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!!

Hi Fiona! Welcome back...missed you. Rhythm Riot looked fantastic if all the pics and reports are anything to go by. A great time was had by all. I love the cocktail cabinet, just the thing for a shot of what you fancy in this cold weather. Make mine a triple!xxx

I love the travel cocktail set...exactly what you need when you have to work at weekenders. Glad your mum is doing well. Spoke to Neil a couple weeks ago and I am staying with he and Deb for a couple days after the Rave. Really hope to meet you while I am there. xx

Welcome back! I'm glad your Mum's doing okay.
Love your finds. You've just solved a mystery, I found a case like that at a jumble sale in the summer and hadn't got a clue what it was for, now I know. xxx

And the crowd goes wild! Welcome back! :) Pleased to hear that you Mum is on the mend, albeit slowly. And that you had a fab time at RR :)

Dolly Cool Clare said...

Glad RR went well! My friends who did the live art at the expo said it was great - but a bit chilly! Good news your mum is on the mend, and great finds too. The sparkly combs are very cool, and of course the travel bar!
I'm looking forward to meeting Pennychoo Sue this weekend at the fair - I saw she did some work experience with you, small world!:)

Roxie Roulette said...

I NEED the cocktail cabinet! That is just perfect!

Sarsaparilla said...

Glad you're back and starting to recover from your exhausting work, work, work at the Rhythm Riot! Also, glad to hear your modern mum is doing better, and texting away...

Fabulous cocktail cabinet - you need to keep that thing stocked well until you are fully recovered. Doctor's orders!
