A bit of a paper-themed post today. First let me show you the amazing vintage frock my dear friend Jem sent in her brown paper parcel yesterday. Although I'm not a massive 1980's fan the futuristic styling of this beauty really appealed. Jon declared "Phwoar, Blakes's Seven" whereas I reckoned it was more in the style of Robert Palmer's backing band in his "Addicted To Love" video. Either way, I love it! Thanks, my darling! Perfect for adding an injection of much-needed rock class next time I'm down the biker's pub with the girls.

As usual it was wrapped to perfection.
Also included was some fabulous monochrome fabric which I've got in mind for a 1960's style shift dress, vintage buttons, ribbon and net and a groovy dogtooth checked scarf.
Whilst we were clearing out the guest bedroom in readiness for decorating we unearthed some of Jon's rock star past. He's the pouting beauty on the far right. Gorgeous! No wonder he was a Just Seventeen pin-up of the Fortnight on more than one occasion.
Finally , now it's in place I couldn't wait to show off our Cole and Son hand-blocked wallpaper I scored off eBay ages ago. It retails at around £85 a roll but I got two for £7 including postage. Now that's what I call a bargain.
I've got an early start in the pub this evening, we're meeting at 7pm and I haven't even washed my hair yet.
Must dash, have a great night whatever you're planning. xxx
