Squirrelling away..............










I do love 'squirrelling' away fabulous vintage fabric......
Many pieces have sadly been tucked away
for a long long time.
Its time for them to leave my little storage case as they are far
to pretty to not be made into something fabulous.

So now listed on
today......much more to come.

Little market monsters................









Ok.........yay!!!
First market done and dusted.

The little squirrel monsters are all unpacked and 
ready to put there little furry paws up after
a fantastic day catching up with the gorgeous 
people who came along to the 
'St Clair Beach Market'.

So many great stalls,
fabulous customers, 
THANK YOU.
A big thanks to Jenny and her team
for a very well organised event.

Oh I may have been a naughty monster too!!!
The great tan leather boots I have on are not the
boots I went to market in......oops.....
They were just to good not to buy, a little treat for me!
Naughty.

One Little Trip...............










The squirrels made a very quick trip to
deliver some treasures to Christchurch.
Of course this means stopping at some of our 
favourite vintage shops to find treasure for ourselves.

First up 'Tiger Lily' in Oamaru
where a little knitted bunny said 
'Take Me HOME'
'Why yes'........said one little 
squirrel.

And we always stop into Serendipity in Timaru.

Then a fantastic visit to 
in Mayfield.
I was so blown away when Jan & Leanne
had an amazing gift for me......
The most perfect tooled leather handbag......
with one fantastic squirrel on it.


Thats ONE happy squirrel.

Taking a tea break...........











We have had some truly lovely days.....
sunny and even a little warmth.

Warren and I decided it was the perfect time to put up the 
fantastic 50's canvas tent we bought a few months ago.

So taking a break from photographing....
it seemed only fitting to get out a deck-chair 
and have a cup of tea.
Quiet time reading a 1960's
'Home Journal' yay.

Also a great time to model one of the very cute 
60's dresses that we are popping on-line tonight.


Hope its been a lovely day for you.......
Super excited spring is just around the corner.
