Walking in a Winter Wonderland...

Winter 1947?

haha- I'm looking at the camera- be proud!
Well I never, we had quite a little snow blizzard today- all very fine and dandy, but we were unable to reach our destination- A vintage fair. Oh, fiddle sticks. I hate to think what I’ve missed, some real goodies, I bet! Ah well, better safe than sorry.  We only got as far as the outskirts of town before we encountered rather hefty queues up the hill. This certainly was a no no, so our mission was abandoned. It wasn’t all doom and gloom though and apart from missing the Vintage fair,  I did manage to have fun walking round town, picking up supplies with ma, for our rather large festive family (The sister and her fella came thankfully back yesterday for Chrimbo!).

about 6 inches deep....
Everything looked so lovely, enhanced by the Georgian architecture no doubt. Snow + a Georgian town = pure Christmas card merriment and one happy bunny (or Tups!)
I togged up in a thick sheepskin, which is so unbelievably warm, so Little Jack Frost did very little nipping at anything today- not even my nose, which must be a first! I have a longer beaver-lamb coat too, I think I would be positively roasting in that one. So I certainly recommend sheepskin for warmth, folks!
1940’s sheepskin coat,
1940’s Christies hat,
1940’s vintage pattern plaid skirt.
Vintage orange cable knitted Jumper,
1940’s/50’s and the prettiest Duggie wool scarf,
1940’s vintage knitted gloves,
Morland zipper boots.

Keep warm and toastie, all.
Cheerio Tups x


  1. My you needed those boots, that snow is very deep! I ventured to the hairdressers in flat pumps, how I regretted it when I came out 90 minutes later into a blizzard!

  2. I've been living in my wellies these past few weeks, but they're not very vintage sadly! I need some of those vintage galoshes methinks x

  3. Do you know what? When I saw the top pic - i thought.. "Oooh.. Tups REALLY looks like her Granny", thats how convinced I was of the look! Awesome!

  4. What fantastic photos - I really love your sheepskin coat :)

  5. Brill photos and outfit Tups!

  6. Brill outfit; so warm AND stylish. I never seem to match my dress whims with the weather- I'm all about the 60s/early 70s at the moment, with sweeping (aka wet, ice crusted and salt stained) hems and flare cuffs. I'm a silly lady and can hear my old gran berating me as I step out of the door ha ha!

  7. I wish I looked like my grans, but hay ho, can’t be helped! Thanks for all the comments- cheered me up no end- feel rather rotten at the mo! Ta Ta Tups x

  8. I am in love with your hat!
    The outfit really suits you, miss!

  9. Fantastic! Were your legs bare or did you wear some sort of stocking?

  10. Thanks… and in answer, I was indeed wearing stockings.. oh, and big pink warm 1940's bloomers! Still extremely snowy and chilly here, but now I’m wearing slacks!


Ta very much for your messages folks!
