3 new Girls on the block, and you can name and win 2 of them!

I am excited to announce that we have some new additions to our popular Vintage Sewing Pattern Model brooches. Meet Gwen, she's named after a very special lady. But the other two girls are still waiting for names... That's where you come in! Simply leave a comment here or on facebook suggesting a name for lady 1 and/ or 2 and if your name is chosen you'll get your very own to wear on your winter jacket. Read on...

This is our first nameless gal, she's from a 1960's Butterick pattern and she looks like she's got mischief on her mind!

This is our lovely lady number 2 from an early 50s Australian Ladies Home Journal. Check out that frock!

I can't wait to hear all your lovely suggestions. xx

Saturday Giggle

I thought this might give you a chuckle to start your weekend. This sign graces Anna's Coffee machine at Brewbakers Albion (seriously the best bagels in Brisbane). Now where's my coffee?... Happy Saturday all!

One day... But not today...

I know it's a bit of a cliche, the "girl who wants a shop" but I admit I would like a little bricks and mortar shop one day. When this sweet little shop came up walking distance from my house I was seriously tempted. But as my long suffering husband rightly pointed out I've kinda got enough on my plate right now :-)

So I'll put that dream back on the shelf.... For now....

Rainy Day

Rain, Rain go away... Well at least it's better that the sweltering heat we have had over the last couple of days in Brissy. Don't you just LOVE these Walnut riding boots? I was visiting my wonderful stockist Urban Dweller yesterday (They are in Samford so if you are near there check out the shop it's gorgeous, truly!) and I saw these out the front and squealed like a teenage girl :-) They are definitely on my wish list for rainy days like these.
