LAST POST BEFORE CHRISTMAS..LITTLE PEEK AT MY PRESSIES..AND ASKING A QUESTION??













WELL I ACTUALLY WENT CHRISTMAS SHOPPING TODAY.....JUST A LITTLE BIT..AND BOUGHT SOME LOVELY FASHION BOOKS FOR MY MUM..ALL ON VINTAGE CLOTHING AND SHOES...PLUS A DELIGHTFUL PAIR OF VINTAGE INSPIRED EARRINGS..

GOT MY HUBBY A FANTASTIC SURFING BOOK..ALL ON VINTAGE 60'S SURFING ITEMS..FROM ADVERTISING TO SURFBOARDS..ETC..AS HE LOVES HIS SURF!!

I HAVE BEEN WRAPPING MOST OF THE STUFF THIS EVENING AND HAVE PLACED UNDER THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE DOWNSTAIRS..(ON TOP OF THE PROVERBIAL TABLE TENNIS TABLE!!)...BUT I HAVE ADDED A FEW BOWLS OF LOLLIES..TRADITIONAL COLOURED BON BONS..SOME TRADITIONAL DECORATIONS ETC...
AS EXPLAINED IN MY LAST POST..THIS DOWNSTAIRS AREA IS KIND OF LIKE "THE MEN'S AREA"..WHERE I HAVE MY PINK GIRLY CHRISTMASY THING HAPPENING UPSTAIRS IN THE KITCHEN!!

MY YOUNGER SON ALSO WENT OUT CHRISTMAS SHOPPING WITH HIS NANNY (MY MUM) TODAY...HE DROVE HER INTO THE CITY WHERE SHE BOUGHT SOME LOVELY THINGS...AS WELL AS MY SON BUYING THESE GORGEOUS CHIC HIGH HEELED SHOES FOR HIS GIRLFRIEND..!! VERY SNAZZY!!

I HAVE PROBABLY GONE A BIT "AWOL" RE THE COLOUR OF MY GIFT WRAPPING...RED/WHITE/SILVER WITH BLUE RIBBON?? A BIT OUTSIDE THE SQUARE..BUT I THINK IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD ...

SOO THIS WILL BE MY LAST POST FOR A LITTLE BIT...AS AM OFF TO JAPAN SOONER RATHER THAN LATER..
AND JUST WONDERING IF I SHOULD DO SOME POSTS FROM THERE?? WOULD YOU LADIES BE INTERESTED??

APART FROM THAT..HAVE BEEN FLAT OUT ON MY EBAY SITE...I HAVE BEEN TO THE POST OFFICE NOT ONCE..BUT THREE TIMES TODAY!! I AM QUITE LOOKING FORWARD TO MY EBAY BREAK!!

THE LAST THING I WANTED TO BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT IS HOW I JUST "LOVE" MY LOCAL "BLUE ILLUSIONS" SHOP...NOT ONLY ARE THE STAFF JUST THE BEST EVER..AND THEY GAVE ME THIS GORGEOUS FRENCH CHIC MUG AS A CHRISTMAS PRESSIE..AND YES!! IT IS PIN AND WITH A POODLE!! BUT I FIND THAT I JUST ADORE THEIR CLOTHES...

BEING 51 YO..I REALLY JUST LIKE TO WEAR SIMPLE LITTLE SUMMER DRESSES/SMOCK TYPE COMFY CLOTHING..
HAVE INCLUDED A FEW PHOTOS OF MY LATEST PURCHASES..WHICH I AM WEARING EVERY SECOND DAY!! WITH MY ONCE A WEEK SPRAY TAN...AND THESE NICE CLOTHES..I FEEL PRETTY GOOD!! LOL

HAVE A LOVELY SAFE HAPPY CHRISTMAS/NEW YEARS EVERYONE..
