Random weekend pictures.


This weekend I went to my Aunts house and attempted to make bon bons and gingerbread houses. After that adventure she opened up her storage trunk and gave me all sorts of vintage goodies. She is the person who made me want to get into vintage in the first place so as you can imagine she has the best of the best. Most is summer dresses, but the suit above is one of the pretty winter things I couldn't wait to wear. Thank you Auntie!

Here is my adorable new cousin Dottie, and my failed attempt at a gingerbread house. As you can see by Dottie's expression, she is wondering why I suck so much at putting frosting on a graham cracker.

Here are my other cousins Grace and Pearl, who are both silly as little girls get. Grace got into the trunk too and fell in love with this pink 50s prom dress. I think Pearl was being a Walrus...
I have another cousin, but she would not let me take her picture! I guess I was the same way when I was that age though.

Here are a couple pictures readers sent in on how they kept warm last weekend, don't they look cute! On the left is one of my best customers, Hana (she needs to start a blog I think), and on the right is Peldyn of Style on a shoestring

Well thats all folks, I'll be doing regular postings this week except for on Christmas, can you believe it's only five days away?
