I went to town today hoping that the box of preserving vacola bottles (for a craft idea)were still waiting for me (they werent) and found these few things and a new friend.
The new friend came about by her saying she had come into ask about this chair and got sidetrackd in the meantime I bought the chair from outside to ask how much ($2 BTW) and I said I saw something she had I would have liked too lol.Anyway she said she had just moved here and they were on the look out for vintage and I said me too and I collect vintage clothing.She said she has a friend in Brissie with a couple of rooms full (drool me) I said I have a blog she said do you?I said Do you?She said No but I love reading them so she hopefully will drop in and say hi.Hi Tania if you are,She said she is a crafter I said me too she said she is crocheting at the moment I said I am knitting.She said she is a glass artist (I cant wait to see) I said you should have a blog too.(Hope she does)She said this is my daughter Lily-Rose I said thats my grandaughters name funny hey? Sooooo I am super happy I have a new friend that lives in town that crafts and loves vintage just like me.And this was just after I emailed Catherine saying I wished I had a friend who lived closer who loved vintage too.See wishes can come true.Now how about that million dollar win/inheritance/find dear wish makerer?
It has gorgeous flared sleeves.
I think its from late 70s.
and another freaking bag!! I put it down I picked it up I opened it I shut it.I put it down again I then said no woman! take it or you will wish you had so I did,Its all leather and has this lovely white shiny plastic clasp.
But I did finish reading a book called
"The Secret Life of Dresses".by Erin Mckean was an easy read and I do love books about vintage dress shops.
My favourite one is still "A Vintage Affair" by Isabel Wolff and the other one I liked was "Shall we Dance".If you read them let me know what you thought.
I also watched a movie (mini sereies) I got from the library on DVD its a period drama called Daniel Deronda wasnt too bad but is a long show to watch and the costumes were Oh wow.
I am right into period films again at the moment thanks to Downton Abbey.
Well thats all folks.
