P E T E R P A N .



Apologies in advance for going missing for nearly a week. Things here are moving so quickly and I feel like I'm finally getting on top of my work, amongst juggling new projects, ideas and travel plans. This could be because I've recently hired a new assistant. Her name is Hayley and she's an incredibly hard worker and extremely efficient, so it's becoming easier to manage the store and keep up with everything. I am flat out teaching her the ropes so hopefully she can manage the store when I go on a buying trip to the US in the next few months.

I also just escaped for a little holiday in Sydney over the weekend and have come back feeling refreshed and inspired to move even faster. Upon my return I was so happy to see one of my little DIY ideas had finally been finished. Like every other girl, I've always been in love with peter pan collars but they're so hard to find, so I thought why not make them yourself? I've wanted to make these for so long and I couldn't be happier with how they've turned out. Here is a sneak peek of the adorable vintage knits I have coming for the store tomorrow afternoon, customized with vintage lace, crochet and doily peter pan collars. Some even have a cute doily front pocket finished off with a little vintage button! All one off designs so no two are ever the same, which after all is what makes vintage so beautifully special. I hope you love :)

  23. What I have been needing for winter. I've been trying for the perfect knit for ages now that will legitly keep me warm instead of the knits with massive holes only for the sake of looking good and freezing in the cold.

    Love your blog, you're one of my favourite bloggers :)
