ALOHA!

Thank you for your kind words yesterday.
My man is alive and well, a bit sore (of course)
and frustrated that he's not allowed to use the
gym for six weeks but apart from that he's fine.

Four days ago I found this vintage matching
Hawaiian set on eBay.
I was too tired to stay up until 2 AM so I put in
a bid and hoped for the best, I was happy to find
out that I won it this morning.
£28 including shipping, not bad at all!
(324 kr/$46/€31)
Since I couldn't find anything for my mother in
law to buy me for my birthday I'm gonna ask her
for to pay for this set, it saves her a lot of money
and her baby boy gets a shirt.

It's a genuine Hawaiian set from the 1960's.
The dress looks a bit too long for my taste
so I might alter it slightly.

That's a fantastic set! The dress does look a little long and, coming from me (who ADORES mid-calf dresses) that's saying something.

Mrs Munster: Thank you darling.
My man actually likes to match my outfits so this is spot on. :))

BaronessVonVintage: Thank you very much. :)

Miss Tiki: Thanks hun. :)

Ms.B: Thanks dear. :)
I know! Back in 2003 I won everything I was bidding on, without much of a fight.
Vintage lingerie for example went for a couple of dollars, now they go for a fortune.

Dad: Thank you. :)
You might have to wait a while for a picture though.

Daisymay: Than you! :)
The seller gave us $10 discount on the original shippingcost because she thought the set went for more than she'd expected! :D

Andi B. Goode: Thanks daring. :)
I'm still gonna keep it pretty long, I don't like my knees.
