A Sweet Little Gift

At last my Internship is over. During this time I had been very busy and unfortunately unable to make any posts. However, I had such a wonderful experience, learnt a great deal of information that I will value for the duration of my career and developed a real soft spot for my students. I am missing them quite a lot and have lost any doubts I had in pursuing such a profession.

Whilst on my Internship I received a very lovely wrapped parcel in the mail with a sweet little note. Dolly darl Catherine from Sewing the 60s held a Beatles related giveaway, and I had been lucky enough to win. In the parcel were three greeting cards and three stickers of The Beatles albums "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "Abbey Road" and "Let It Be", which also came with a badge. She also popped a lovely scarf in there as a surprise which I am very excited to wear and is most certainly a lovely addition to my growing collection of scarves.

It was something very pleasant to be surprised with coming home after a long and busy day.
You can see Catherine's blog here - definitely have a visit if you have not already!

Get Back To Where You Once Belonged

As I mentioned in my last post I am now currently once again residing at my old family home. I thought I might show you just a couple of pictures of what my living space and wardrobe is looking like at the moment. It has been hard trying to squeeze an entire unit back into a tiny room!

The walls are still covered in Beatles posters from my teen years as you can see in the reflection!

Vintage mirror, lamp and planter that I didn't have space for back in the unit. The little wooden jar was carved by a family friend from one of the trees in my Grandfather's hometown.

It was a nightmare trying to fit my clothes (and shoes) in here.
I'm not game enough to show you wardrobe number two!

Also here is the latest addition to my vintage collection: a beautiful 60's mini dress in beautiful condition. It was a real steal for only $8.00. 

On Tuesday my Internship commences. I won't be around these parts for a while. Hopefully all goes well and I can get back to the blogging world again soon!
