Random Saturday Stuff...

Something I do often on this blog is show you lots of stuff. New stuff, stuff for the shop, my own stuff...the list goes on.

You never see who buys this stuff and where it ends up; I don't either, much, as it's mostly Sue who works at the shop.  So I'm going to show you where this fabulous yellow 40s dress has gone, and I think you'll agree that this dress has found a wonderful new home.


You may remember the dress from this post a few weeks ago.



This beautiful young lady does so much more for the dress than Astrid ever could. She's off to Edinburgh next week to study theatrical costume design, and this dress plus the hats she bought are going with her.



Too bad she's going away, because I would *love* to have someone like this model for me all the time!


Changing the topic completely now, I've had a lovely Saturday. A friend drove me around all morning, helping me with some errands and buying things for the shop.



I cooked all afternoon, whipping up an enormous triple batch of Froogs' Cornish pasties. As soon as my friends and family saw them here on the blog last time, they all said 'ooh-ooh-OOOOOHH...can I have one?' (Or in Sues case, 'WHERES MINE!!!'). A couple of glasses of champagne rounded off the evening nicely and I'm early-ish to bed, ready for more buying tomorrow morning and stock preparation tomorrow afternoon.
Have you had a good Saturday? What have you been up to?

Wow - she looks just beautiful in that frock - I would not have picked that colour to be so flattering to her hair colour but it is totally perfect! It must be nice to know that divine dress is going across the world with someone who really appreciates it. Hope your Sunday was as lovely as your Saturday, Kitty!

The new dress owner is gorgeous, it looks as though that dress was made just for her.

I smiled when I read Astrids name. *WEEEEEE* lol
I got a bike on Sat ... I was so tempted to name her Astrid!!! LOL
It's in the back of my head.. but I am still thinking.
Maybe:
Scarlett
Isadorra
Viola
Periwinkle

GOSH I have the hardest time NAMING THINGS!!

Your freind is model material and looks so lovely in that dress

The dress looks a million bucks on her, she's a very beautiful girl, I'm not surprised you'd want to rope her in as a permanent model for all your fabulous frockery.
Good luck to her in Edinburgh, I'm sure she'll love it there.
