Happy Monday blog friends,

I am finding I have an extra spring in my step this morning. I have already been and walked 10 laps around the local football oval, dropped a dozen parcels at the post office and visited my local doctor for some prescription refills.....even being told I have tonsilitis didn't put a dampner on the day (antibiotics will fix that easily enough).....

I have not wanted to count down to our trip, but today, being less than a week away now, I find myself doing just that. I am laying out bits and pieces on the bed, mixing and matching scarves, hats, shoes etc with very carefully selected clothes, and I am buzzing all the while.

Simone and I made a bit of a goal to pack extremely light so that we can cram purchases in our luggage to bring straight home, even taking an extra duffle bag each to fill I have been very careful to pick the clothes that will come, and have even (don't laugh) taken photos of all the different ways I can mix and match these 10 items to make 15 different outfits.

I also decided that it had been way too long between bag purchases and headed to Melbourne on Friday in search of a new bag, big enough to be carry on and pop all my flight essentials in....

Here are all my little bits and bag, notebooks and pencils (love my notebooks), i-pad, coin purse (thanks Sal) and make up bag fresh out of the washing machine, oh and gorgeous chevron style luggage tags (thanks Mum)

It will be an exciting and busy week, a little anxious about leaving my 3 gorgeous boys behind, but my big boy (husband) is extremely capable and will have things running ship shape not doubt. I will spend the next few days doing all those little last minute things and will have a few sleepless nights (damm should have asked Doctor Steve for some sleeping pills) the end it will all be O.K.

So, now we hope you will all follow our adventure as we blog our way across the globe. We will be sharing our journey, our days at the fair, our purchases and our mishaps (hey there are bound to be more than a few) so do check in next Sunday 6th May for the beginning and keep checking daily for updates.

One more piece of news to share......stumbled across this ad in the Age on Saturday for The Vintage Shed which was great to see, and even better that the photo on the left was our Vintage Girl stall! Yay!!

Have a lovely week bloggers...

A bit of a cheesy title , but I used to love that song when lived in Ireland!! Anyway I have been bursting to tell our readers that we Vintage girls are packing our bags, leaving the men ( big and little ) in our life behind for 10 days and are heading for Brimfield Massachusetts to one of the biggest antique fairs in The States !!!

During our time away we will be searching for some of the most amazing, unique, weird and wonderful things to bring back with us. And the fun doesn't stop there. After we have shopped (and walked) our little hearts out in Brimfield, we are headed to New York for 48 hours of sightseeing and some retail therapy, staying at one of the coolest places - the 'W' times square!

We have spent many months planning our little adventure and we can't believe it is nearly here! I in particular have Bec to thank for most of the planning. She literally has taken care of every little detail while I have been a little under the weather. ( I am taking a little excess baggage with me, my husband and I are expecting our third child later on this year)

So there you have it- a trip of a life time, of course our little stall is and will be still packed to the brim with Vintage goodness, so stop by to see us at the Vintage Shed or are any of our blog followers/ readers also planning a trip to Brimfield?  We would love to hear from you if you are..

That's about all for now, back soon with some more details about our little adventure..  Have a great weekend Xx

Hello Blog friends,

Just a quick note today to share some exciting news....some of our wares made the Home Magazine in the Herald Sun newspaper  this week-

 Our wool and felt cross cushion (seen below on chair) and Simones gorgeous handmade paper bunting (sold in jars) hanging on the wall. We are so thrilled about this and just wanted to share the news with all our followers-Yay!

Apologies for the blurry pics- we have literally had to take a photo of the photo here. Perhaps we had better start making the cushions again-mmmmm

Have a lovely week-
Bec xx

Weekend Haul

Hello lovely readers! Hope you are enjoying good Friday wherever you might be, here in Melbourne we had a beautiful sunny day - perfect for hanging around the house and spending time with Family as I did..

Now yesterday was a different story, Bec and I spent pretty much all day at the Vintage Shed re arranging our stall and filling it up with our last weekends haul, when both managed to leave the kids at home and had some serious treasure hunting, one of our best ever expeditions I think - I could happily take home nearly everything we bought and keep forever.

My favourite ? It has to be the little pond yacht- its just so sweet I could see it sitting in a little boys room..

Bec and I will very soon be heading across the sea ( not by boat though!) We will soon be packing our bags and heading of on our biggest adventure yet .......

Happy Easter everyone!! Simone xx
