Mr P & I are off on our annual summer holiday to the Sunshine Coast. I have picked up a little bit over the past few days (YAY!) & hopefully our time away will do me the world of good. I'm glad to finally be off the heart monitors too (no results back yet). I had the chance to pop into my fav little op shop (after being de-wired) which reopened today...Oh how I've missed the op shops in the past few weeks. I purchased a mere 4 vintage frocks....so few compared to my last haul of 18! (I didn't keep them all!) I will show & tell at a later date. I usually don't have computer access while we're away. I know I will really miss reading all of your lovely blogs. But be assured I will be back....commenting & blogging & searching for undiscovered vintage treasures! Thanks so much for all of your lovely responses on past posts & for your care over the past few weeks....it means a lot to me! Xx
I must admit to making an Ebay purchase during my time home bound, but it was only 99cents which hardly counts does it? It's a green trimmed maxi dress by John J Hilton....It's a Hilton Honey! I can just picture lounging around in this at Noooosa Darling!
I just had to share a pic of the custom bunting that I ordered from the lovely Caroline over at Things I Do....she is so clever & creative. She made double sided bunting with a birdy theme, and she added in this cute birdy brooch. Thank you so much! Xx
The bunting is hanging in our bedroom.
I wanted to thank those dear friends of mine who have phoned or sent messages, & have sent me little parcels of love during the past few yucko weeks. I am so blessed to have some extra special friends in my life, some of whom have suffered with the same illness as me, for as long as I have, & they always seem to know when I need a bit of extra encouragement. So I want to say a big thank you to Miss C, Miss G & Miss S. You girls are some of the bravest I know, & your love & support over the past few weeks has been such a blessing to me.
My dear Miss G from Victoria sent me this parcel of goodies...the retro style top was from a shop in St Kilda. Miss G knows how much I love St Kilda, & the combination of green & pink. She also included a handmade notebook & handmade chocolates, with a birdy wall canvas. Thank you dear Miss G.
My dear Miss C gave me this anodised teapot that belonged to her Grandmother a while back. It is in the prettiest blue, & it is in wonderful condition. Miss C knows I will forever treasure this one. Love you Miss C.
Miss S sent me a sweet little birdy card & a lovely magnet bookmark....which she said reminded her of VintageBirdGirl. Miss S is a very talented artist who designs cards & writes her own blog too called ByShi.
