Happy Halloween

collage created using vintage paper doilies, paper doll dress, vintage bookplate, trims, old fashioned curtain pull, rhinestones, vintage receipt.

Reno Boy was in charge of going to the corner shop this evening to stock up on lollies for trick or treaters. With specific instructions to only buy wrapped lollies he returns with ...... Barley Sugar! Now from a kids perspective is that a trick or treat?

Friday Flicks

Yesterday afternoon after school RC and I headed out to see The Social Network. I was really interested in seeing this film and it didn't disappoint. It was brilliant, ironic, funny, sad and complex.

Next on the list is Made In Dagenham love a good I Am Woman movie. Can't Wait.

A Little Bit Strictly Ballroom

Fabulous frock find of the day. Lifeline in the Fancy Dress Section. Seriously some of my best finds have been in the fancy dress box and the dog blanket section (the hiding spot for all good chenille) The rhinestones are in perfect condition, not one stone missing and the top of the dress reminds me of some fabulous ballroom number. Perfection x
