…. A gorgeous Singer sewing machine – the 306k
A year ago today at 2pm I was walking down the aisle to meet my future husband. I can’t believe a year has passed already! I have so many happy memories of the day that I really will cherish forever, it is certainly true what they say about it being the happiest day of your life! Read the rest of this entry
A while ago at a vintage fair in York I bought this dress
It has been sat in my wardrobe since then, occasionally being brought out a longingly looked at. I have not yet been able to wear it as I am unable to fit into it. Now you may wonder why I bought it if it didn’t fit, however I really couldn’t leave it there, it is made from a gorgeous Liberty fabric and it is so me! The only part that doesn’t fit is around my chest at the back where the zip wont do up. The rest fits perfectly and looks lovely! Read the rest of this entry
You may remember I received received a vintage tea cup candle from Emma for one of my advent parcels. It has long since burned to the bottom and a few weeks ago I bought a candle making kit from Twee T’s, determined to make my own! Armed with the kit and a few other cups and saucers, I raided the kitchen cupboards for things to use to make more candles! Read the rest of this entry
With pennies in my purse, Nic and I set off today for the Vintage fair in Manchester. I was so excited when we arrived and even more thrilled to find that there was 2 floors of lovely vintage goodies. We set to rummaging through the rails and soon came across some lovely bargains. Nic found a lovely little dress for only £5 and I bought this fab green dress for £14
We had a pot of tea and some scrummy cake before venturing upstairs, finding a sea of rails and rails of gorgeous clothes.
I really had to stop myself from spending a fortune, I had only taken £40 and most stalls only took cash so it definitely meant a lot of discipline on my part!
I found a lovely velvety skirt for only £8, not sure if it would fit I bought it anyway and was delighted to find we got a free cupcake with my purchase!
I found a great stall called Jumpagain, selling loads of fab jumpers and cardigans
I saw this lovely cardigan and really couldn’t leave it there for £10! I might maybe change the buttons to some that are a little less shiny!
Lastly I bought these earings and some other bits and pieces, hoping to turn them into some crafty things to either sell or maybe even for my swaps!
We both had a fab day and can’t wait for the next one on the 20th November at Manchester Town Hall.
