Vintage Vintage Vintage

Oh how I love vintage! And what better place to go than the Love Vintage Fair on at Hordern Pavillion this weekend.

Opening night was Friday night and I went with a friend Kassandra and her sister - "Your Only Blackswan".

It was a blast! There are wonderfully beautiful dresses as well as jewellery to die for. I also spotted some lovely Barsony's but I was good and didn't buy any. There was a pink can can and a hawaiian lady both of which I have (this is the problem now - we have so many lamps now, that when we find one at a fair we already own the same piece).

I was a good girl, and made only one purchase a very cute little black glomesh card holder. And the best part. It only cost me $15!!!

On another note, I have been a very bad girl, and have two more lamps, with a third on the way :o
They were all gorgeous, and we couldnt resist any of them.

This lamp is an FL48 in a rarely seen blue colour with the matching shade. It is in suberb condition, and we replaced the earrings with a reproduction set. I usually sell these earrings on Ebay, but waiting on the next shipment of them to arrive. Let you know when they are here!

Pics of the other two to come soon. We are still cleaning the other one we have, and when we receive the third (hopefully within a week) will post up some more photos! This really is a bad bad addiction! At least me and Paul are both inflicted with this sickness otherwise I am sure it would be the topic of many fights!

Alannah has also been a little rascal lately, oh so cheeky and naughty! I think she has realised she got away with a lot more when she was sick the other week, so now has this little whimper when she wants something, and just points and nods her head when you point to your cup of tea, or the pen your writing with. She is also going through a stage now where she hates bibs, and if you put one on her, she will rip it right off!! Think it's time for us to put our foot down now, we don't want her ruling the house now at 13 months, imagine what she's be like at 24 months???? (Scary).

Alannah and I have both been sick these last few days, Alannah since the weekend, and me since Monday. I left work early yesterday and home today - so just resting up!! Going a bit bonkers though been at home all sick, and with Alannah sick as well, we cant really go anywhere.
At least we managed to make the most of the sunshine last week, we went up to Terrigal and had a nice walk on the beach. We went up there to pick up a Tessa coffee table we brought, and at the same place the guy was selling a few other bits, and we scored a Junghans starburst clock!!
We also have a couple of leads on some new lamps :) so keep an eye out, will hopefully have a new lamp or two in the next week to show off :) ... Very Exciting!!!!

She adores the camera!!!

What a great day for the beach!

Up Up and Away... She's Walking!!!

Well, Alannah is now 13 months old, and walking everywhere. She started to "Walk" the night before her birthday, it was 6 steps, a couple of days later it was 13 steps, and now she's off!!! Trying to run everywhere, opening all the drawers, she has learnt how to climb on the lounge, and then thinks it funny to look over the edge which makes me want to run right over and scoop her up so she doesnt fall. It actually feels like a break when I go to work, I can sit down all day without running around after her! Is that bad???

When Alannah was about three months old she got diagnosed with a cows milk protein allergy, and has been on a synthetic formula, and then soy milk, so the last couple of weeks we have tried to reintroduce full cream milk back to her, but she got excessively sooky and clingy, so we've moved onto fresh Soy milk to substitute her soy formula. And then I think we'll try reintroducing it again in a couple of months (hoping she grows out of this).

We've also been doing "Backyard renovations" at the moment prepping for the new garage and granny flat. The plan was to level out our back yard, but once the tractors started they got bogged because although we had two days of sunshine the ground was just too too wet!! We couldnt resist getting a photo of Alannah on the big tractors. Hoping now for one week without rain... Fingers Crossed we wont be waiting too long...

Finally climbing up on the couch to steal mum's phone!!

Finally fits in the swing seat!

Lucky Girl... Dad brought her some flowers for her birthday!

I love my books!!

Had to put her on the tractor!! She loved it up there!!

We've run out of room again! :-(
