Off To The Big Apple

Tomorrow my husband & I are jetting off to New York for 4 nights.  We will then fly to Atlanta & then drive to Tennessee for 3 nights.  We will be there for Thanksgiving & will spend it with my husband's penfriend, Sheila, whom he met 27 years ago at a church conference.  After that it's on to other friends in Alabama & then 2 nights in Nashville & then back to New York for a night before flying home.

I'm looking forward to exploring the markets & vintage shops & of course all the other attractions on offer.
I think the highlight though will be making new friends & experiencing life in their homes especially Thanksgiving.

My First Panda

Finally finished this little guy!  I made him out of dyed viscose & dark brown viscose from a vintage jacket.  He has button joints & wears an old vintage key around his neck.   He'll be at the Summbertime Doll & Bear Show tomorrow with me.

Last Bear Show This Sunday

This coming Sunday is the last doll & bear show of the year (phew)!  It's on at the RNA Showground in the auditorium from 10 - 4pm.  I've been hard at work finishing things off & sorting out lots of vintage goodies.

Hope to see you there otherwise have a great weekend!

Latest Op Shop Find

Today I was pleased to find this little set of drawers at one of the local op-shops.  I had no intention of buying drawers but I just couldn't resist.  They have old fabric on the front of the drawers & gorgeous little handles.   Actually they'll be great storage for some of my laces.

Guess who got to babysit last night!  He was so good & basically slept the whole time.

Collectorama Is On Again This Saturday!

Tomorrow Pam & I are heading off to Nambour to set up our stall for Saturday.  It's at the Showgrounds from 7.30 - 2.00pm.  The weather is looking good so hopefully it will be a great day!
I just love all these old cookie cutters & wee tart tins I picked up from a garage sale last weekend.  I also found the chair & this vintage basket as well.

Hope to see you Saturday!
