14 7 08

Yesterday I got two of the greatest things ever! The first one was this 1950’s Catalina Bathing Suit from eBay. (I know what you are thinking about second hand swimming costumes, but I plan to sew an extra piece of material onto the inside for obvious hygiene reasons!) It really is the best thing I have ever seen:



I love the cute umbrella print and the bow at the back!

The second thing I got was a fantastic telephone from the 30’s or 40’s (I am not too sure but have just compared it to images of similar phones from those eras) given to me by a friend. He didn’t want it anymore because apparently it makes you sound like a Dalek at the receiving end, but until I can afford to get it fixed I’m quite happy for it to sit prettily on my bedside table.


Today I am listening to: Muddy Waters

How utterly gorgeous!
That swimsuit is just to die for, really you've got yourself a keeper there. And the phone, I almost bought myself one in red the other day. We don't use a land line, just mobiles but I wanted it none the less because they are just so adorable.
Lovely finds indeed.

That bathing suit is lovely! I love the cut of older bathing suits, so much more sophisticated!

The shop I was banging on about on my blog was in Kenilworth which is a town not too far from Coventry. The 'town' is basically just restaurants and charity shops and there are old people a plenty so there's quite often goodies to be found!
