Candles & Bunting!



Well its official, i am another year older...and im unsure if im wiser just yet! sorry i haven't posted an outfit this week between my birthday celebrations and christmas i haven't had time to photograph anything!! and im serious, on my birthday bbq i didn't even get a proper head to toe shot (now thats unusual for me).. it was such a lovely day i was super spoiled by my love, he bought me an amazing Aquamarine ring and a brand spanking new mac book pro (shriek) im such a lucky girl!!! as well as that we all went and had a fab bbq down by the river on a perfect day ate till my dress almost popped, laughed till my stomach cramped and drank champagne in very classy plastic wine cups. I had the best weekend!! (my burned shoulders can confirm this) The dress i purchased new from Dangerfield and the bunting i handmade with the cutest pattern paper.....and that cake....i still wish i just had a little piece left.

5 sleeps till Christmas XX

Gramophone Love...



One of my most prized possessions is my HMV Gramophone, even though it needs a little love is beaten up and appears very sorry for itself, i love that it sits comfortably in the corner of my room next to my vintage books (my room is almost a retirement village for vintage items) i have only played it a few times much to the annoyance of my flat mate as it has a spooky eerie sound that might resemble a cat fight!

Like everyone else these past few weeks have been super super busy buying christmas presents, putting up the tree, planning a holiday with my man for next year and organising bits an pieces for my birthday over the weekend! turning the big 25 is a little daunting but im excited for the next year! hopefully it holds big big things for me and the vintage valley shop!!! Im having a little bbq down by the river with a few close friends hopefully the weather isn't too hot..ill be taking lots of pics xx

Happy Monday!
