The fabric of life

Whilst away on my travels to Edinburgh, the furthest north I've ever been, I found myself not only a bargain... But an emporium. A vintage emporium infact. Armstrong's Vintage Emporium to be completely accurate. Thoroughly recommend visiting all three of their stores in Edinburgh if you're around those parts. I could have spent the entire 4 days there but was kind to my boyfriend and narrowed it down to just a few hours... A day.

Armed with just a fiver I got three pieces of fabric and a sense of achievement. Can't say better than that.

I'm finally on Etsy

After being housebound for the last 3 days, with only the occasional trip out for the essentials (wine), I have finally got some items onto my Etsy shop! I won't lie, it's been hard work, with more than the odd stressful moment, but I've enjoyed it and am feeling pretty pleased with myself tonight. Now to sit back... And finally turn the laptop off!

Next year's Christmas present?

A spot of bedtime Etsy browsing has led me to this gorgeous vintage 70's secretary dress by vicmizzy. What a shame Santa's been and gone...

Quick mention

Just a quick update for now... A big happy birthday to the man in my life for yesterday! He's helped a lot with prep for my new website so he deserves a mention and a thank you I think.

Sneak peak

Preparations for my website and Etsy shop are well and truly underway. Here's just one of the pics from yesterday's photoshoot, watermarked and all! Taking a while to get everything perfect and screen-worthy but things are now coming together.

Also spurring me on is the arrival of some new fabrics soon to be made into cosmetic bags and shopping bags. Watch this space...
