I'm still here!

So! Life has gotten rather in the way of blogging recently,but I'm still here! just had to take a little break because of some major life changes;one of them meaning I am now looking for a new job at a less then ideal time! I'm sure lots of you are going through the same thing at the moment!

Now for the fun stuff. Here's some  pictures of a few vintage treasures I 've picked up recently.
It's a very drizzly,dull,autumnal day here so  it's been really hard to get decent pics but here goes:

I just love this apron, the fabric is so unusual!
I knew I wanted this straight away. It's so kitch
in a good way I think
My lovely new vintage dress.Actually looks better
on me but will have to wait for fiancee to come
home to take more pics

As there have been quite a few recent additions I hate  to admit that the house is getting just a tad full and fiancee  a bit grumbly at my collecting habits so I have decided to open an Etsy store which will be opening in the next couple of days so watch this space.Here's a little peak at one of the  items I will have in my store:

Original Tala icing set.It's complete and looks like it's never
 been used.It even has the instruction leaflet
More on this in my next blogpost but I can let you know now that I will have bags,dresses,hats,
blouses,belts,aprons,fabrics and a selection of Original Mary Quant tights in packets.

Me Made Months Practice

I really wanted to take part this time  but I didn't think I'd have enough to wear so I thought I'd have a little practice run. Here's the first outfit I put together. It's all Me Made.(even the knickers) I made the skirt and top when I had only just started sewing so they aren't exactly perfect and I guess I might not choose this outfit if I could wear anything I want but It's perfectly wearable so it should be worn.

I really hate the horrible brown carpet  but the landlord doesn't so we're not getting a new one in a hurry.It actually looks better on the picture then it does in reality.

Buttons are here!

I wanted to get these done a little while ago but my printer/ scanner refuses to cooperate so I had to come up with another idea. If you have any more ideas of other buttons you'd like please let me know.I'm really more of a visual person so coming up with catchy phrases etc is really not my thing. I have allready made buttons for refashions 4 and 5 but I'll get those out later. I thought you probably wouldn't be that far yet. I would also like to make buttons for mending and for the all important first step of facing the wardobe clutter.

Should you have any problems using them please do let me know and I'll help.
