Fun finds and retro uber cool.

Hi everyone 

I've been finding some really cool bits and pieces
Lately at the opp shops and thru the estates we have been picking up.
First pic is a funky fringed 1980s suede jacket 

Second pic is a Merivale faux fur jacket and skirt.
For our overseas readers Merivale was a fabulous store in Australia that was our version of Biba in the UK Palm trees fabulous clothing the hot spot for 1970s-80s cool.
And the third pic is a plaster aboriginal figures from the 1950s-60s that is classic kitchen and it's going straight to the caravan! So I can enjoy it for years to come .

Yes I know it's been a while!

Hi Everyone,
It's been a while,lots of excuses but mainly one been finding Facebook a little easier,lots of pictures and not so much writing.
But over the last couple of months I've been doing some interesting things.
Lots of the usual stuff like being a mum,estates,opp shopping and endless house work ,but not enough time for sewing!
On a good note ,I'm involved in starting up an opp shop to raise money for my daughters school,which has reminded me of my corporate other life from nearly ten years ago.
So I've added photos of a couple of projects that I've been working on the first two are a dress made from vintage scraps and the third is a Doyley quilt made from damaged doileys that are to pretty to throw away.
So enjoy the photos and hopefully I will be back to regular blogging!
Cheers Lyn
