Miss Claire said...

Gorgeous everything! I remember my nana had what you call a brunch coat...she was so stylish, but back when I could have inherited all of her clothes, I wasn't into vintage at all! Such a shame...

Yes you are teasing me! I can't wait to be inspired by golden hands!! :)

Xoxo Claire

Loving your indian fabric!

Liz said...

Great finds - love the fabric. Can't imagine what a knitted swimsuit would look like if you actually went swimming in it!!!! Eek!

Nice finds!! I love the red "brunch coat"... I have a couple of hostess gowns (the US name, I think) and they're so fun to wear around the house.

I LOVE Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson... I actually bought that whole album a couple of years ago around when it first came out. I could watch that video over and over, it's so awesome. Their spooky-country vibe is really similar to Blanche!

Scarlett Fontaine said...

Great finds as always, loving the linen and the fabric! Scarlett x

Vintage Vixen said...

I remember those quilted housecoats from when I was a kid, everyone's mums owned one. That jug is a very quirky shape and I'd love a knitted swimsuit, wildly impractical but such fun. xxx

Helga! said...

Ha,flannel shirts!That's ok,I didn't have to look away!!!

Lyndel said...

Penny Dreadful said...

C.K.Garner said...

I wonder what year that jug hales from. Ahaha! The robe was a staple wardrobe item for years. Geez, my age is showing! :D

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Look at those beautiful 'lil darlings on the bike:)). Tell B-A she is more than welcome to come and have a longer play next time she's in Brisneyland. I have never seen a flatware jug before and it's the most gorgeous jug I've seen in so long!! I love men's 70s jackets too - can't believe it was only 50 cents and omg I need a knitted swimsuit next summer! xoxo
