Some women love Oroton, some must have a Burberry, or perhaps a Gucci. For me, it seems that gorgeous retro colours, a ridiculously low price and pvc lining sum up the kind of girl that I am. You might remember this bag that I found a few months back at Rummage for $5. The new bag trumped the mustard wonder big time at just $1 and I am so in love with all the colours that it completely inspired my recent blog makeover. It was scrunched up on a pile of shoes looking like a worn out dishrag. All it needed was a loving handwash and presto, even the pvc lining looks like new.
Things are starting to get very busy over here at Betsy's this holidays and I haven't even been able to photograph all my finds from last week yet. I did manage to iron the two fantastic teatowels that I found though. Now I just can't wait to get my sewing machine humming away turning these into a cushion or two.
Remember, I said I was working on my sewing space? I did manage to clear a table and make it all mine. Here is the proof. (The sewing machine is, however, still in the box as I am still finding it a trifle intimidating).
And so with all these holiday goings on I have decided to take a little bloggy hiatus. You know, to squeeze more of that real life stuff in. (There will be photos I promise). To fill in the gap, and also to celebrate my 100th post I have decided to have a giveaway. I was fortunate to be given not one, but two copies of this lovely book (by the same well meaning but slightly scatty relative I might add) so I would love to share it with one of you.
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I will count you in the draw. All entries will be included until next Sunday afternoon the 2nd of October but it is only open to Australian residents. Have a wonderful week and I will be back soon with more treasures to share. melx
