Lace Mania

I found a stack of lace and trims at an op shop recently and have only just got around to taking pics. Some of it is such beautiful quality, particularly the cotton trims. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with it all yet but I'm sure I'll find something to do with them... At the moment I'm thinking of decorating bibs and baby singlets for a friends' little girl.. I think that would be quite girly and cute!

Op Shop Buys

These are my buys from Saturday. I couldn't believe my eyes when I found this white dress. I had been searching for a vintage white dress for ages but all the ones I had found before it weren't in good condition, i.e. stains, tears or just generally falling apart. It was more than I usually like to spend on things at op shops - $25.. but when I am going to see another one of similar condition? Yeah, I'm trying to justify it...

White dress - Vinnies, $25
Blue & black dress - Salvos, $4
Yellow dot shorts - Salvos $.50c
Floral nightie - Salvos $.50c
Yellow slip - Salvos $3.50

Spring in my step

Happy Spring Everyone. I'm already wholeheartedly embracing the change in season. I went op shopping yesterday for Spring/Summer buys and found this jumpsuit amongst a few other items. When I bought it I thought that I'd turn it into a dress but now that I've tried it on I think I fancy it as a jumpsuit. Seriously looked like the most hideous thing ever on the hanger, but the fabric is quite cute I thought.
I have always thought how awesome those baby Bonds Easysuits would be in Adult size... so super comfortable, even if only to wear about the house.. (yes I know I am so sad, and such a homebody!) Last Winter Peter Alexander did a full length jumpsuit in soft cotton and I was so tempted. When I mentioned it to Mr he just looked at me as if to say 'seriously, am I going to sleep next to a giant baby every night?'

Stay tuned for more pics of my op shop buys in the coming days...
