How does a person who has to go into town (appointment again) Resist the urge to go opshopping? I have to drive right by 2 of them what chance have I got to resist lol .Seriously I am addicted ( I know this and my family know this) but I am glad I went even tho I limited myself to just 2 of them and the haul wasnt big ....
But this dress caught my eye its home made and it looks like its made from bedspread or curtain fabric at 1st I thought it was a kids dress maybe 80s but taking a closer look it is a ladies size maybe a 10 and is so neatly sewn but with a metal zipper.I think its old or old fabric has been used as the underlining is old taffeta fabric and the dress has that old packed away smell so maybe just maybe it is from the 50s?If it is 50s it sure has been well stored.
I forgot this book from yesteday will be a great read.,Also another Little teapot whats with my teapot fixation lately?The fabrics are to make a bakers apron and hat for Miss 4 disco.
Enid Gilchrest pattern books from the same shop as the dress and there are 10 in all and were 10 in all.Less than 50cents each I think ranging from the 50s to 70s and were
Now to serious business (Me serious?)
I really need my blogging buddies to help me choose a business name.I am now all set to set up shop using Weebly and I had decided to go with the name "Wish Upon a Vintage Star" but then while driving into town and coz my brain never switches of I thought maybe "Catch a Vintage Star" would be better I have always loved the song Catch a Falling Star when I was a kid and have sung it to my kids and grandkids (tho badly as I have no voice lol) My mum used to sing it to me and my sis as well when we were really little and I can see the logo of a vintage dressed lady sitting on a half moon with her fishing line attached to a star.Also the 2nd choice is shorter for domain name.So please let me know what you all think and ask friends opinions so I can get this shop started.I have so much I must move on (so I can buy more ha ha)
We have the garage sale trail this weekend really will try hard to be strong and not go but the urge will be there.
Happy weekend hunting and crafting cant wait to see what you find and make.
PS Just called Lovely Laura looks like we may be trailing after all so stay tuned.
