The day started in the most wonderful way!!!!! Maree and Sarah came out and gave me this amazing wee squirrel brooch. Mr Squirrel has beautiful jade leaves, the wee card that came with him said it would bring it's owner fortune and tranquility. Very needed.
Oh thank you ladies, he was the perfect present today. I just think he's wonderful.

While we were in there we had the opportunity to see what was our old Two Squirrels vintage space, now a carpark and Tete a Tete vintage, well as you can see pretty sad.
Strange night, happiness for the people we love dearly and wish all the best for in there new shop, sadness to see what was left of the two spaces that were such a big part of our lives.

Hey sweet-peas as you can see I have had a wee hair cutting session. Hmmm it's a tad short. I may need straighten it. Poor wee fringe.
Now this is one of the dresses I have decided does not work for me, so one last wear. I'll wash it next week and then it's ready for a new poppet to love when she goes into the nest.
Happy weekend everyone!!!

I have decided that I really don't suit yellow as a main garment, but because I do love the colour, it's accessories I need.
Centre stage, the cute wee yellow shoes, thank you op-shop on Thursday.
Worn with my teal 60's dress and yellow tie around waist.
So then all day in the nest everything with yellow on it seemed to stand out.
My little yellow honed eyes spotted this very cool book in the shop. Well then sweet-peas I started to read it, and then it became a lesson on bumble bees. I never knew that Australia does not have bumble bees, also they are known as humble bees. Oh this is great, thank you Crosbie Morrison, who was one dapper chappie.
Spent the rest of the day bumble bee hunting!
So ends Vanessa's nature talk.

I forgot how much I loved the pattern, orange roses with the fabulous green background.
It's seems crazy to look at the feature in the "Spaces" now and realize that it's all gone. Oh but we have lovely memories.
So here's to new memories being made in the new home of Tete a Tete and Two squirrels!!!! Our backyard Nest.
