A Busy Day....
Peter went back to preschool today after a two week Easter break. He was totaly excited and really anxious to get back....'Mum, quick we have to go.....I dont want my friends to forget about me!'
So after dropping him off, Neo and I headed to our local shops - first to the postoffice then to the dry cleaners and then to the barber, Mr Candorro for a haircut.
Love this little Italian barber, he cuts hair with such skill and flair and has been at his shop since 1973, the decor hasnt changed since then....look at the kiddies chair and brown paisley wallpaper. I asked him if I can take some photos. 'Yes, yes Signiora '
I love this old picture he had on the wall. It was set in the late 50's....look how busy the barber shop was , six barbers working full time grooming men, guess with all the trendy hair salons around you dont see the barbers so busy anymore, business is slow these days he tells me...each time a house is sold in the area, I lose another client, they are all getting on growing old...passing away. Makes you think huh? Anyway here is Neo with his new manly haircut.
Walking home we popped into the Old wares shop. I bought a bunch of Australian Home Journals....some great vintage images and patterns! The ads are so funny!
This vintage craft book is fun too! a bargain 50cents!
The mailman delivered some goodies. I got my notecards from Regina's swap....some great cards from some talented ladies!
Here are the cards I sent (you can click on picture to see the detail)
