Some days are just GOOD days!

Actually it's been a good couple of days but I digress.

This morning the postman rang the door bell and a package arrived. I knew a package was going to arrive as the very lovely Vix asked for my address as she had a little something for me. I love Vix's blog and I'm over there everyday, Vix is one of those people that I might not have met if it wasn't for blogland, I'm a 50's gal, she's more a 70's gal, we don't live anywhere near each other, she goes to Glastonbury I go to the Rhythm Riot or VLV, it would appear we have very little in common but that's the wonder of blogland, you find gems of people who you may never have met otherwise, well Vix is one of them and if you don't follow her blog what in heck are you waiting for? http://vintagevixon.blogspot.com/ I will publicly declare here and now I love Vix!

Anyway I digress again! So I opened my package and look what Vix got me, not one but a pair of cats to replace my sadly broken one! I immediately put them where my demised cat had stood and they look happy as larry! - who the heck was larry?



I did a crappy job of taking pics, too much sun behind the curtain but I wanted to show them in situ!


They have the cutest faces!!


So there was the good start to my day.

Also - and this is rather exciting - you know I said I needed to do some part time work to make ends meet, well I have me one small part time job, just need to build from there now. Guess who with? oh yes people, Miss L Fire shoes!! You must have noticed I've mentioned them a bit lately and I didn't want to say until I knew for definate, hate jinxing stuff, yes I am a bit superstitious! I can't think of anything more exciting than working for a fabulous shoe company part of the week, it's kinda like a dream come true, have to say though they are not only fab shoes but fab people!!

Then yesterday I cheered myself up no end by packing away all the really thick winter woolies and digging out all my spring/summer clothes! So lovely to see all the colours on the bed just waiting to be put in the wardrobe!



My wardrobe is now a feast of colour and tropical prints!



One blouse I totally forgot I had is this beauty, which I made myself from vintage fabric. I made it about 3 years ago and am yet to wear it, why I hear you cry! Well when I made it I was much slimmer and I got the measurements wrong and made it too big so it was packed away, then I gained weight :o( Now it's too small, but not a lot too small, I can't wait til I'm back in it. I reckon by the time it's warm enough to wear something with no sleeves - lets face it we're talking June! - I'll be back in it!


And just in case some of you out there think it's only women that have a vintage clothes problem, this is my husbands rail, please bear in mind most of his winter wear is packed away and not on this rail! Yes that is a 6ft rail, all to himself!


So I am buoyed by beautiful presents from beautiful people, a great part time job with a great company and my lovely colourful clothes back in the wardrobe!

I guess you could say I'm a pretty happy bunny!

What a wonderful gift!

I started rotating my wardrobe for the seasons a couple weeks ago. I love being able to bring out and wear my cotton sun dresses. Thank goodness spring is finally here!

See you soon.
