Bringing Central Europe to the Arctic. And some vintage
London shops have so many cool things, also for children. Like the Charlie& Lola suitcase and the wooden puzzle, and the rest is for mum.
Kaylovesvintage. She has been so kind to bring central Europe to the Arctic by sending me the poster of the Edward Hopper exhibition she visited. Central Europe is definately an area I find myself in too rarely.
Now it's a bit closer, thanks!
I also got hold of a long 60s cabinet that I've been looking for some time. Do not have space for it, oh well.
I don't know about you, but my hubby is medium to not very pleased about my finds. Most of it he thinks smells of mould. (And to be honest many of these things did, but one owns a washing machine)
I love vintage dresses, I have a thing for them. Aren't these from the sell-out ab fab?
The psychedelic one is very 60s, the one in the middle is in velvet fabric and more leisure 70s- Club Med- relaxing- by- the- pool-dress. Whereas the one to the right is just flowery cotton 70s summer dress.
There is one bummer: The old lady must have been trés petite. I'm very, very far from trés petite, so I don't really know what to do about them. Have joined vintage swap so that's a possibility.
Any other suggestions?
I have donated to Haiti, and I hope you have too.
