Rediscovering what you didn't know you had.....

Or at least didn't remember you had!

As I said a couple of posts ago I'll be lagging behind on blogging in July/August as I'm desperately trying to catch up on all the jobs in the house that I have let fall by the wayside in the last 2 years whilst I've been working hard on building Notorious Kitsch.

Anyway I am having the sort out of all sort outs, I do this often but I finally see a light at the end of the tunnel! I've been buying vintage clothes, music and homewares for over 20 years and when you're been collecting that long - I'm sure my older readers will agree - things CAN get out of hand! Don't get me wrong I've bought loads and sold loads in that time but there are always things you forget about or you don't want to part with or whatever.

I thought I'd do this post on 3 things I forgot I even had but uncovered when I tackled a particular part of the house!

First up is this cute vargas girl poster, it has a fold in it so I assume it came from a mag, we always had it up in our bathroom, but haven't put it up since we've lived in this house, she doesn't have a frame so will need to get one and it will go back in the bathroom!




How cute is she? Ah to look like that and have a sarong and bikini top like that, although now we are veering dangerously into fantasy territory!

Next up is an odd little thing but I kinda like it, however it is one of those things that you think why do I have it!!



Cute top so what is it?



It's a brush and inside.....


It's a manicure set! Clever huh?!

And last but certainly not least, this very very cute shelf lining paper that I still haven't found a home for and has been stored away forever!



I have some mexican themed fabric for curtains in the kitchen too, it will look very cute in there eventually!

In Other News!

My laptop is kapput, it needs to go away for 10 days, YES 10 days! Running an online shop is not easy without a computer, fortunately my husband has one but it's pretty crappy so not sure how much non-essential stuff I can do on it before it gives up the ghost, so there may be radio silence from me on the blog for 10 days aaargh, just warning you!

AND

I notice I am not too far away from having 100 lovely people following the blog, how fabulous, I'm so chuffed, as soon as I reach 100 I'll be hosting a giveaway, lord only knows what but I'll conjure up something fabulous you can be sure!

Ok people I'm backing up my system as I write this so need to get all essential stuff done before I say bye bye to my laptop for 10 days, noooooo.......

I recently cleaned and organized my closet and found several cute things buried at the bottom that I had forgotten I had. It's like getting a present! I moved all my sleeved and cocktail dresses to my daughter's closet (my closet is a bit cramped) and I hope to have that feeling again, come fall, when it's time to wear some of those sleeved dresses again.

That shelf lining paper is amazing! Love it!

^^^Vintage Christines giveaway is the best I have ever seen!!

YES! Have collected, bought and sold vintage for decades. It's wonderful to "rediscover" treasures we forget we have! The brush is adorable!

Yeah, I am about to embark on my Mom's storage space. I swear, it's like Fibber McGee's closet. God knows what I'll find! I'm entering by the way (Christine's)
