I have been amused by the antics of my big black cat - seen skulking in the pic bottom right - it took three attempts to get him in the cat carrier to go to the vets to get his claws clipped. I bought this broken but lovely small planter at the Hospice Shop in Jetty Street in the weekend for $1. It sits on the window sill above the sink. The horse looks like it is smiling and every time I do the dishes I smile too.
Yesterday after some shopping and lunch with Dear D, I had to go to work for a couple of hours - my minute taking skills are apparently so good that no-one else can do this mundane task. She went to Iron Man 3 with her bestie and her Dad. Anyway, I cheered myself by wearing a great combination of orange and teal:
|Orange frill skirt Toffs $2|
Orange cotton top Hospice $2
Glengyle cardigan Toffs $2
Belt and boots thrifted
Leggings and necklace retail
Mount Cook Line Cabin bag Toffs $2
As it happens I found a pristine travel cabin bag from Mount Cook Line which coordinates with this outfit perfectly. It was $2 at Toffs.
Today my Dear D went to a sport activity this afternoon so I managed a quick look around Toffs again, before heading to South Dunedin. I found an amazing hand embroidered Indian skirt....but I spent so long in Toffs that I got a parking ticket :-(
South Dunedin was dreary....wet and cold....but I needed to post a small parcel so took advantage of a 120 minute free car park (ensuring I would not get another ticket). I called in to the Salvation Army store and was not inspired. However, in the St Vincent de Paul shop I spied a purple gingham zip up house coat!!
|Polyester Gingham housecoat $4, St v de Pa|
Indian hand embroidered skirt, $2 Toffs
