Vintage Love through the mail!

I am STILL sick and I am very much over it!! I thought I was better last weekend, but then this week has been very horrible and difficult as I have felt sick all week. I managed a whole day of work on Monday, went home yesterday at 1pm and shouldn't have really gone in to work at all today but I had a meeting a 9am I needed to go to so I went in and left at about 11am or so. It's not fun at all being sick - I am really rather down in the dumps about it!

On the upside, I recently received a package of vintage goodies from Curtise at the The Secondhand Years in the mail. Vintage goodies all the way from the UK - yah!

First up is this lovely blue vintage frock complete with tags!! I've added the tags to my art journal as I thought they were far too fun to throw away. If you want to see more of this frock check out this post at The Secondhand Years. I promise to include it in an outfit post soon too.
Curtise also included some cute accessories with my package - first up is this animal print ring - she must know how much I love both oversized rings and animal print.
She also sent me this pendant necklace with a lovely blue stone - sorry about the blurry picture!

She also sent this cute card of some ladies having a blast at some kind of fair - thanks so much for everything Curtise, you are so thoughtful.

It's now time to try and keep warm (the weather is freezing here!) and try and get better.

Sorry to read that you are not feeling well. I am glad that you received a lovely package to cheer you up. I love crimplene and I also keep tags because they are too cool to throw away. Hope you are looking after yourself....and yes winter is on its way, so its good that you will be rugged up with cool leg warmers and scarf from the clothes swap. Maybe we could catch up when you come to Dunedin?

Oh no, still poorly - that's crap! Hope you feel better soon, I hate it when illnesses linger on (I had a cold/flu bug which went on for a MONTH, I was so pissed off.)
So pleased that you are happy with the frock and the bits'n'pieces. I LOVE finding vintage things with the original tags and always keep them!
Take care of yourself, looking forward to seeing you rock the frock! xxxxxxx
