A lot of Saturday was spent in the car. I went to the Hamilton Home Show to see Sarah Richardson. She's my absolute favourite interior designer. (If you haven't seen any of her rooms, check her out. She is fabulous!) Unfortunately Hamilton is quite a distant away, so it took nearly 2 hours to get there.
Between a long car ride and dinner with my dad's side of the family (who tend to make snide comments about my vintage look) I decided to dress more casual than normal. I don't often wear jeans anymore but I decided to pair them with a grey vest and my latest sewing creation, a 1940's button up blouse. The picture was taken at the end of the day so unfortunately my hair and makeup wasn't as nice as earlier :(

The only other thing of note this week was that I received my giveaway prize from Porcelina's World. It was a lovely stationary set. I must say how much I loved the card she sent along with the gift. It was all so pretty!
One Last Thing...
As you may have noticed, I have added some pages along the top of my blog. I have created a page with links to neat vintage related websites I have come across (which I will hopefully be adding to), as well as a page with links to my accounts on various sites such as Ravelry (add me as a friend!).
The only page I am having issues with is the About Me page. I am totally stumped on what to write about myself. So I thought I would ask all of you what you would like to know. Leave me a comment asking me anything you would like to know (within reason...) and I will post my answers in the About Me section. It can be a serious or a silly question. Bonus points for creative questions!
Apologies again, but I am still having trouble with leaving comments. I'm not ignoring you all, I just can't comment on anything. It's driving me nuts!
Update: Ok after posting this, my computer decided I was allowed to comment again! Yay!!!
