Oops, I didn't realise how quickly the time has gone since my last post! The 'vintage party' I talked about as happening in a few weeks is actually this Friday and I'm really excited to see how that goes. A couple weeks ago it was my Birthday and I spent a lovely time celebrating that milestone with separate family and friends gatherings and a nice lunch in between with my Mum, Dad and boyfriend. I was so spoilt by the thoughtfulness of everyone's gifts. I received a beautiful pearl ring from Mum and Dad and a fancy new watch from my boyfriend to replace Mickey who finally died after multiple battery changes. Gran and Grandpa gave me a beautiful key pendant which I had picked out myself and absolutely love. I wore it with a pale blue 1950s day dress to my family birthday gathering (cue awkward posing)...

In amongst all the shiny new gifts, I also received some wonderfully old things including this gold (!) Glomesh bag from Mum & Dad to add to my favourite collection.
Gran gave me this small Park Lane purse that belonged to my great grandmother. The original warranty certificate states the date of purchase as Christmas Eve 1973. The purse has been kept brand new in its box all this time and had a couple lucky 2 cent pieces inside. Also in the box was a small card that reads "INSPECTED BY No. 5" - how curious! I wonder who "No. 5" is? Sounds a bit sci-fi to me!
In other news, my followers have reached triple figures! (Sounds so weird saying 'followers' haha). I'm hoping to celebrate with a giveaway in the near future so I'm keeping my eyes peeled for something nice. I was thinking perhaps a nice vintage bag or scarf but who knows!
