Oh sweet-peas we are so hoping you will pop out and see us. We have a nest of treasure.
Thank you to our lovely parents for all they have done to get us up in running.
A very big hug to all the wonderful sweet-peas who have supported us through what has been the most yucky time ever.

This wee dress I brought way back at the start of the year and it's been waiting ever since for it's day in the sun or ivy.
Lovely fresh floral pattern in a easy to wear style, homemade, cotton and today worn with sneakers as miss V has sore feet from ironing for three hours last night.
Why ironing??? Because sweet-peas it's only a week till the nest (pop-up shop) is open! Oh yeah!!!!
On Sunday night we will post all the secret squirrel details on where the nest is and times. Oh nuts better get more ironing done.

I really like the cut but after seeing these photo's, I am to big and curvy for it. So into the wash and into the nest for some else to love.
Talking about the curves it's time to move some of the "C" from mine.
Stop cookies, chocolate, cake and chippies!!!! You shall not pass my lips.
Seven days to the nest is open!!!!!

So needed to get dressed up and pop on a frock! Over the overalls.
This is the great wee frock I found in the Invercargill Savemart. Nice 50's style but poly cotton, homemade so think it's 70's.
This is a good blue for me, and the pattern has wee butterflies on it, pretty.
Yummy lunch at the lovely "cafe de la Gare" at the Rangiora railway station.
Beautiful sunny day again, thanks weather fairies.

It's so sad to look back at all that has happened.
My wee heart is still sad when I remember our two lovely treasure shops.
Tete a Tete and Two Squirrels vintage are just a memory as we knew them.
Bless all those who have lost so much and may the future be filled with sparkles of happiness.

We both were very busy little squirrels.
I did a massive amount of hand washing and cleaning treasure for the shop.
We also did lots of gardening and cleaning up the property for when all you poppets come to play vintage shop.
The most fun was going and buying some pretty flowers.
Garden clothes today, sorry a wee scruffy squirrel.

Why you ask???
Well we went to the fab new "Retropolitan" shop and I got two beautiful vintage frocks. Happiness!
Then to make the day the best kind of day, we meet other vintage loving poppets.
Like the very very gorgeous Miss Helga and her partner G, from helgavontrollop.blogspot.com. Happiness!!!
Then the beautiful sweet Mirabel back from Japan. Welcome home! More happiness.
Then the lovely Melanie and Marian also looking for vintage treasure! Happy happy.
Then to The Painted Room, more vintage treasure and lovely poppets.
So night night from two happy little squirrels.

It's so much fun when you find new ways of wearing a recent acquisition.
So here is the navy polka dot dress with a fresh green knit jersey & polka dot 70's jacket.
The great vinyl travel bag from the 60's was a lovely find in a vintage shop in Nelson.
Perfect for an afternoon with a gorgeous friend.
