Crinoline Robot's Vintage Week
I feel like rewarding myself with a treat, and popped a couple of things into my Etsy basket, but the prices really made me wince. The items weren't that expensive, but shipping doubled the cost. I emptied my basket again and checked when Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair would be in Bath next. The fourth of February, it turns out. Looks like I'll be treating myself then instead.
I have been putting more effort in with my clothes for the past couple of weeks. Probably I was distracting myself from a stressful situation, but I've worn a wider selection of my jewellery than I did late last year, including my Coro diamante earrings and brooch set. The fake brooch got an outing too; the earrings are clumsy but the brooch is okay, and it looks really good with my navy cardigan and navy/brown pleated tartan skirt.
We finally got rid of our original 1950s fridge - in the end, we had to pay the council to collect it and junk it. I'm a little sad about that because I'm sure in a year I'll meet someone who would have wanted it and loved it, but we really do need the space for a cabinet to hold our plates and pottery. Mr Robot has been watching Antiques Hunt on telly and is keen to see what bargains we can find at auction, so I'm hoping we can get a nice cabinet for not too much money.
And Further Back In Time For Dinner was ace. I'll probably write up the first two episodes as one post. If the second one is as good as the first, it's something to look forward to. Did you watch it?
