I had a pretty good life before but it's improved no end since I started blogging. I've been inspired, educated, amused and charmed by some wonderful women around the world and, even better, been showered with gifts. Apparently I even saved hilarious young Perdita's life last night.

My postman called again this morning bearing a parcel from my darling Helga. Me and the postman are on good terms, I went out with him twenty years ago. He was a lovely bloke and a very stylishly dressed mod but at the end of the day he wanted marriage and kids, I wanted fun and frolics and I still haven't changed.
So what did the love of my life send me? This beautifully insane vintage maxi skirt for one thing. How cool is this green Vegas print?
A Kiwi fashion mag and some splendid rainbow braces.
Some vintage tea towels and a cute oven mit.
Our Helga's a bit of a witch, she must know there's a dinner party chez Vix on Saturday night and these will come in very handy.
There's also a fab new vintage dress, but you'll have to wait to see it as it's my Saturday night frock.
