Doing a Happy Dance!



Oh how I wanted to squeal and do a Happy Dance when I spotted this little beauty in the C/S today. Yes she's a bit grubby and bashed at the sides but lets look past that, the fabric print is a lovely design and she's beautiful on the inside and that's what counts!
Wanna take a peek?
Such vintage lovelies inside! Look at the sweet wooden spool and the tiny knitting needles and the threads and the suspenders!This tray lifts out too and there's more room underneath!I'll be taking her to Oxford with me tomorrow and she'll hopefully find a new home!
I'd love to keep her but I only have a tiny craft room with waaay too much stuff!
Thank you for all the sweet comments about Wilson, he has now decided blue is not for him and he's back to his old colour!
A warm welcome to new followers and commenters I am so thrilled you pop by and take a peek at my little blog!
Edited- I wrote this post on Wednesday but it wouldn't publish, so the dates are out now but Hey ho I have sorted Blogger now!
Have a lovely weekend gals!

OMG! I think I would have totally swooned if I'd found that beauty in my CS. What a totally exciting treasure! I know what you mean about parting with things, especially when you have had so much pleasure from finding it. Still, needs must I suppose - I hope you find a good home for it!

What a fab find - I'd struggle to part with that. Am sure it will find a new home very quickly.

Oh my word. I'm squealing with delight too. It's gorgeous. How can you give it up!

I squealed even more when I saw your hexie garland and the doggie garland. Utterly lovely.

I'm off to investigate your blog further and do some more squealing no doubt!

Have fun in Oxford and a lovely weekend,

The suitcase is perfection, I can imagine it filled with some beautiful yarns and vintage needles/patterns. How lovely that it still contained some wonderful vintage bits and pieces, you must have had a wonderful time sorting through it.
