A good weekend.....

A good weekend, to me, is time spent with my family.

A good weekend is a chance to wear something new:

Vintage Marks and Spencer green polyester blouse - Trademe $4
Denim waistcoat - retail
Green and brown home made skirt - St V de P $2
Beige boots - Restore $7
White vintage glass triple strand necklace - Trademe $1
White perspex bunny earrings - Trademe $10
Bangles - various op shops
Rings - wood and leather from subway store in Melbourne

A good weekend is being able to leave the city behind and enjoy the fresh sea air (as we did a couple of weeks ago):

Chasing birds on Aramoana Mole

Or smell some rare orchids deep in the forest.....
Easter Orchids at the Orokonui Eco-Sanctuary
Watch Tui's drinking sugar water at a feeding station....

In the weekend its good to get in the car and visit a "little town"....

 ..a little town where most of the major employers have shut up shop such as the woollen mill :-(

...we were just passing through but took time to tour some of the back streets and snap some photos of the lovely brick buildings.

A good weekend is when you can move the 10yo daughter back into her room and start to sort out things...

...and appreciate the small things in life, like the sound of the ocean, or the calls of wild birds, or the tiny perfection of a ladybird family.

How was your weekend?  Mine was just lovely :-)


  1. How lovely. Simple pleasures. Great prints on both your blouse and skirt. It sounds as though you have had a great weekend! xxxx

  2. Simple pleasures indeed! It's nice to put things in perspective.

  3. I agree, these things all sound like they would make for a perfect weekend! I had a nice one too, mainly catching up with friends and family.

  4. Oh what perfect weekend. The simple beauty that let's you just breath.
    The ladybirds are so cute.
    I hope the week is filled with simply wonderful moments.
    Love v

  5. Great outfit! Also that's good to hear that you had a wonderful weekend as well!
