First Time

Well here it is ladies, after spending the past month browsing happily through your inspirational pages I’ve decided to take the plunge and give it a go myself and hope I can bring some of the same enjoyment I’ve experienced to you.

Alas I am still waiting for my own home to create a vintage oasis but that doesn’t stop me from buying treasures along the way (which i hope you don't mind me sharing with you!) that I hope to use in the future and here are some recent purchases.

These ladybird books I had as a child and for 20p I couldn’t ignore reclaiming some memories and thought they would be useful for scrapbooking as would the dictionaries I was specifically looking for (I have some ideas to play with). I wasn’t sure about this rose’s book until I saw this picture of the elegant lady and had to buy it, again I’m sure it’ll become useful in a project somewhere.

The glasses I’m sure I’ll use for some occasion and I can never resist a piece of china decorated with roses and florals!The heart shaped plate I love and can see it being part of some Valentines fun... maybe some cute cupcakes decorated with icing sugar from this beautiful glass shaker
