love makes the world go round...
today's post is all about sharing the love...
a little while ago now I bought this globe for my husband's birthday (remember our collection...) from Tamara's lovely little etsy shop A Treasured Past. Just look at the thoughtful way Tamara wrapped it...
she knew it was for Anthony's birthday so she tied it up with a groovy orange tie. I thought it was such a lovely gesture and how Tamara knew that orange is a favourite colour in this house I'll never know! Little things like this make all the difference to me and I was really touched by her thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
Unfortunately Anthony got to the posty before me Tamara, so my surprise was ruined, he does really like the globe though...
There are lots of interesting things for sale in Tamara's shop, like this gorgeously beaten up green tray
and the good news is that Tamara is having a little sale at the moment so now might be a good time to check it out, I know you will be a happy customer if you decide to buy something. Tamara also has a lovely blog too, if you didn't already know...find it here
Next up, I want to introduce you to the very sweet Miss Aliya. Aliya is from Perth just like me (and us Perth girls have to stick together!) Aliya is going to be a Musicologist when she "grows up", how cool is that...and apart from writing a very pretty blog called Papermoons and Macarons she has also just opened an etsy shop which sells the nicest vintage clothes...I am going to buy this dress
isn't it lovely...
Aliya sources a lot of her clothes from Singapore so her little shop silver tabby vintage (what a cute name for a shop!) is the place to go if you're looking for something unique and special...like this
My last Friday shout out is even closer to home...just look at these gorgeous summer p.j's my very own Annabel made in her sewing class at school. And she made them from a vintage sheet too.
and yep, I've already put an order in!
(for sewing lessons AND a pair of p.j's!)
have a lovely weekend and thanks for reading x
