Some vintage cards, these are great cause they fold out, so you can write a long letter, how old fashioned! AND a Poole marrow plate, I LOVE Poole Pottery, it has such a lush look and feel to it, I knew before I flipped this over what is was, and was so excited when I saw the little Dolphin on the base! A small haul, but satisfied.
I'm not feeling very 'Christamssy' yet - the trees up, presents are all pretty much done, just my own child to go, always the way - but I'm not too worried about the department stores selling out of everything, she wants a talking Lola doll which we saw in a small shop in Balmain. I'm feeling pleased with myself this year, no plastic 'made in China' stuff at all, it's liberating not to be on that particular band wagon. Nice to know that no humans have been harmed during the making of our Christmas!

A very decadent day for my Little P! Fairy skirt is made with a vintage tulle (from Big D's Nan)that has a really fine hot pink polka dot through out, lined with silk satin in a lavender colour, kind of matches the hedonistic atmosphere.
I must say too that I'm overwhelmed by all the good wishes from previous post - makes me all warm and fuzzy to know there's much positive energy out there!

um, excuse me while I play around with my blog template, something happened to my header and for some reason it shrunk, so then I started playing around with it, and I'm fickle and can't land on anything I really like. Does anyone know how to get rid of borders around photos?

Vintage lovelies for the tree - bought at the oppy for $4 - I really like the santa in the acorn, 'scuse the dark photo - bit of a murky day in Sydney today - although finding this lot put some bling in my step. Now if only I could find a box of 'shiny brites' - that would really make my day!
I also found this sheet, love the colours: yellow, green and grey - it has minimal fading, so will be great for little bags that I'm supposed to making as we speak!
