Some Awards and Forgotten Photos

First off I would just like to thank Presley from Young Vintage Girl for passing on these three awards to me. I've done quite a few awards lately so I won't pass these along, but I just wanted to give a big thank you for these awards! I really appreciate it :)

Exams have been taking up most of my time lately. I wake up, I study, I go to bed. Not very exciting. However I was looking through the files on my computer last night and I noticed there are quite a few photos I planned on using for my blog but for one reason or another never did. I suspect this is common among bloggers. Since I have nothing better to post at the moment, here are some photos that never quite made it to the blog. 

 This one my friend took a looonnnggg time ago. 
 Aren't these bookends fabulous? They were given to me by my grandma who got them in the 1940's.
 This is from last fall. I love this 1940's (?) dress but it very fragile so I don't wear it very often anymore.
 I loved this outfit but was unable to get a decent picture of it. My friend said I looked like Minnie Mouse. I chose to take that as a compliment.
 Isn't it cute? This was the last knitting project I completed before the weather became too warm to knit. I love knitting stuffed animals. Too bad I don't know any young children to give them to... 
 Some forget-me-not's I dried and framed.
 This outfit is actually only from a few weeks ago but I forgot to post it. The skirt is made by me, the sweater is from Winners, and all the accessories are vintage. 
 A great hair day from a year ago. 
 This was my "uniform" when I waitressed the Victorian Teas at the Bowmanville museum last summer. Although it was really, really too warm for a summers day, I did LOVE that outfit!
 My very first time wearing Ruby Woo lipstick by MAC!
This is a cute little 1960s dress I picked up last year.

That's All.


  1. I love your Ikea fabric skirt! I made my little girl's bedroom curtains from that print, it's so cute.

  2. Your very Welcome, Your blog is fantastic you deserved these awards! :)

  3. Leftover pics can be interesting. I usually remove everything extra from my computer unless they are pics from parties or trips (for example), so I don't have almost any hidden stuff to show... You look cute in the 60's dress!

  4. I don't end up blogging everything I photograph, either! Sometimes it's good to have photos in reserve, right?

    I have to say, I love knitting stuffed animals, too, and I have exactly the same problem, so I just keep them for me!

  5. Love that picture of you in the black hat! Very glamorous!

  6. I have a ton of pic that I have never used but keep just in case I get inspiration to use them. You look so gorgeous in that picture your friend took of you!

  7. You're right, lots of photos forgotten in the archives is a great pity that they lost .... Great post! Love the dress especially "Minnie Mouse" So lovely!

  8. Your little knitted bunny is adorable! If you enjoy knitting stuffed animals, what about donating them to children's hospitals? When my baby was born, I received a precious gift of a hand knitted baby blanket and cap from a women's group at the hospital who knit items to give to babies/kids who need an extra little warm boost. I really cherish it!
