Planes, Trains & What Else....Vintage

Here are my op shop finds from last week.
Even with limited time & energy I seem to manage to find things that I can't leave behind!


I was excited to find this original vintage tin toy which works. You wind it up underneath & the train & plane spin around. The box is beat up, but I LOVE it's bright colours & pictures. I'm not too sure of the era.

A Nana rug for my neck.....YES!

A gold tone "Grand Prairie" tourist bracelet from Canada which goes with everything!

An unintentional red theme.....


Red Mark Warren maxi dress. 
It reminded me of the maxi Queen Curtise
Again it looks better on then off!

  1. Red is my favourite colour, so I'm loving the cardigan and dress. You always seem to find the best jewellery. The Canadian bracelet is great.

  6. Ha, as soon as I saw that red maxi, I thought how much I liked it - you know me very well! Lovely jewellery, and that tin plane toy is a beauty - 1950-early 60s, maybe? xxx
