Welcome, Spring!

Hello lovelies!

I trust you are all welcoming the beginning of the new season in the appropriate ways. Whether it be breaking out the dark hues and knee high socks for fall or enjoying the florals and pastels of Spring like me! 
What better way to enjoy the beginning of a new season than appreciating my two pastel 50s beaded sweaters? Anyone who knows me would know I am partial to a beaded sweater or two (or, erm... five) and here is the detail on my two current favourites;

I have my eye on a pastel yellow one at the moment from a wonderful Etsy seller, I can almost guarantee if I do get my hands on such a thing you will not see me out of it! Apart from increasing my collection of sweaters, my ever increasing 50s hair clip collection has seen a couple of new additions this week, with the introduction of two new pink bows, a set of salmon bows and the gorgeous pearly bubble one you can see pictured below. You'll notice that one of the clips is the matching brother to my favourite pink bow I posted last week, all the way from the other side of the globe!

And here's a picture of me enjoying both of those things!

I'm having a particularly cheery week as the health scare my cat experienced earlier in the  week has passed and she is back home with me as well as a few other things that seem to be going my way at the moment, I hope to spread these good vibes out to all of you! 

xoxo, Sarah Jane.

Sculpture Pin Curler

It's here! My Sculpture pin curler arrived in the post yesterday and after a quick test run I can tell I  am going to have no idea how to live without it. The curls are perfect and it's so easy to use, there's even two size settings for different sized curls! Being a naturally curly haired girl, I fight with pin curls but this removes any trouble I have an smooths the hair as I curl! I just adore it.
Will you just look at that packaging? I feel like a glamorous lass in her boudoir, when really I'm in the tiny bathroom in my cluttered apartment.
The set also comes with pair of gorgeous posters and a hand book for vintage styles and instructions. I've posted an example of these below. You can buy your own from!

Blogspot is my new home!

Hello, and welcome to my new blog.
I've decided to relocate my personal posts from tumblr to Blogspot for a billion difference reasons, but mostly because I love the Blogger interface and I'm feeling too old amongst some of the faces on tumblr these days!

To introduce myself, above is my face and my absolute favourite hair clip. I have quite a large collection of plastic hair clips from the 50s and 60s!
I intend to make this blog about my love of collecting and times past. I love to mix styles from different era's and get dressed up. I hope you enjoy reading my blog!
