And the good things just keep coming...

L'uccello had a sale! I had a voucher! Yeehar! 

Vintage buttons, appliqué, French soaps and Potuguese bath salts. Plus some super cheap fabric for a blouse. I had some sewing that was all done save for the buttons so I was able to finish those off on the weekend. 

No more vouchers. So sad.

I am a winner!

Oh happy day! I won a prize!! 

Thanks to the Vintage Starlet and Arthelia's Attic I have a new platinum snood.

So my hair is still a bit short after hospital so this is an aspirational piece!

Today is the 71st anniversary of the Normandy landings, the opening salvo of Operation Overlord.

I had to look it up but the D in D-day seems to stand for 'day'!
