Today I went and visited Mum.
The day was filled with laughs as she shared stories from my childhood with me.
Some that I'm not able to blog about haha, but gosh I got a laugh when she was trying to explain to me what a massive baby I was.
Here are but a few of the quotes that were used to describe me.
"I remember one day, I brought you over to Nans house when you were maybe a month old, and the first thing she said was 'Moira, that babies ready for work.' "
Nan had a very strong Scottish accent, and when I hear her stories, I know EXACTLY how it would have been said. Gosh it makes me laugh.
Another thing she said was 'Moira, that baby could pull a sled up a mountain.'
Oh my gosh I was in stitches.
Anyway, as you know, whenever I visit Mum she always has a bag of goodies for me.
She's amazing. I don't know how she finds some of the things she does.
This is what she had for me this week.
This novelty cork screw is a bit naughty, but that's what makes most novelty items great. I'm sure I have no need to explain it.
My favorite Mum item, BEST hand held mirror I've ever seen.
Leather painted mini bag/purse
Italian leather and velvet 70's bag.
These two brand new vintage aprons. Flower power anything is my favorite thing in the world, so these had my toes twiddling.
And these bright green gloves with little green daisys around the wrist.
She also got me a velvet blazer that wouldn't photograph, and a pair of vintage tights.
We also went opshopping today. This is what I picked up.
I picked up this cute cookie jar :) (Sorry Deb)
This cord marching vest that I'm assuming was part of a costume, but it's awesome!
Mini love heart shaped hot water bottle that will be used for early morning travels to work.
And my favorite items. You all know I'm a massive tie dye fan, so when I saw these hand dyed cotton hoodies from the 90's, I couldn't leave them. I bought all 8 of them. They're SO GOOD!!!!!!! Made my day.
And that's all from me!
