Vintage Thingy Thursday : tinnie time

All Aussies love to crack a tinnie! Especially me, and a couple of weeks ago (back when I actually had some money, ha ha) I ordered this gorgeous vintage tin from the Tinnie Girl. The other day I collected it from the post office where it had been patiently waiting for me…and hurrah! Such goodness!

A lovely vintage chocolate(?) tin, filled with two pieces of vintage material, vintage buttons, vintage thread and one of my fave things ever, embroidery floss (am I the only one addicted to the stuff…I keep buying it!). Of course the hard question is what to make with my new crafty stash??

If you’re looking for a gift for a crafty girl, check out the Tinnie Girl shop, and for more Vintage Thingys visit it’s new home:

Cats, girls and uniwigs

Further to my previous post, a quick trip to Etsy secured me a print of the aforementioned girl and  cat illustration, entitled “Through our Winter Window”, and also this delightful one:

The Precarious Uniwig by Marjorie Liucci.

Does anyone else ever get that feeling where you want to take out your eyeballs, wash them and put them back in your head?  All the lingering smoke around the place is making my eyelashes hurt.
