i'm taking a break

Just thought I would let you ladies know, rather than disappearing,
that I am taking a blogging break. After almost two years of daily postings,
I'm totally exhausted and take some time out to concentrate on other
creative endeavours, some baby-making and a kitten fostering.
If anyone needs me, you know where to find me.

PS I did not buy ANYTHING new during October as
the Buy Nothing New challenge I was participating in
required. *pats self on back*

For now xxx

the lula winner is...

... the divine Desiree from Pull Your Socks Up!

styled by my partner

I didn't know what to wear today so my other half dressed me.
I'm not sure about any of it, but hey, at least I didn't go naked.

another foster baby

This lil lady is about four weeks old. She came home last night
and will be staying about  a month. She is currently still on the
bottle. Pretty cute. We'll teach her to lap and get her onto solids,
litter train her, then she can go and live with her new family. :)

winner of the frankie giveaway is...

milingmai - yay!!

Congratulations and I will be in touch to grab your postal
address. I 'm confident you will love this issue more than
the one you recently purchased in London - and stay away
from baked goods! :) xxx

another vintage dress

Joan Holloway pen necklace - etsy
Cardy - thrifted
Vintage dress - thrifted

I bought this dress from Savers for $9.99.
It has a little 3/4 sleeve bolero jacket with it.
It's fully lined and a piece of heaven.
From the mid-'60s as a guess.

four boys and one girl

We went to the vet yesterday evening and we are all very
fat and heathy. The vet says four boys and one girl. Our
future owners are all very hapy and excited.

thoughtful, unexpected gift

I recieved the most beautiful, thoughtful gift recently
from a gorgeous lady who I have never met. It is amazing
how someone can know me so well through me following
her blog, and her mine. I have a small collection of vintage
porcelaine cats and the sexy Sarah from Mistfts Vintage
posted me SEVEN new friends. This is where they live.  
I am looking after amummy cat and kittens right now,
so maybethis is the universe giving kitties back to me. :)
Thank you so much, Sarah. I adore them and will think
of you every morning when I grab my car keys. xxx

to the vet tomorrow. I am so proud. :D
