I finally managed to duck into an op-shop this week! The Bloke & i had done a quick grocery shop at a nearby town & he told me to have a quick look in the op-shop while he put the groceries in the car - glad he did.....i found this little vintage dress for $2.50. It doesn't have a brand or size on the label, but i'm guessing it's about a 000 & by the fabric used, i think it's late 60's to 70's (good old polyester!), it's also in fantastic condition.  My stash of vintage babywear is slowly growing. I also found a Pumpkin Patch skirt, a pretty little Seed tank top & a book for Amity & all i spent was $4.75 - got to love a that.
I hope all you mothers out there have had a lovely Mother's Day. I was very spoiled by my little family today, i got a sleep-in & two breakfasts in bed (Chas & Amity both wanted to give me something different), they gave me those awesome boots i really wanted, plus the goodies they purchased for me at the school mother's day stall (i love seeing what they choose for me & this year they chose the same thing!) & Chas surprised me with the loveliest handmade card that he managed to hide from me & his dad.........i love it so much & i'm going to treasure it forever! I had a quick visit from my mum & then we all went on a family bike ride (don't worry i didn't wear the new boots - but i was tempted, hehe), we ended up riding past a restaurant in town that had an all-you-can eat Mother's Day buffet on & on the spur of the moment The Bloke decided to have lunch there. Then after a massive pigout we rode to a park, let the kids have a play & then rode back home. After Scarlett's nap we jumped in the car for my favourite thing of all - a Sunday Drive! We headed for the hills & stopped way up in the middle of nowhere & all got for a walk & an explored. It was freeeeezing, but we loved it & are definitely going to head back there oneday to explore further. Then home again where Amity & i made a yummy choc-swirl cake together & after our massive lunch & my two breakfasts (i don't even usually eat breaky!) we just had toasted sandwiches for dinner. I had a fantastic day & felt so blessed with how my little family have looked after me today!
As always i have linked up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds.....go check it out.
Happy Mother's Day to all my mummy readers xxx

  2. Your day sounds so nice. My day went well too but with no gifts, by my request, and I even managed some sewing. You are such a bargain queen. Very cute dress. xo

  3. wow what a busy, fun Mothers Day you had. Please do treasure that card from Chas. Check out my mothers day blog on my Vintage, Retro... blog to see the card I made my Mum when I was about 6, she kept it forever ♥ --
