I bought this 1940’s Gaberdine jacket before Christmas from Snoopers Paradise but sadly the weather just hasn’t been warm enough to wear it. I have been snuggled into knee length sheepskin coat & can’t bare anything lighter. Until today!
I also used my leather bag I bought from Brussels, I got it from a flea market & they were asking 25euro for it – I haggled the poor guy down to 18euro (much to Matt’s embarrassment!) I love a good haggle!
There was still some patches of ice on the ground but the sun was shining! I needed to clear out my wardrobe, so having the day off work, I started sorting some of my wardrobe. One of my friends Jane has set up a little boutique called *Green Brick* where you can bring in Vintage, designer & pre-loved items to sell in the shop. They then pop the items into their lovely boutique & if it sells then you get half the marked price & if it doesn’t you get the item back! So you don’t have anything to loose, if you can’t be bothered with ebay & think the items are worth a little bubble money, the Green Brick is a great idea.
It was Matt’s Birthday yesterday & of course, it was Cotton Tail Club too, so we combined the two happenings & invited friends down to Above Audio for some half price cocktails. I got him another Tiki Mug for his collection
Sadie baked some glittery cupcakes & gave the birthday boy a little Tin Tin badge which was pinned straight on to his lapel!
During the day we went out for lunch with his Mum & Grandma, who drove down to take us out, which was really nice.
Such a nice day & evening which was topped off by finding this amazing lamp!!
I think it will divide opinion but I absolutely love it! I will try & do a step by step on it’s restoration in the next few weeks. It seems easy but we shall see!
Love VV xxx
