First of all, I found this scarf of my Mum's from the '70s. The print jumped out at me, it's exactly the kind of thing I go for!! It smells musty and despite a good wash, I've not fully for rid of the smell yet, so I've shoved it in with a box of bath bombs and soap from Lush in the hope that that will do the trick!
The other "thing" I found was a gorgeous and practical bag that belonged to my maternal Grandma. I am guessing it's probably from the '70s as well and I suspect it was used as a beach bag (let's just say I found a load of sand inside it!). I'll use it for the same I think, it has that "beach bag" feel to it. Plus, it's a good size and has a smaller front pocket for all those small beach items (suncream, lip balm etc..). What do you think? Stripes are always in!
