Please Mr Postman

Actually my postman takes the piss out of me for buying lots from ebay, he was even warned about by the previous postman, such a bitch.

Luckily I wasn't at home for his remontrations when my package of delights arrive from the amazing Vix
And what a package it was! I got some amazing things!








The bag fits back into a clip purse - how cool! I was so excited about the bird embroidery as it's something I've been after for ages and not found on ebay! So thanks so much to Vix, I'll be wearing at least some of this in London tomorrow!

You know when you're a charity shop regular when you accidently smash something and the shop assistant says "oh don't worry, you're always in here" and insisted I didn't pay the £1.99 - I donated £1 out of guilt
This was Oxfam and I went back in there today and picked up this book... The Book Of Drawing from 1859, for a mere £1.49.



I also found a use for the barkcloth shoe holder from the jumble sale.... a scarf tidy






Do you like plaid? Do you like Pintrest? My friend has got a great preppy Americana themed page, so many coats I want. It's pretty much coat porn..... http://pinterest.com/therollcall/the-mud-room/

Thanks again to Vix, you made my week!
 This is for you!

Vix's parcels of joy are the stuff of legend, she's a marvellous woman!
Great pressies, what pretty pictures, and the bangles and earrings will sort out that creme caramel outfit!
Good thinking with the scarf tidy. I so need something to make me tidier... xxx

It is funny when you become well known in your neighourhood for something. The thing is, if you never bought another item, that is how you will always be seen now.

hehehe, I have the very same thing. I am always having parcels delivered as I buy mainly online, I can see the look in their eyes when they knock on the door, again!

The drawing book is an amazing find! We would be hard pressed to find something of that age here. Something 100 years old to us is classed as ancient.

What a gorgeous parcel of goodies, and happy birthday too!

Enjoy your weekend, Tam x

It's Helen! I can't believe you found a clip of her i haven't seen. I'll be studying that and copying the moves next time I'm out with the girls, mark my words!!
So glad everything was okay for you. You must read the book and try and track down the film, it's one of Morrissey's favourites, too. xxx
