Hello Betty......

Here I was driving in Cairns on holidays towing a caravan and look what we see...

Once that van was set up and the kids were all good we went back looking for Betty....What a treasure trove.
This funky chick meet us in the door, so much to see in this shop I had a great time.

Furniture, clothes, brick-a- brac every thing, they had. Being on holidays I couldn't get to much.
I got some records, broaches and a out fit.

Sorry it's a bit blurry, I had the boots already though. I know this will be my new favourite winter outfit.
I went into to so many vintage and thrift shops on holidays, the kids were groaning hahaha. Never mind I know deep inside they were having fun........
Till next time

Sheet to Skirt.........

Hi All
Wanted to share my favourite skirt with you.
I have a great collection of vintage sheets and when I got this one I new it would make a great summer skirt.

I even got some cute little flats to go with it.

But I mostly just use my sheets on my bed.

The purple ones below are my favourites though.

Have a great week.

What is vintage?

Hi and welcome to my blog.
I have been blogging for a few years now and in that time I have seen a change, more and more people are buying vintage items.
But what is vintage?
Is it a collection of fine bone china?
Or may-be Old linen.
Furniture even for inside and out. Then there are some wonderful blogs out there about vintage clothing.

I have always shopped at op shops, my Mother and Grand mother did as well. My Grandmother never bought any thing new in her life. My earliest memories of her is going around the thrift shops for bargains.
This blog will be dedicated to showing all my wonderful finds in these shops.
What is Vintage to you.
