Stallcart Offer....





Last week i was approached by Stallcart as they had noticed i had written a post on my own website which was created through them and made an amazing offer to me.. (well to my amazing readers)

This blog started off as a way to show my love of Vintage fashion and just a general space to be creative and it has snowballed into so much more than i had ever hoped for with the opening of my online shop i had tried etsy but didnt feel like it was working for me and i wanted something a little more me, and now it really is the start of something that i can see myself doing for a long time and im excited for all the possibilities. (my point is...if your wondering) is that if you have had a niggling in the back of your mind to either start selling clothes or your own crafts or generally anything but didnt know where or how to go about it, here is a great way to start!!!!

Stallcart are offering The Vintage Valley readers (only)!! a brand spanking new website without the setup fee..which is pretty darn tootin amazing!!!!
You can find the offer HERE and if you have any questions you can flick me an email...or email stallcart direct..

Stop thinking about it and give it a go... and if you do..send me an email with your link so i can check your site out!!!!

Bows and Birds



Photobucket
This week so far has been a blur of rainy days early mornings and lots of chocolate... i hate waking up when its freezing outside and having to stumble around in front of the heater to get ready plus the traffic is horrific!!!! So its indoor photos for a few days because my poor camera wont fair too well in the rain..im so jealous most of you are having hot weather!!! ahhh i miss it so....

I have been on the hunt for the perfect Bicycle (for ages now) and i cant find any vintage ones that have taken my fancy and are in rideable condition..so i think i may have to buy a new vintage inspired bike that i can get im get online i think ive found one.. it is so sweet..and a perfect cherry red colour!!!! What do u think??? im hoping i will have the skills to put a few of the pieces together once it arrives (like the front wheel)...have to put my tool belt on mayb...haha!!!! or...get a professional to do it...

















I have also bid on a brand new white Diana F+ woohoo...i mean its not like i dont need another one but im so in love with Lomo photography at the moment!!!! and plus...its white!!!



















This dress is one of my fav's in my closet though i try not to play favourites with my dresses they are all my favourites...(they get a little jealous sometimes) i found it for $2 squished in between some terrible faux fur jackets while thrifting..it has the most adorable bird pattern and is multi seasonal cool enough for summer and warm enough for Winter...

Im looking out the window right now and its pretty close to hail....(shudder) its so nice being inside with a steaming cup of Green Tea though....i think im going to read a bit of Dorian Grey and finish watching The Young Victoria...
