Loving my vintage granny chic coat!

Featured

Check out my latest charity shop find, I am seriously loving it! It only cost me a fiver and after some granny chic styling it was good to go. I was chuffed to bits cos I got to delve into my stash of buttons and threads and even use my cute applique ducks!

Sure it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve made it my own, I love it and I aint gonna see it on anyone else!

If you are lucky enough to have a granny still alive, get yourself into her wardrobe, like NOW!

Cute or what!

What do you reckon to this vintage picture, cute or what!

I found it whilst having a good old rummage around a charity shop. I had to have it coz it reminded me of my crazy chooks ‘n’ kids!

See chooks are only meant to have a little bit of corn in the after noon.

Well not in this gaff! it’s more like every time they see us, and if they can’t see us they peck on the door till we hand over the reddies!

Anyways, for under a tenner I bagged myself one sweet little picture for my home, and with just a little paint and distressing gave it a shabby-chic look that I love!

If you like vintage pictures take a look in your local charity/thrift shops and see what you can grab yourself!

Aside

Those of us who love a bit of vintage and retro spice in our homes, probably love stores like Cath Kidston, Orla Kiely, and Laura Ashley to name but a few.

That’s cool if you’ve got the purse for it, but in this economic climate many of us haven’t, and if that’s you,  I’ve got just the job!

Grab your coat and get on down to your local charity shops, boy can you bag yourself some great finds. Then you’ve got the likes of car boot sales and thrift markets. For these my top tip is wait till closing that’s when you grab the bargins they want to get rid of and you want to pocket!

The hottest thing with this kinda vintage thrift is,  it’s unlikey anyone else will have it, you can pat yourself on the back because it was cheap and you were eco- friendly! Best yet if the kids, ( or being honest me ), break it it didn’t cost the earth!

So here are just a few of my finds, I’ve gotta be honest I need to scale down!
