Sorry I've not been around lately, I've been busy at work and have had a house guest so finding time to write for here has been impossible.
Anyway, I had a lovely day of thrifting on Saturday and just wanted to share my glorious finds with you. Almost all in a shade of pink.
My first purchase was this wonderful hat, dark red with a pinky orange band. I bought this from Past Caring in Islington and it came with two black hat pins which area little rusty but easily cleaned. All for £8!
Whilst there I also picked up a darling rose pink slip and a fabulous 50's crochet pattern for DK wool. I'm always thrilled when I find vintage patterns in anything above 4 ply.
I then wandered up the road and found a great stall selling vintage haberdashery oddments and picked up two belt buckles and some buttons which are an incredibly close match for one of the buckles.
The green buckle is cracked but I plan to Make Do and Mend it with a dab of superglue. It was just too beautiful to pass by with that lively green on cream and deco style.
So ladies - I need some idea for what to make for these items. I'm thinking some late 40's dresses. Any pattern suggestions would be very welcome. I'd love to use those big pink buttons and belt together.
Oh, and I was naughty and bought a watch. Modern but vintage style - rose gold. I hope I love it as much in real life as I do in the picture.
