Bag & A Beret
The Secondhand Years
Helga von Trollop
For a bit of fun I decided to get in on the tutu/petticoat action, like the gorgeous Melanie, Curtise, Sarah Misfit & Helga. Their photos were so beautiful & inspiring, so I took on Sarah's challenge to rock some tulle, a teacup, but minus the step I'm afraid. When else will I wear tulle in public?....well in my courtyard anyway.
I'm afraid I cut my own head off....a casualty of self-timer shots.
Have I slipped into the abyss of twee?
Green petticoat - Salvos

And here are a couple more bloggers who joined in the fun.....
My local pal Desiree
And Clare from the UK
Now onto some recent finds.....
I do have a lot of green accessories, but I must admit to a shortage of blue ones. Well that's how I justify yet another accessory purchase anyway! I found a few blue pieces on my first visit to a new vintage store called Vintage Treasures. It's basically a shop set up kind of like a garage, & they sell things at garage sale prices. They sell some furniture, books, lamps, tools, nick-nacs & limited clothing & accessories.
The bracelet is missing a few stones but I don't mind, especially when it only cost me a few dollars.
Brooches were all $3 which is pretty cheap.
This is a pendant/brooch, & it's marked sterling silver too....$3
