Yesterday evening was spent at Cie’s testing out 1930′s finger waves, drinking pink fizz and generally using any excuse for a good old gossip. You can read her account of the beautiful hosting she did and the see the pictures here. I think with my bob (ish) length hair, I can go for a typically 1930′s do with reasonably little problem! I plan, just for your information, to french plait my hair in the morning to make it wavy throughout, then put finger waves into the front – it worked OK on our first ever attempt yesterday, so I am quite optimistic!

Today was a long day, one of those ones that seem to stretch out into the distance and take one hell of a lot of effort to get through. That said, we did achieve something – I bought a lovely vintage Bakelite and leather(ish) purse from a Charity shop, ironed by Christian Lacroix dress (photo’s to follow) and found a dining table and chairs for the new flat.

The chair and the table were quite a bargain – the chairs have a lovely art nouveau-esque style and the table is delightfully solid and antique looking. To be honest, even though my father restores furniture, I am not sure of the era – but for £99 they were quite a bargain!

6 chairs (tw with arms) and the big table (middle leaf removed so it fits in the flat!)
