Hello again...!

I'm so sorry dear all if I haven't posted on my blog for so long.  i have been busy building up my photography business. I have taken photos of a lovely young woman during her pregnancy and then of her absolutely gorgeous little girl, born on the same day as me, how special!! I have photographed 3 sweet little siblings, photos on my blog soon.  I have done some work for a kids' clothes label Flossy & Tosh, the prettiest dresses around i'd say, and once they have given me permission to, i would like to put some of these photos on my blog too!  You can also check the Redcurrent website (www.redcurrent.co.nz), the big photos at the top of each category are mine!! 
but in the meantime, i have not been fair to my friends on my blog.  I still read you all, even if I haven't had time to write any comments on your lovely blogs. 
please come and visit me at fotographiebyflorence.blogspot.com.  Below are some of the photos i have taken, i hope they will make you want to visit my photo blog...

fashion at my house today!

today i had two lovely girls at my place
and both of them looked just fabulous.
one was zoe
she was wearing my favourite hat (it is hers!)
and a matching wine coloured top
she looked stunning.
the other was my little lulu
she had a pale yellow hand knitted vintage dress on
and a hot pink hand knitted vintage hat
both from thrift shops
don't they look gorgeous?

Treasured finds of the week

just the other day i was complaining about the lack of 
interesting things in our local opshops.
the opshopping gods must have heard me, because on saturday
i went opshopping, only to a couple of shops,
and i was very lucky to find a couple of things
i am delighted it.
then, the same day, my sister in law
dropped by with a boot full of goodies
and i could add to my collection of 
all things vintage, amongst others 
a beautiful crochet blanket with a twist,
and some bbq plates
i was getting worried that was it,
there was never going to be much vintage stuff around
and all i could do to boost my vintage happiness level
was to go on to sophies' flea market finds (here)
and look at others' finds, which are generally amazing.  
there's still hope!
have a wonderful week

my favourite find - an old aqua typewritter, my first ever (and it works)
i love heidi - found this gorgeous storybook and an old book+record
a sweet painting
another mirror for my collection (actually found by my mother in law wendy
those gorgeous bbq plates, must use them on our dinner table one night
my favourite crochet blanket so far, with black all around, thank you megan!

Treasured finds

what does one have to do around here to find some good stuff in opshops?!!  i haven't found anything really exciting in ages, so i was very much looking forward to our trip to wellington.  we stayed with friends in an area that has (only!!) 5 opshops in a little stetch of road.  i was feeling quite positive when i packed all the kids in the car, and off we went opshopping.  but.  nothing.  very sad.  it's only one hour before we left wellington that we were told where the good opshops are...  So, we will be back wellington!  however, on our way home, we found a lovely retro second hand shop, actually they had everything there that i want in my house... so we spent a bit of money.  nicholas spent the most with the coolest retro petrol can.  i found the loveliest little pixie books for Lulu.  i couldn't resist the little pale pink school chair, and that little bambi was begging me to take it home, as for the retro orange bread bin i had been looking for one just like that for ages so i didn't mind too much the price i had pay for it (well, a little bit, but still it looks nice in my house).  the problem is that i have come home wanting to opshop even more, there are some things i must find!! in the meantime, i admire the treasures found this week by other players at her library adventures's flea market finds (here).  have a look, there's some great stuff there.  xx
