Little Girl Lost

The world of blogging is a new to me and I must confess to feeling a tad bit unsure of myself as my fingers tap away! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not a lover of technology far preferring good old fashioned pen and paper to a keyboard. However in the last six months I have come to grips with managing my website and so I have decided it is about time I took the plunge and started blogging...
I feel a bit like I am on first date and as with being on any date I should begin by introducing myself... my name is Daniella and as I have already alluded to I am rather an old fashioned kind of girl. This manifests itself in many ways including my love of all things vintage. This passion has inspired me to start up acorn & will. When I am working on things for acorn & will I am at my happiest ( except perhaps when I am doing admin type things)! There is nothing better than finding some treasure or a beautiful piece of vintage fabric which I can breathe new life into and my aim is to use this blog to share some of these special things with you. It will be a place for thoughts, comments and anything else I can think of.

As I type it is the first day of summer and so I thought I would give a sneak preview of some images I had taken last week for the new homepage I am planning, to mark the change in seasons...
The dress you see hanging over the suitcase is simply gorgeous- I had considered cutting it up to make some constance cushions and gracie girl zip purses but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. The ladies in the 1950's must have had tiny rib cages but I was determined to squeeze into this dress and squeeze into it I did! I can bearly breath but it is worth it!
my fab sis, Hayley, whom I am sure I will be mentioning lots more bought me this a lovely vintage picnic set. I am crossing my fingers I will be using it lots this summer! On that note I am off to enjoy the evening sun and I hope you do too!
