A fresh start in September!

I know it's sounds crazy because I'm 43 and it has been a very long time since I was at school, I also don't have children so it's not even that which brings about a new beginning feeling in September, but I always feel September is time for a fresh start. I would say I'm far more likely to make resolutions in September than in January, although I do get bowled along by other peoples January resolutions!

September to me always feels like a breathe of fresh air, Summer is great, but I always feel like I have to 'make the most of it' especially in the UK, cos sometimes we don't even get a Summer to speak of, for us in the South of England it's been pretty good this year, well apart from August, but we all know what happened to me the other weekend, so I won't go on .....

Also had a fantastic find at a charity shop the other day, 6 50's glasses, so cheap you would pass out, here they are!



There are 2 orange - not so keen on orange, 2 yellow, one green & one red which I love! One of the orange is faded & the gold rim is worn but hey it's still a set, and no don't have heart attack the glass holder didn't come with it, we had that anyway!

Not only is it a fresh start for me, but also for Notorious Kitsch, yes we actually have already started planning for the Christmas season, I know it seems early but we have to start thinking about it before you guys do!

Anyway we went to a huge trade fair yesterday and found some lovely new suppliers which we're excited about at!

Here's a sneak peek of a couple of things :o)

A fab repro brooch



And another



Cute huh? We're very excited to be stocking some jewellery items now! But it will be a few weeks before you can get them from us.

Other exciting stuff to come too!

Fall is my favorite time of year! Summer makes me sluggish, the heat really saps my energy, but I come alive in the cool weather.

Love the glasses!!

I completely agree, I always see September as a new start I think it does hark back to my school days, summer is over and all that. September is when I usually start new projects as well and autumn is my favourite season so much more inspiring than the deaden heat of summer!. Glad to hear your back on track and fab finds. x

Ohh goody - the broaches look good enough to eat!
I have some of those glasses, all mismatched though, which means I love them more cos I don't need to be precious about them

Wow, you need to tell us where these charity shops are and stop hoarding all the goodies to yourself!! Love the little chap with the ukelele, will have my eye on the shop for all your new goodies!xxx

September is my favorite month. I love the air, changing of leaves... EVERYTHING!
Those glasses were a great find and I love that little green and black brooch.

Couldn't agree more - my favorite hymn at primary school was always "Autumn Days"!
You have the full set of glasses that I have one of!! Love the glass holder too and the brooches are fab :)

ah Jenni, I have trawled my local town so much and never found a thing, it was only when I ventured a little further I found a couple of gems whose location I will keep close to my heart ;o)

oooh how did the show go DCC? Good I hope!

Retro Chick said...

September always makes me feel like that too! It's weird isn't it!

Sorry you had such a bad time at Twinwood, it was still nice to meet you though ;)

Those glasses are amazing! I love it when things like that pop up in Charity Shops. If I ever have a weekend off again and any money I'm surely due a massive charity shopping day!

Good for you, darling. Fall rocks. I know, how American of me. LOL, what can I say? Colloquialisms rock too!

As for your 50's glasses -- swoon-material woman! Honest to Pete, FAN-TAS-TIC find! I love them!

And I can't wait to shop you if and when I ever get a dollar to my damn name. I loveeeeeeeee that cowboy brooch. I hateeeeee being poor. Will see if I can reconcile the two. (ugh)

Hugs and love from Chicago!

Seems we all feel the same, fab, here's to new beginnings!

Eartha Kitsch said...

I always feel the same way about Fall. I think with me it's because it's finally not a hundred degrees and I can think and move around without passing out. :)

I LOVE those glasses!

Darlene said...

Sweetest STM... I would love to buy a cowboy pin from you. May you give me a head's up when I can get one from your web-site? I just looked and didn't see them there...

It would be my honor to buy from thee.

Darlene, email me at fiona@notoriouskitsch.co.uk & I'll explain more!
