Dinky Sweetness

The white stuff has all gone now.
It went overnight.

Along with the snowman …
… and the snow cat.

All that was left was a hat and a carrot.
Lying abandoned on the grass.

A bit sad really.


The Lincoln vintage fair was cancelled.
That was sad too.

We had planned to go.
So, we called in on my regular vintage lady J.
J has a proper rummagy room.
Bursting to the rafters.
Of all sorts of vintage goodness.

Picked up some vintage linen maps …

Glorious colours.

 Fabulous fonts.

… and then drooled over, squealed, clapped hands and eventually, had to have …

… these exquisite little baby doll crocheted shoes …

Two pairs of dinky sweetness.

One and a half inches of sheer cuteness.

… with the teeniest, tiniest little buttons I have ever seen.

The booties were still plumped with tissue paper.
In a tatty blue box.

Even His Nibs loves them.

I will frame them  in a box with a few words ...
When I have stopped drooling …..



  1. Beautiful map fabric, and those crocheted baby booties are darling!!! Have a lovely day! xo Heather

  2. Every cloud has a silver lining.... They are gorgeous! X

  3. Oh I LOVE old maps! What a shame about the vintage fair but at least you found some things to satisfy the vintage cravings. The bootees will look so sweet in a box as you suggest! Will look forward to seeing them.

  4. Oh they are so sweet I would keep drooling over them as well.Love Jill xx

  5. Such sweet, sweet treasures you have unearthed. I love your blog!

  7. Oh my word! Your blog is gorgeous. Love all the vintage things ; )
    Thanks for your comment over at my spot. I couldn't reply to you because it came up as 'no reply'

  8. Oh my goodness, those wee little booties are too immensely darling for words (the ones with the pink buttons are my very favourites). They are so sweet, precious and "awwww" inducing. Thank you very much for sharing such a darling sight with us.

    ♥ Jessica
