Theodora Smiled on me

Mind you it wasnt a full on grin  like what Desiree was blessed with and I didnt find anything as wonderful least I got some  vintage pieces.Thanks for sharing her DD and thanks for visiting Theodora hope you come again very soon.(with a huge grin next time)

I was hoping this would fit me but my waist is not that small sadly.Some silly goose has cut the tag off all I can see is a R or B or something like that.I think 70s?



This is a crushed velvet size is small as and is a Gerry Shawz Brand early 90s?

White Silk? Indian style short dress

Marti Brand 70s/80s dress


Beaded cuffs


Another Indian style dress in GREEEEEN velvet.


2 new models I am thinking of decoupaging or fabricing them both,back is hollow  so want to hide that too.

One saftey pin beaded bracelet,a pandora look cuff tortoise shell look ring,funky pendant,golf club brooch and butterfly earings.




Rafia bag for the beach is long and round
Willow brand bickie barell 70s ?The funky chooks got me.






and this wonderful book on Hollywood weddings was waiting for me at an opy I nearly didnt bother with and it was only $1.50!!!
its full of Hollywood movie weddings Real life ones

Does anyone else remember Deana Durbin?I loved her movies as a kid.
and movie ones - Liz in Father of the Bride (1950) and Sophia Loren in Houseboat (1958)

 and then we have 80s movie weddings with Julia
 and one of the most well known Hollywood  weddings (this one is for you Scarlett)
 There are many more from the 1930s right thru to 1992 Love it!!
Wasnt I lucky?

Thats it for now.I may disappear for a bit as net is slowing down till the 15th.
