Love me linoleum

Number one ... we have a winner for the 'rabbits' heart brooch and it's Owl vs. Dove. You can read her fashionable blog here. Now for this giveaway it's a nostalgia card pack! Just leave a comment here and you are in the running to win a pack of my cards, all upcycled from children's books and op-shop cards!

Win me ...



I have been helping to rip up the lino in a house that had one owner it's whole life. We have uncovered 60 years of 'underlay history'.

Underneath the carpet, rubber underlay, lino, and more lino we found old newspapers from the 50s. What a find! I have kept some of the best pages from the old Courier Mail and People Magazine to have framed and put on the wall. I also found two lovely old pin up girl playing cards. It's hard work, but quite fun reading the ridiculous old ads.





Nothing like painting your nails just before bedtime to spice up the bedroom capers!

How funny are those adds. Dear me, who would have thought lack of nail polish is the cause of such marital disharmony.

I LOVE your puppy cards - I actually bought one from you at the Twilight markets and I'm looking at it right now! It's so cute and all my friends love it to :)
I'd love to know what kiddies book they came from - I'd like to buy it!

So much to be said about 50's advertising. Love the men's briefs - what man would run in public in those?
