Hair inspiration

Getting a bit of length back in my post hospital hair. The pixie cut was great at the time but I miss my victory rolls. There's still not enough length to do anything with it but I've started looking at styles for shorter hair. Today's inspiration is from vintage lass Johanna Ost.



Now my hair's not long enough for any of these yet. I think I'm going to need some scarves to se me through!

Sunshine on a rainy day

I got a parcel in the mail!



A sweet little tea cosy that just fits my red enamel teapot from the Imperial War Museum. Thanks Dad and Graziella!

In which I go shopping and spend nothing

Good thing = Spotlight voucher
Extra good thing = Spotlight sale
Super duper good thing  = complicated, unadvertised 40% discount scheme
Super duper but slightly dodgy good thing = free stuff!

The sun was shining, the sky was blue. Kim had taken me out to the French patisserie for coffee. Spotlight was just around the corner. I was only going in for interfacing...





All thus is blouses-to-be with vintage buttons from L'uccello (I have zero voucher!)

The dodgy part of all this is this -


Didn't scan through the register! I have brown wool for a skirt. Just need lining from The Fabric Store on Brunswick Street. Who are having a sale. And guess who has a voucher? Yay!!
