So it ain't news that I'm a bit weak for vintage clothing! And seeing as I have a LOT of autumn/winter stock in the online store I've decided to pick out a few of my favourites for the next 7 days and share them with you all on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Just search #weekforvintage and of course, share you own photos if you're a vintage addict too!

We celebrated little Nancy's birthday yesterday with lots of cake, Peppa Pig, family and friends. She was a little overwhelmed at the start but soon got into the swing of things and keep running up to the table filled with sweet things shouting "Chocolate Me!" This little two year old knows what she wants and how to ask for it. Hope you had a wonderful day little miss.

You've been in this big world now for two years, well almost. Tomorrow is your second birthday and at 7.15pm you will be exactly two years old.
That'll be 730 days.
That's over 4000 nappy changes.
You've had almost 730 warm bottles of milk in the morning.
Countless bowls of cereal and definitely over 50 have ended up on the floor.
You've been to the park nearly everyday of your life, whether it was just for a walk or to play on the swings.
You've stolen lots of hearts and I can imagine there'll be a few more in the future.
You've travelled in a car, a train, a bus and a plane.
You've eaten a lot of ice-cream and not enough vegetables.
You've had your picture taken probably too much but I'm definitely one of those mothers who likes to document everything and share it too.
You've thrown quite a few tantrums with plenty more to come.
You've given me lots of cuddles but I'd like to have a whole lot more.
You've learned so many words that now you're onto sentences.
You've read over 1000 books before bed because one is never enough.
But there's a whole lot you haven't done yet.
Here's to the next 365 days.
Love Mum x

I have listed lots of new items in the store recently including these four above. Lots of vintage designer pieces in my autumn and winter stock so some of these beauties are very special. I've put one tweed pencil skirt aside for myself, as usual, I couldn't resist!

Today we decided to take full advantage of the sunshine and warmth and had a little picnic of sausage sandwiches and strawberries by the marina. Despite a tantrum regarding items on the picnic menu we tried our best to enjoy the afternoon and watched the trains come in and out of the city. We'll miss you balmy afternoons. Come visit us again next year!

These are probably the last few photographs of little Nancy as a one year old. Holy moly! How did that happen?! Sometimes I still take a small moment to myself to remember that I'm a mum now...a mum to a two year old will probably sink in by her third birthday I guess.

So just a few days ago we had the last place filled for our autumn Oh Me, Oh My DIY! workshop. The three of us really couldn't believe it as this is very much a new small biz to us. Now, that we have all our mentors and attendees ready to roll, we're getting down to the nitty-gritty of the day with lots of sourcing for the goodie bags, decorating ideas and planning a few surprises for everyone on the day. From now until the 28th, we've lots to do but this is the part we love the most!
