Things have been a bit quiet on the blog front this week because I turned another year older on Monday. I had a lovely time out during the day with my bestie Miss J at the WAC for some lunch & a browse at the treasures for sale. Then my parents came over for tea & we had a quiet night in. I thought I'd better show you just some of the lovely gifts I received. I know some people aren't into the "look what I got" posts, so I'll try to be selective! Thank you to my girlfriends & family who know my tastes pretty well!
My Mum gave me this super colourful handmade vintage bag found at a Nambour op shop.
Isn't it a beauty!!??
Along with a bird vase & sugar bowl
All op shopped of course!
And some funny little bird figurines in their original plastic domes.
Miss J gifted me this beautiful old domino set with dove-tailed details.
Plus a super kitsch embossed deer plate from West Germany. She has a matching one, both from a local garage sale.
My dear friend Miss G made me this noteboard with fabric & ribbon. I've pinned some brooches on it for now. Plus my first Johnson saucer, & a teeny tiny vintage locket & earing set.
From Mum....a gorgeous old amber brooch from a Sunshine Coast op shop
And a pretty hand knitted bed jacket
A funky apron top from Miss J, plus a cardboard stag head from Typo.
I caught up with my lovely friend Miss C yesterday, & her gorgeous gifts included these beauties. An old Avon deer perfume bottle, & a blingy orange bangle.
If you follow my Facebook page, you'd know that my little girl shoes arrived from Clarks this week. They are literally for girls but I do have teeny feet. I was debating over the red or yellow ones for summer, but seeing as my very first pair of shoes were patent red it wasn't that hard to decide.
