  1. Hello, I am going to become a nurse when I grow up. I love adventure! Heights, flips and jumping off of things especially. I adore fashion especially the 1940's. I LOVE your seamed stockings tutorial and your blog :) :)

  2. Hello! I love the hats you wear. I collect ball jointed dolls and have been making little hats for them and I found you when I was looking for inspiration. Love your blog, keep up the good work!

  3. Arrr did I be Hearing the word Pirates? I do be loving me a bit of piratey romance arrr,and vintage treasures and I do be a lover of blogs and people I meet on blogs yes indeed I do.
    (ok just so you know I did a pirate post last week lol so not all totally crazy).

  4. Hi there! I spent the weekend pickling things and making chutney with beetroot in it, and I haven't decided yet what to do when I grow up (I should have decided by now really. That's not very interesting but there you go!!!

  5. Hi! I recently built a chest of drawers, but I haven't painted them yet. They're for my socks, stockings and PJs, which is boring unless you know how much I love socks-and-PJs on the sofa with a glass of wine and a movie!

  6. Hey! You know me from long ago, I'm Rosie and my vice is sew, sew and sew, in addition to paint clothes, crochet, knitting, love old movies and life. I like the fashion of the 50s and 60s, but lately I'm in love with the 40s too ... and as all us little time to do what I like, so this is my daily war ... time. I have a small collection of 175 classic films (currently) and I want to sew me an outfit for each ... Yes, I will ... I'm raving a bit ... because for every outfit that I get to sew, there are a few new movies in my collection, so those two movies you draw will be very loved in my home, and if I win ... I promise to sew an outfit for each one of them!

  7. I love vintage buttons! Something about me..hmm...I have a thing for vintage slips and lounge gowns..I'm eying some on etsy now.. sooo gorgeous!! :)

  8. Im a 26 year old dress lover, who loves to sew my own creations. I live in Norway, and even if it´s freeeezing here during fall, winter and spring, dresses is what i wear. I like to make the world e prettier place, and what is more beautiful then the fashion of 40s, 50s and early 60s?
    I also bake, cook and watch old movies. Latest movie was To catch a thief, with Grace Kelly and Gary Grant.
    Thats some about me! ;)
