Today’s job is to pack Christmas away, but before I do….here’s some of the vintage lovelies we received.
For him…some more Taunton Vale to add to the collection. His love of orange means our kitchen is filled with bright, zesty retro treasures….from 70s Tupperware storage, to 60s CathrineHolm enamel cookware, to funky orange Taunton Vale flower storage jars. We even have a (modern) orange Smeg fridge!
He also had a diary filled with images of 1950s pin-ups. I love this…I love the styling, the clothes, the fact they are not skinny!
For our little girl………a 70s Fisher Price Jack in the Box….a new addition to our vintage toy collection. I, in fact, had this when I was a child and I thought it was rather scary. Kitty however thinks it is hilarious!
For our little boy, a 70s game of Kerplunk. I love the box with the groovy kids faces…Herbie, so far just wants to play with the marbles!
They also received some hand knitted jumpers from their Great Nanna B. This cardi is so cute and a one off!
For me…..I received an array of vintage nighties, slips and a cute bed jacket. Ruffles, embroidery, lace, pretty pastels and bright limes…GORGEOUS! (I don’t quite look like the pin-up in Adam’s calender though, but I’m working on it!)
Lastly, I received this lovely folding 3 tier cake stand/table. I LOVE IT!!! I am going to put it in the bathroom with trinkets on each shelf. It is in such great condition with the pictures having no fading at all. I will also use it as a prop at the upcoming Vintage Wedding fairs.
With that…it is all over and my focus is now on wonderful spring trends and buying new stock. Watch this space!
Such lovely gifts. I particulary love your folding cake stand. Happy New Year. 🙂
Thanks! My lovely partner bought me 6 vintage slips/nighties….he went a little mad!!! Hurrah for partners who get the vintage thing!! Happy New Year to you too
