School's out and it's snow time........










So as you can see yesterday it snowed, wow did it snow!!!!!!
It was so much fun to play in, all the school's were shut and most of the shops in town.
We spent the day by the fire, eating soup and with sparkles all over the floor. (I was sorting out  jewellery)
I was so excited!!!!! I decided to wear the old school gym frock I excitedly bought when I went to the costume sale months ago with the fabulous Miss Helga.
It was a very big tick on the vintage wish list.
Then to top it off,  I am wearing the vintage felt beret with leather trim I found at the red cross shop on Tuesday. Can you believe it another tick on the vintage wish list. I have had many over the years, but they were never quite perfect. This one is, Yay!
So snow, gym frock and beret makes for one terribly happy little squirrel.

  2. Look at the collar on that coat!!!! Squeeee! You look super cute & have you had a haircut???? The snow white pictures look so romantic to a Brisbanite like me who loves the idea of snow. I hope we see some again on our trip to the South Island in September, although I'd rather avoid a polar blast this time! Love Xx

  9. Oh, such a beautiful scene. In the first pic it looks like that big blue butterfly is actually flying! Maybe it is...you've created a magic scene.

    Your beret is like my favourite one, felt with a leather band. I'm glad you're feel so marvellous in your treasures. The sparkly floor is a look I'd like to have in my home too.

  13. You look very happy playing in the snow. And you had quite a lot! And I think it was rather cosy sitting by the fire when it's cold outside. Have fun in the snow, Vanessa!

  14. SO beautiful! Oh it looks like it should be Christmas. We have been watching the new with envy (except for those poor people without electricity). I adore your outfit, super cute.

  15. That coat is lovely. I love the collar. It's so exciting when you can tick things off your vintage wish list. I had a beret with leather trim like that when I was little. I wish I still had it.

  18. These photos are adorable! Isn't it just a fabulous feeling when you are able to get something that you have wanted for so long, my search at the moment is for the perfect pair of cowboy boots!
