Gush, blush and Squealies

It wasn't the most exciting day on record.


I came home to some very exciting goodies indeed!!!

A parcel of wonderfulness from my beloved Vix !!!

All manner of delights; jewellery, nail varnish, the most incredible postcard I have EVER seen, warm undergarments, a perfectly fitting 2 piece.............and the piece de resistance.........a sublime vintage shower cap!!!

I'm in frigging ecstasy!

In addition, I received a parcel from the States!

G and I received bonuses from work!

So, I figured a treat or two was quite reasonable as well as paying off a little debt........

I went shopping for the first time on Etsy!

I got the most darling handbag and vintage hat thingy from Fancy Fine!
There are a couple of other things I got from another seller, which I shall reveal in due course.

Well, over the weekend, most likely.


Frock-opshopped and fixed a little. I've decided that I don't think I like it after all.

Belt-opshopped in Welly


Tights-white fishnets over flesh colour tights, Love to Dance and Ballantynes respectively


Hairflower-made by my beloved Vix

Cat pendant-opshopped

Thank you all so much for the lovely compliments regarding my hair!!!!

Y'know, I actually don't really feel dressed unless it's up!

That is a big reason why I don't wear it out much!

Plus, it's really fine, and can look very straggly unless it's freshly washed. Which it was!

I'm encouraged to wear it out a bit more!!

Although it usually ends up in plaits a lot over Winter, as it knots so very easily under hats and scarves!

O, and I was thrilled to see that some of you either had or have kitty jewellery similar or identical to this pendant!!! I can't believe I've never seen the like before! I'm rather enamoured with it bobbing around over my booboids!!!

We recorded Downton Abbey last night, so we can skip the ads.

I'm very much looking forward to it!!!

The Castle is one of the best films ever! Hoorah!
You look sooooo cute in the floral frock, pastel tights and hair flower. I love the ETSY bag and I can't wait to see the shower cap in action.
I hope G behaves himself with the latest safety pants.

Psycho Sue- Sew Misunderstood said...

You look cute in the dress, i like that its a bit shorter and we can see your nice legs! And yes you should wear your hair down more, it's very sexy down. xxx

Misfits Vintage said...

Oh - you don't love the frock? I think you look bloody GORGEOUS in it! But of course, as our Vix says, if you don't feel FABULOUS in it then get rid of it!

I am INSANELY JEALOUS of the wicker basket - it's DIVINE!

AND of your fantastic parcel of wonder from Vix - the shower cap is bloody marvellous and I can't wait to see whatever that treasure is with the blue flowers on!

Vintage Coconut said...

Thanks for putting a laugh in my morning with that silly face picture you added in the post. Very unexpected!

Sheesh I need to find myself one of those.. I swear Canada is all out fo them or something. hahaha

Perdita said...

Look at you with your foxy little skirt. Sexilishus (I just made that word up, so it's spelt right m'kay?).

Do I spy a Spanish postcard with a fabric skirt? I used to FREAKING LOVE THOSE as a child. Any time we (or anyone) went to spain I would stock up!

Alex said...

Ooh that BAG! I am well jealous - it's gorgeous! I do have a rather cute vintage wicker bag of my own that's due an appearance on the blog so I suppose I shouldn't be too jealous.

Dunno if I've missed it during my weekend absence but do we know where the tote is up to now?

delia hornbook said...

Just look at your gorgeous legs ;-)) I think the dress is really cute. And i love the color of those shoes. What a lovely parcel to receive and that bag is a real beauty and soooo cute ;-)) Enjoy Down town Abby, dee xx
