Miss E's Room - Full of DUSTy goodness!!

"Dust" you say - DUST? Down Under Street Team that is - but there is probably a fair bit of the sneezy dust kind too... Evie's Room has slowly been filling full of gorgeous things bought from the incredibly talented girls in the DUST team on Etsy.

There is a great supply of bows and head bands - The girl has crazy hair - mad scientist hair - so she needs a good variety, all hanging on the bow holder made my me- littlepoppett!!! You may be able to spot a fair few cute clips on there from Vanilla Pixie and also some lovely vintage Chenille items from Leahkl. Headband, brooch and a few little animals you may be able to spot in the other pics. Then of course there is the gorgeous wall decal - that I LOVE and so does Evie - from lovemaestore it is just too lovely! You may spot the 3 prints from ishandchi that look so fabulous together and the lovely little lady in the frame. Hanging from the hooks on the wall, on the left is a beautiful bright rainbow bag from rainbowrevolution - how could you keep it in the cupboard...had to put it on display!

For more DUSTy goodness and a great bargain, visit Etsy this weekend....we are having our huge DUST Christmas in July SALE! Both my shop's Evie Grace Vintage and Little Poppett, will be having 20% off and free shipping from Friday till Monday - come and check it out!

Thankyou Thursday!

Ok so I missed Wishlist Wednesday sooooo....... I thought I would show off this lovely dress made by Rach from PinkLizzy Sews. I saw a bigger version of this dress on her blog and fell in love. I love the vintage fabric and cute sash. I was looking for a dress for Evie's first birthday party and thought this was the perfect one. So Rach found a pattern and whipped it up (she is amazing). It is perfect and I cannot wait for Evie to wear it on her first birthday. Thanks so much Rach! Cant wait for my....uuuhhhum..I mean Evie's next dress from your lovely shop. Go and check out her gorgeous threads!

Ok well, My first proper post is going to be about the GORGEOUS print I bought for my sons room from penny of Pocket Carnival who is an amazing artist and also makes great clutches and little purses ...oh and totes as well! I call it my "feel better shop"- I always feel better when I buy something from her! I had so much fun framing this print. The colours are so soft and I loved the greeny/bluey shades of the trees. So I found some fabric that matched perfectly scanned it, fiddled around with it, printed it and cut it out! I love it. It looks so good in My sons room....he loves it too!

Hello, I'm Alissa
