Has is really been that long?

Since I talked to you lovely people!!

So sorry, busy time of year for me but I am now officially on my holidays, well there may not be many advantages to being self-employed but one of them is that you decide when you finish for Christmas, which to be fair is decided on last posting day really!

It's unlikely I'll post again before Christmas as I'm driving up North to see my mum. Well I'm hoping to, if you're in the UK you know the problems, if you're not, we've been having some quite incredibly extreme weather for the UK this December and I know lots of other countries have worse but it's not usual for us and we really don't cope well with it, sadly.

Please keep your fingers crossed for my journey which I'm going to try for tomorrow.

I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year. It's been a joy to get to know you all this year and I hope we get to know each other even better next year!

And to end the year I'll have one of whatever he's having!!

I do love shoes!!

Don't we all? I have no idea where the obsession with shoes come from with women but I don't know many who don't love shoes - although I do know a few.

Anyway my loves of shoes knows no bounds, I have plenty of shoes and I have no money to spend on shoes yet when I see new arrivals from Rocket Originals, I spend my day trying to work out how to make some money to buy these beauties!!

Rocket Originals have not just one but two new arrivals, it's almost too much to bear!!

I was lucky enough to see pictures of both of these when they were getting samples made and I couldn't contain my excitement, but now they are here I can finally show you them. Get a hanky because you will drool!

First up a new sandal called Lana, so sexy and classy, I WANT!

Beautiful styling, tied ankle strap, cute bow on the front, a colour that will go with nearly everything, what more could a gal want?

Next up is Mitzi, I really really really love these.


It's hard to find nice repro every day comfy shoes and these will be my go to shoes for being comfortable and stylish!

So there you have it more lovely things to spend your money on, I know where my money will be going!!

Just like buses.....

No blog posts for weeks then 2 come long at once!!

Actually I've wanted to do this since I found out about this new website at the Rhythm Riot.

I was talking to a lovely lady called Mary, who I've known for a long time but don't know her very well, something quite common on our scene, you get to know lots of people are you've all been around for years but you rarely have intimate conversations so you get to know people over many years!

Anyway Mary has an amazing knowledge about vintage jewellery, she really knows her stuff, in fact she told a friend - who I won't name unless she wants to name herself - that a brooch she was wearing was actually rare and worth about £400!! My friend was so shocked, mind you it's a lovely lovely brooch.

So let me get to the point, Mary has launched Vintage Inspirations a fabulous website selling vintage jewellery, she has lots on there and I know has more stock to list.  She's a lovely lady and as I said very knowledgeable so you know you are getting quality.

Here are a few of the most fabulous pieces on there at the moment!

Nice huh? Give them a visit, I'm sure you'll find something that you love, oh and did I say her prices are really reasonable too!

I'm Back!

Well I've been back a while but only feel in the land of living again this week. Sorry for extended time away. Mum got through her op ok but she's taking a while to recover so she's currently in rehab doing physio every day til she's strong enough to go home. I haven't seen her recently as the current weather conditions where she lives are atrocious so I probably wouldn't make it there but we text each other several times a day, thank goodness for a modern thinking mother of 74!!

The Rhythm Riot was fabulous as always but no photos as predicted, I worked worked worked, slept then worked. If you don't believe me ask Helen from Pin-Up Parade she witnessed me work from dawn til dusk no exaggeration!

So have I got any other news, well not really I've been rather busy but I have had a few good vintage finds even as busy as I am, and of course as always all super cheap!!

First up is the prettiest, well sparkly anyway!!

Yes those 5 sparkling lucite folding combs, aren't they lovely? Just the right size and style for corresponding lucite bags! Now I just need to get a green, red & orange lucite bag he he!

Next up a nice vintage compact.

With original powder puff that needs a bit of a wash!

And last but certainly not least, when I saw this I knew it was for us! I love picnic sets but we don't picnic really. It looks like a picnic set

Nice eh? But what is it really?

It's a portable cocktail cabinet, oh yes people, room for bottles, mixers and glasses!!

For £5, yes you heard £5, contents not included of course!!

So there you have it I'm back, I'll blog more now, hope you are all well and will see you all soon!!
