics big, yes I am slow but once I get it, I get it, even if it takes ages to click ,ha.
|Professor Nelly majored in opshopping I even look surprised|
the 2 other yellow ones are form the 70s as well as is the poetry for kids.
Am hoping th eMake your own pattern book will help me out.
Teatowel is inspired by Kylie at Lucy Violet who always has a tea towel at end of her post you must go see she gets great treasures. I also got the 2 retro tablecloths and am so loving the red one it was $2.50 and has never been used still has original sticker The pretty green one is round.
Pretty vintage dress A gown of beauty fashioned by Jeanne De Camp melbourne also has is on the tag Doesnt fit me or I would have tortured you with me dressed up some more lol
cane bed I bought a couple weeks back what you think? Or stick to doing velvet patchwork but remember this is on back porch and so maybe just add velvelt cushions?
VV did on hers and she always looks so good and I love her outfits and I copy people I am inspired by, but it smelt and I dont know if you can get rid of smell from leather.?
The 2 following pics are teasers for a new reader JennyBoo who spied my vintage in my overall pics
|Mostly not selling|
and before my opshop fix I had ....
been trying to change my blog layout but apparently my template wont allow it so may have to muck around and go back to basic (boring)
Also I have been reading everyones blogs but only can comment on a rare occassion due to the ridiculous slow speed I am getting on the net at the mo.
I am also trying to work out how I can invent a few more hours in the day ha ,while I knit even more of those fingerless gloves for the girls school friends but have spat the dummy and said said no more!!!(mean granny) Because ....
I want to start knitting this from opshoped pattern and wool. I thought the $15 price tag for this bag of yarn was expensive till I went to spotlight and saw what one ball sells for yikes so went back and bought this lot to make that cute outfit.
In this pic you can see more vintage lace.
Close up of lace
