Today I needed a pretty pink frock to make the blues of yesterday disappear. This gorgeous 50's party dress was in Tete a Tete vintage for about 6 months and never found a sweet-pea to take her home.
So I decided to make her my "I need to feel pretty dress", the party dress to wear in the day.
Just like a blossom fairy in the orchard, at the home of the Two Squirrels. Love V

Came back with a car of treasure, lots of fun.
I got the great yellow crochet cardy at Retro Funk. Oh and don't you love the wee donkey, he was a fab present from the Funky owners. Ta guys!
Lots of other treasure I will share.
Yeah, open at the nest tomorrow, would love to see you sweet-peas.
Night night from a very tired squirrel.

Yip it is a kids one, circa 50's I think. But the very best thing is it has bunnies on it that are painting carrots. Oh I am so in love with it.
It will require a carefully planned outfit that will high light this wee poppet. Stay tuned sweet-peas.

It's the gorgeous frock I brought on the day that Retropolitan re-opened, she has been in waiting for her day in the spot light(sun light).
Sorry I look very tired in this photo.
Next post should be for that day. Love V

Anyhow this was Saturday's outfit. A lovely teal blue 50's dress with white flocking(so have to watch when you say that fast).
Oh so happy to find at last the most beautiful bird brooch(Tui) made by the amazing Katy. This is the said present that went to another dimension and nearly sent me to a crazy land trying to find it.
Katy makes the most treasured felt yummies, I am so lucky to be the very proud owner of so much of her work. Please click on her name to see her site.
Hmmm going to be on the back foot as have other Saturday pics to show you, we will have to pretend Saturday was Sunday and Monday! Love V

This is a new spot dress that I just love. It is a great fit and in a love light cotton, navy blue, 50's I would say.
I brought it from Shelley at Ménage a Trois vintage in New Brighton.
So the madness continues with polka-dot dresses, yip I have vintage measles me thinks.
The little red swallow brooch was a gift from my friend Katherine.
Selby navy shoes, nice.
Ok sweet-peas that's it I think. See you tomorrow. Love V
We had lots of beautiful and gorgeous ladies out today!!! Oops and one handsome man(sorry G).
The fabulous Helga came out and found a dress that looked absolutely gorgeous on her. We had the best time talking about fashion, vintage and blogging, oh and eating chocolate that she so kindly brought out.What a fun afternoon.
I realize now how much I missed these special connections with like minded lovelies.
Since we opened the nest it's that connection that has made my heart happy again.

Sorry I was not feeling so good yesterday, I had a big fall on Sunday morning, my knees and elbows are bruised and grazed. I am such a ninny!
So to make me feel better today I am wearing the cute we dress I brought at a market. Oh so 70's, I love pinafore dresses. The small floral print and the polka dots in a peasant style just perfect. Just hope I'm not to old for it.
Wearing the knit hat the lovely Shirley from "The Barn on Giles" gave me. They open in a few weeks, check out there blog for details.
Sorry looking tired, hard to sleep when you are pretty sore. Love V

Lines of beautiful vintage scarves in the wind so pretty.
Another sunny day, lovely to wear a 50's cotton day dress. I love this one but have decided she is ready to find a new home. So after a turn on the clothes line she will be in the shop next weekend. Love V

I am sure you sweet-peas understand this, my wardrobe is directly effected by mood and certain phases.
Bright colour seems to reflect that we finally have something bright happening. Yeah to a pop up nest with vintage treasure in the backyard.
Have a BRIGHT and happy weekend sweet-peas. Love V
