Gina over at Patra's Place spotted the Coronation hair pins at a haberdashery shop in Melbourne and very generously thought of me. The middle pin has a crown and lucky for me all the pins are in place and perfect. Gina then found the perfect card to post them in with a picture of a Birman cat on the front. I'm sure Charlotte must have done modelling in her younger days; she says not! Thank you Gina, I love the card of hair pins, at the moment displayed on my dressing table. A new apron for my collection with a design of koookaburras. A 1950's design and even has the price of 1shilling and threepence pencilled on the side. Complete but not made up, when I received it I saw it was machine embroidered, not sure if the ebay seller knew this, I am still very pleased with the apron and happy to have it in my collection.
The apron on the left was bought at an op. shop this week, it's almost identical to one bought years ago from another op. shop so I'm showing the back of that one. Both aprons have hand embroidered flowers.
Had to have a cat in the mix, here is Emily already under the doona warming up my bed for me.
Only problem is the weather has warmed up a lot so I would rather not have a pre-warmed bed but don't want to hurt Emily's feelings by telling her.

Not very tall, not very slim and more bad hair days than good. Don't like cooking or gardening so recipes and gardening hints will never appear on my blog.
To sum me up, think minimalist, I am the opposite.
