Vintage Vineyard, Take Your Pick!




Hi Gals, went to a Vintage fair this weekend in my neighbouring Lancashire, city Preston, thought I would share a few of my photos with you, from my visit, I picked up two sweet pins, a flag in tangerine and turquoise crystals for me to put on my wool navy beret and a gold pin with blue crystals, designed to look like musical notes for my friend and beauty blogger Lauren as a thank-you for all her hard work on our recent Dear Diary event. I also found a store which sold bespoke retro style pieces and was delighted to find this retro pop, juicy red perspex key pendant, embelished with diamante,as you can see gals I have magpie like tendencies!!!






Look at this decadent lemon curd lamp that I was drooling over, drat it was taken! The citrus yellow one nearby with the nipped in waist was very sweet, but just a little out of my price range!Look at all these glam gems where is a girl to start first? A frothy parasol, not quite the weather for it at the moment, or perhaps a golden draw string purse?I adored the cream shell bag with the gold letter V on it and the lepard purse, which is your favourite?

Look at these chic earrings and pins enough to make any girls heart skip a beat.

Just had to end, with this sweet vintage gal, dressed in one of this season hottest colours, pumpkin!What a doll! Sx

Hi, Sharon,
I enjoyed looking at all of your vintage glamour! My favorites are the glitzy earrings and pins! I always smile and say: I am your typical Texas girl. I love big hair, big earrings and bright red lipstick!! Thank you and Lauren for all the hard work you did to raise cancer awareness. Blessings to you! Vicki
