When others Understand your Love of Vintage and Send Packages of Glory....

Yesterday afternoon the Big V arrived home early from work and through the door he carried a huge package. He joked and suggested that I had been neck deep in online shopping he was unaware of, not that he would really care but it was he's attempt of joking about the situation. Anyways I was utterly stunned at this weighty package from the glorious and delightful Allison from Just Underneath.

There is just something about receiving lovely gifts from blogging pals, it makes it that little more special when you've never once had a chance to meet in person but they think of you and spend a little time bundling something together for you, just because.

This just because package left me gobsmacked and touched and ever so grateful. I'm hopeful that with the ingenious styling tricks I'll be sporting a few of these pieces in a style post sometime soon.
1.First up is this ever so lovely crochet white vest for the hippy in me. 2.A non-vintage but could easily pass as vintage denim print maxi a-line skirt. I'm seeing the vest and skirt coming together can't you? 3.A beautiful bright red jacket. 4.A lovely beaded coat hanger. My first beaded one as my others are crocheted, knitted and padded ones. 5.Finally a lovely long length of this fabulous fabric, which will now join my collection of fabrics that are destined for maxi skirts I think.

If I haven't said it enough I'll say it again our little vintage loving and blogging community in general is such a wonderful one. It truly has added so many positives to my life over the years, as well as new friends who get me, my passions and my crazy. Allison my sweet thank you so much once again, I truly feel spoilt. X
