Lindy Charm School For Girls

I'm so excited; the fabulous Lindy Charm School For Girls are bringing their vintage beauty workshop to sleepy Ballarat! The Ballarat workshop is on July 11th, for the princely sum of $60 we get three hours learning the methods of recreating hairstyles & makeup from the 1930's to 1950's; what bliss!

I'll be attending & it would be great to see lots of other rural vintage vixens too; I know you're out there.

Happy Vintage New Year!

I hope everyone had a safe & wonderful holiday period & you're all as ready for the new year as I am?

I've just started collecting items for a party I'm planning in a couple of year's time (me, an over planner...never!). It's for the 25th anniversary of my partner & I being together & I'm envisioning a Mad Hatter's Tea Party; because 'we're all mad here'.

I want to use as many vintage things for it as I can & to that end have chosen a basic style & begun looking for items to fit that. I'm very happy to have acquired this lovely tea set on Etsy

Isn't it gorgeous! If you happen to come across any of this type of iridescent black & cream porcelain in your travels, please let me know.
