A Few Of My Favourite Things
This peachy pink, vintage babies dress found me a few years ago now.
She was spotted by a family member and she knew that I would love it so she gave it to me. I have had it stored away with all of my other baby dresses that I have collected over the years.
This one is the prettiest shade of peachy pink.
This pretty white doily is a very recent find.
I'm thinking of making a cushion with it.
and this little treasure had me as soon as I saw the packaging.
It is a pair of shoelaces still new and in unused condition. I may be wrong but I think these would be from around the 1930's. The little tips aren't made of plastic like they are these days. These look like they have been made from steel and coated over with layers of paint, so they are strong and never going to fray.
The laces are more like ribbons then laces. They would have been for a pair of lady's lace up court shoes.
My new find are these little hair pins. All original and unopened.
A little sample pin is poking through the back so the buyer could see what she was buying.
I can just imagine blue rinse hair tints being all pinned up with pins such as these and ladies sitting under big white dryers in a salon.
Well that's all this week my lovely friends. It is time for rest and relaxation and this rainy weather is setting a perfect scene for staying inside with a good book. Maybe I might even get a sleep in if I am lucky (cross your fingers for me !)
I have the whole first season of 'Downton Abbey' that I have been trying to watch too.
Have a great weekend !
