The gorgeous Hannah of Boo Love Vintage sent me a wee gift from the Two Squirrels garage sale held a while back in New Zealand. It's a pin cushion pair of birds, used to store hat pins. It's kind of funny because I saw one just like it in the mega vintage store in Mayfield, & I thought about buying it as I'd never seen one before. Just as well I didn't. Thank you Miss Hannah....I love it!
One might assume I would have avoided the op shops since our return home from holidays. That was my intention, but I couldn't follow through on it as the lure was far too strong. There just might be some great stuff in stock after a few weeks absence!
I bought this frock from my local Salvos. It's a shift dress in a textured cotton, & it has a cute double button detailing down the front. Now the heat has returned here in Brisbane, I am always on the look out for vintage cotton frocks that won't stick & cling to my butt in the humidity. I have never worn purple before, so it's another first for me.
