Elf's Day Off from the Workshop

Father Christmas was very kind to give this little elf a day off from the workshop.  I used my down time to take a trip to Cardiff indoor flea market, that was filled with antiques, vintage, shabby chic, junk - and Christmas displays.  I took advantage of the backdrop to make the most of my elf-like attire.  I'm probably a little too tall to be an elf, but I like being helpful, cheerful and wrapping presents, so I fit the job description.

Laura Ashley pinafore dress from charity shop, Primark white polkadot tights, F&F boots from car boot sale, Accessorize beret, Papaya rollneck from car boot sale, Alternate Normality shoe clip worn as brooch.

The only thing I bought was a small Christmas gift, no goodies for myself on this visit.

It's a busy time of year, so this is a brief post.  Back to the workshop I go...

  3. I'm quite taken with your elf-like attire and agree with Suzanne that it is super cute! The shoe clip worn as a brooch is genius! The indoor flea market looks suspiciously like some of the stalls at the flea market we went today. But I did manage to find a couple of things for myself! xxx

  4. I hesitate to call people's outfits "cute" but in this instance- you really do look so cute! I love your elf style- and that pinafore is wonderful! This shop was certainly a great backdrop.

  6. You look so festive! Love the beret and pinafore. And I love using vintage shoe clips as brooches. It's always nice to repurpose vintage things to get more use out of them.

  8. You could be a tall elf. A Tolkien elf! (Much more elegant.)

    I'm an overgrown Hobbit, after all.
