Little Miss Sunshine........









Hello Poppets!!!

This is the swirly little beam of yellow 60's sunshine I brought in Nelson, boy did I get some comments and sideway glances when I wore her yesterday. The fabric is so light that I had a few petticoat/underwear flashes thanks to the pesky wind, resulting in more sideway glances eeekkk!!! 
Sorry still no pics of Napier it was blowing a gale there but we did have a look at some of the vintage shops, lots of lovely things out of this wee squirrels budget.
We found the most darling wee crafters boutique called "Gather", we had a lovely chat to the owner Nikki who kindly recognized us from the "Frankie Spaces".

So when you can't buy vintage treasure whats the next best thing?????
CHOCOLATE!!!!
Even better squirrel chocolate!!!

We called into "The Silky Oak Chocolate Company"(perfect for squirrels), oh my gosh the smells was just heavenly as soon as you walk in the door.
Squirrel for me and acorn for Warren that seems fair, yes?????
I did share the squirrel.
Yummy!!!!

I am feeling all inspired to make my own chocolates when we have a home again, so happy I found these chocolates moulds for $4.00 for the lot in a wee antique shop in Carterton.
Guess which is my favorite?

Today has been a stay in "Basil" day doing things like washing and cleaning, I have been sewing a couple of brooches, will show you poppets later.


Love V&W
