These photos by the wonderous Charles W. Cushman make me want summertime over here in good ole Blighty to hurry up and arrive properly!! He's a fantastic photographer if you ever get chance to look at some of his pictures do.

I got a fantastic new pale blue lucite purse... eeep and it's glittery. too excitable. Also got a bargain Shaheen playsuit on the way that i found on Etsy for a good bargain of £65, which is very good for vintage Shaheen, and i totally fell in love and had to have it. Will post pics when it arrives but for now..............
I got these little beauties from ebay last week for only £30!!! That makes each one only £6. Bargain hey. I adore bakelite, and am always on the lookout for bargains, especially the deep carved ones which usually cost a bomb!
Got my little beady eyes on these too:
Only on £24 at the moment with a day left and also:
Only £9.41 with a day left. Methinks i will be doing some sunday bidding, but they do usually go up a fair bit in the last minutes, but gotta hope for a bargain.
Oh i do love a bit of bakelite yummies.
Well hey there, seen as this is my first post i will introduce myself briefly.
This be me:
Well 'tis me and my grandad actually. Anyways my blog will just be about lots of the things i like and enjoy so if you stop by my little ole' blog ever then thanks in advance and i hope you enjoy. Im sure you will see many of my guilty little pleasures and things i dream of on a lazy sunday, including much bakelite, lucite, 40s and 50s vintage, along the way.
Basically i just love collecting stuff, houseware, clothes, records, accessories, books, allsorts really. Quite materialistic yes, but i love to be surrounded by all my little gems. I love vintage especially 40s and 50s but also some repro stuff is quite good too. So i guess i will begin my blogland journey now....
