Voluteers wanted on this sad uneventful What I wore this week Wednesday

Would you like to volunteer to  help me sort out my humungous mess? Its a vintage goodness mess but a mess nontheless.Its ok if you cant make it I will get it done soon eventually.Just felt a tad worn out today to get motivated.

Before I start to show some of my yummy things I shall share a few pics of what I wore this week which wont be much as I didnt take photos everyday.(BTW my trusty camera went missing at mums during the sort out maybe the Salvos got it and sent the box to the dump or it may be in one of mums many boxes so who knows when they will be unpacked.)Anyway am using other cameras which arent as good.

What I wore today..

A yellow (hear that my Misfit friend ?)  yes  yellow vintage lace top that the captain even commented on as he liked it.(mess in background is all Mine)
 Not quite vintage al lace 90s orientique brand dress that was mums.The 2 uglies next to me were taken to my sisters for her garden under much duress by me lol
 What I wore on family pic day at my sisters.
Now asking for a favour for my sister.She is trying to get her Jewellery business "A Little Bit of Bling" of the ground.If you are at Facebook can you hit  the Like button  HERE and also check out her website HERE.If anyone has a good place to make banners please let me/her know.

Wow, looks quite a sort out is needed, but you do have some great stuff. I love the eiderdown best, I want a new (old) one - the kids have destroyed mine.

I'd love to come and help but I have my own giant piles to sort first. I love the style of your Gran's bag. xx

Love the eiderdown. I would love to volunteer though I doubt I could justify the air fare.

Great idea though.

I've just caught up with your blog Nelly. What a super busy month you've had! Love that yellow top on you too. xx

I would LOVE to help you sort all that stuff out - as long as you return the favour, Nelly!
Great things, love the cases and the typewriter (I was carressing one in a charity shop the other day with my youngest, who asked what it was. How old did I feel?)
Yellow top - yay! I've bought a yellow summer frock, based on Sarah's insistence that we can all wear it! xxxxxxx

Your trip has worn me out Nelly! Honestly got exhausted reading each entry. You are something else & I think you should take a bit of time to relax before you start tackling that project. You look beautiful in your mum's dress. What a great lot of treasures you've brought home. I LOVE the chandelier! Love it all!

Take care of you Nell!

Bloody hell,my eyes are bedazzled by so much wonderful goodness!
I'm really into that typewriter case,it's rather fabulous!
The trouble with sorting through so much fun stuff is the getting sidetracked into admiring things,or getting excited over things you've forgotten about....and then realising you've got mothing achieved! Hahaha!

Please may I? said...

Gosh you have been busy!
