Mid Century Love

I make no secret of my extreme love for all things Mid Century, and thought I would show you some recent delightful Op Shop finds. Over the next few weeks I am going to be working 6 days a week filling in while my boss is overseas, so will most likely be a bit absent from the blog and from crafting. Hopefully this gorgeous line up of finds will keep you warm until I return x

Sewing Patterns from the late 1960s through the 1970s. I just adore the Vogue Couturier Design by Belinda Bellville - on the back "Belinda Bellville creates beautiful clothes with a young, well-bred look"
