First of all...an outfit post! I've spent much of December in scruffs holed up at home working manically on orders, so it was nice to get dressed up for Xmas eve when we had friends round for a meal. 'Scuse my kitchen bin!
Sailor top - Collectif
Hight waist skirt - Lady K Loves
Jewellery - Dolly Cool
Glitter Shoes - Manchester Market!
And the back view of my new bow seamed tights - £3 in the sale from River Island :)
And on to the pressies.....
50s fashion print - from Michael. This is such a fab book. Tons of really great images, perfect inspiration for designers like me!
Journal/Diary covered in original 60s fabric, from Michael.
He didn't realise when he bought this, but the fabric is pretty much the same pattern as our Formica 60s habitat dining table top....as you can see above!
Charity shop challenge goodies from my sister Elaine. Didn't she do well?! I'm so happy with all these cool things. Love both plates, I've been after a square Pyrex cooking dish for ages, and a cool USA measuring jug so I can now make American recipes that are in Cups!
Happy Christmas to me, from me! Some vintage cats eye frames (my 6th pair!). I got these from Etsy for $20. They came from the USA in just 5 days, even with the Christmas post!
I'm going to get my prescription put in these in the new year :)
And a set of 3 60's drinking glasses picked up in my fave local hospice shop, just before Christmas for 75p for the lot. Happy days!
