Vintage Inspired Calendar for June and Other Vintage Finds.

I am so loving this inspired & delightful calendar.

One of my lovely finds this last week was in fact this very chic 
vintage pattern & the pretty pink crocheted doily.
I took this photo before turning the page of the calendar : )

It was bit soggy here last week, to say the least, so I found myself
with a little more time inside than usual & since Rob was working
5 afternoons I had a lovely time sorting through my doily hatbox..
one I did a revamp on a little while ago

  some simple decoupage on the lid

only it wasn't long before my hatbox found itself commandeered & repurposed

I was delighted to accidently discover the relocated 
"Habit for Humanity" Op Shop in it's re-opening week. 
They have come in to town & are now just around the
corner from "Connections" our wonderful Hospice shop.
At H for H I found this really interesting afternoon tea cloth.
It has come up really nicely with a good soak.

I am always on the look out for pretty vintage cotton sheets
& thought that I might make some bunting out of the various
stripes & florals.
  I am sure that they would flutter very happily in the breeze
being well used to all that breeziness in a previous life.
I found the stripe on the chair this week.
& these pretties came as a pair : )
ah, but getting the washing dry is a wee bit of a challenge in the rain 
so out came our wooden clothes rack.
Of course Moja thinks it's a hut just for him.

a truly versatile & multi purpose apparatus
it has many uses indeed !

Much love Catherine X
