This is my gorgeous, adorable, grand daughter ,she has just turned one and is the light of my life ,a cliche maybe but so true!! . She was toddling around the furniture picking up 'things " ( read breakable!) ,so I led her towards my sewing box ,a treasure I picked up a while ago, (do you like how I say' my sewing box' -I don't sew!) anyway here she is .
She really looks the part doesn't she!! unlike her Grand mother , I don't think the lace has seen the light of day since I put it in there! I would love to be able to turn bits of lace and things into something, I am looking at borrowing a sewing machine and having a go at cushions ,so here's hoping!! . My daughter (Maias mum) has the Baking gene, (which I don;t have) ! I'm not a baker ,but A does lovely baking all from scratch too! a lot of it egg and dairy free as well ,she amazes me,but I can't brag that it comes from me!!
I forgot to show these cute little nursery rhyme dishes that I also found yesterday , there were only two of them ,but they look like they are part of a series they say on the back 'Midwinter Stylecraft, Staffordshire . I will probably put them in Maias' room when she moves into her own room at home.
And ....it's alright I'll stop soon! Look at this, all you lovers of Vintage ' Ladies Accessories ',a vintage travel case , I was amazed at the fabulous condition of it ,I wish I had found out more of it's history.
I am going to attack this tomorrow !! ,it's bugged me for ages and I'm going to do it!! (and find something for the shoes!)
Here is a couple of cute finds I got today ,a cute little print of an old Tobacconist/Confectionary shop and meet Maude ,Molly ,Thea ,and Jeronimo ?(Mr T 's contribution) (yes we named them) the lady at the op shop insisted I have all 4! for the grand total of $2.00 and the little print was also $2.00 . Cute aren't they (I think!) I know Maia my grand daughter will love them!! Please excuse the over use of 'Cute" the detail in them is quite something.
