Op Shop Booty and BOOTS..

It's finally me!
Finding  a space in the day to do  a post!
Well Hello there new friend!

It's got one of these hair blow wavers (?) inside.. which I am not going to keep... $6 which is actually quite steep in my cheap skate view.. but I had to have it...
They make terrific handbags


And I had to get it because it is my other one's long lost sister.
We all know one is never enough.
One day I might get a real job and these might be my BRIEF CASES because they are perfect A4 size.


The Same but Different.
A bit like my all time favourite boots.
(complete with baby chunder)

Speaking of BOOTS.. I got these off trademe. They're CAMPERS as well. I find it very hard to wear uncomfy shoes these days.  One of the only things that we don't always buy at an oppie! (No I'm not being paid to advertise for them!)
Happy Days..

By the way, in my last post... the pram photos .. those are my first 4 kids.. about 2 1/2 years ago. the baby in the pink is Iris, not Arlo!
This is Arlo as he appeared yesterday. 3 months..
Bloody cute, if I may say so myself.

Oh madness sheer, sheer madness those bags/cases are making me weep.....my favourite colours green and orange with retro flowers. Oh what I do to find one/have one.

Arlo's green overalls are delicious too.

By the way what wrap are you flashing there? I've got a BBSlen paprika coming to me next week, going to give the woven wrap a proper go, so hopefully I have it down pat for the hopes of number three. Mind you it might be a tall ask, trying women's with and 18month old but she is used to being in other carriers at times, just not a lot these days.

Oh he is so cute, and I love him in green it makes his eyes look big and dark. What colour are they? As for the hair dryer cases, they are spectacular. How cool to find one and then find the missing sister!!

I had no idea there was a hair dryer hiding in that fabulous bag! And you have TWO! Great colours.
Lovely to see you doing your Blue Steel model look in the first pic! And Arlo is such a cutie pie.
Oh I remember those days of having baby sick on some item of clothing at all times... Doesn't detract from the great boots though! xxxx

That's ace, glad I'm not the only vintage hairdryer whore in the Blogworld! Your's are super groovy!
Liking Arlo's cord dungarees, mind you I can't imagine you having a child that wasn't as fabulously dressed as you! x

Oooh those hairdryer bags are FABULARSE!!! I absolutely love them - and would use them as handbags! How marvellous to have the two sisters!

Oh sorry for confusing your kids - I thought it was awesome that you had Arlo in hot pink! He's growing so fast and yes, he is absolutely GOOORGEOUS!
