Danish-looking pull-along duck, present from my Mum
Home-made duck on blue wheels, twenty cents, op-shopped
I never dreamt when I mentioned my fledgeling collection of Ladybirds a few weeks ago that it would grow so quickly.
This is due in the main, to some lovely bloggy friends.
I've already mentioned Nelly's generous donation to my cause...gosh she has a heart of gold, the copy of Five Little Kittens she so generously gave me, is a very old one (thanks for the info Vanessa) I will treasure it Nelly.
And the Ladybird snail mail kept coming!
Em (who really is a vintage sweetheart) Look what she (very sneakily!) left in my mail box
yep. you guessed it, a bundle of
(pretty special gift wrapping eh?)
darling Dee who not only sent me Ladybirds, including a rare copy of Cinderella (rare because Cinder's is wearing three different dresses) but a whole pile of lovely goodies...
more gorgeous gift wrap! which I've saved btw
do you spy the tea towels?
I'll show you them properly another time
And here's a pic of my little shelf a-la-Ladybird now
While I'm minding my P's & Q's, thank you to lovely Loo. Another gift wrapper extrordinaire! Her parcel came wrapped in a chiffon scarf that used to be her Mum's (awww!) and it was a beauty...
habitat, no less!
Acorn and Will blue bird (of happiness!) brooch
(I had to get my daughter to help me put it together...sad, but true)
Told ya. And if all that wasn't enough, Loo also gave me the cutest vintage purse too! Can you guess what colour it was?
Spoilt rotten I was and it's not even my birthday!
There's one more. Thank you that is.
This one goes out to Claire who kindly sent me the latest issue of Vintage Life. I've never seen it in book shops or newsagents here, so receiving it was a real treat.
Now, after all those thank you's (phew!) there's one more thing I have to get off my chest:
Some of you may have noticed my little shop has disappeared into the ether...
In a nutshell, I have dropped the shop...you could say it was a flop.
It didn't feel right so it had to go. Simple as that.
Thank you (crikey! there's another one!) for your kind comments and support etc I really appreciated it and I apologise if I've disappointed any of you.
You are all the "ducks nuts" (heard that on the radio today and liked it, plus I like me a theme!)
