First up is this rather marvellous dress which I adore:
|Vintage 1950s Dress, £45 from Raiders Vintage|
|Close up of belt (yes that is a hair pin holding the belt up)|
I love the colours on this dress and the amazing pattern. Also I do love a matching belt and I think the buttons are real mother of pearl (they're cold to the touch)! There's no label but I'm positive it's not homemade because of the belt. Love, love, love it! (Because I haven't said 'Love' enough yet *rolls eyes*)
We went to a few Shops de Charité (as A likes to call them) over on the Wirral, but not lots as we were mainly doing Other Things (cryptic). I didn't get a lot but I did get this fab book on making toys for children:
|80 Toys to Make for Children - £1, Oxfam (apologies for wonky photograph)|
I'm a sucker for vintage craft books and especially ones about soft toys. I couldn't resist the lamb on the front cover. I think I'll make him first.
|How fab is this Noah's Ark set?|
|Better picture of the lamb|
I also got a couple of fab vintage throws. They're both the same pattern and have fringed edges:
|Just a detail of the throw|
I also got a new phone and a load of new ballet pumps as my old ones are knackered.
I'd better take myself off to bed, I'm falling asleep.
