A Photo A Day Challenge - Day One

Day One - your view today.

Today I am at home working on my PhD thesis. Frankie likes when I am home so she can 'help me', usually by sitting on my keyboard or rubbing on my screen but today it is raining and she was sitting in the window watching the cars going past. 

A Photo A Day Challenge

I am going to try Fat Mum Slim's challenge of taking a photo a day using the list above as inspiration. I have enjoyed seeing everyones January photos, so I have decided to take part in February. I will not post everyday, but do a post with a few photos every 3 or 4 days. Lets see how I go. Let me know if you are taking part too!

Glitter Dress

I received the most amazing dress from America a few weeks ago. It is a vintage glitter dress. It is a 50's style, but the stitching in it makes me believe it could be younger than that. It is amazing that all the glitter is still on! It looks perfect, I could not believe it, these dresses are so rare in perfect condition. Unfortunately it is a bit small for me, so I have listed it on the website (www.barnhouseantiques.com) so it can find its forever home. 

I have also listed two other beautiful dresses, my silly steamer died so I won't be listing anymore until my replacement comes in the mail.

Website Update

I have just added some pottery, china and glass to the website (www.barnhouseantiques.com)

Also, I promise that I will add some of the great vintage dresses that I have received in from America in the past few weeks. They are beautfiful and I wish they would fit me, actually one did so it is in my wardrobe now :), but the rest will be added to the website next week and I will blog about it when I do.

Naughty Lady Lamp

I picked up this nudie lamp at an op-shop recently and have it to my partner for his birthday (which is two days before Christmas). I believe it to be 1970s. It has two settings, one just having the back lit up (as above), and the second the lady spins around and changes colour. He loves her and so do I.
