Being a bit out of practice with blogging, today I wanted to make up for lost time! First up, do any of you have an item of clothing in your wardrobe that you love, can't bear to part with, but somehow have only worn once or twice in the last ten years? No, I am not talking about wedding dresses or ball gowns. Well, I do. About 10 years ago I was at a school fair and I found an Osti dress (polyester) dating from the late 1960's or early 1970's which still had all the original tags. That dress is long gone, but lives on in my collection of Osti dresses. At the same time I found a homemade dress.....

Anyway, this object of loveliness sits in my wardrobe and is rarely worn. After this successful outing, I think I might wear it more often!!
Next I want to show you a favourite combination - brown and teal. I have worn this dress many times, its also homemade, probably from the 1970s with a big collar. Polyester.

Finally, I went to Wellington a couple of weeks ago for a one day Pay and Employment Equity conference with my union. It was a really intense day and at the end I went for a very long walk along the waterfront:
I really like Wellington: its a lot like Dunedin with the harbour and the hills and the weather, but its bigger, brighter, more arty (lots of sculptures and displays). I did not have time to do any shopping or go to the museums but that was okay, I had fun by myself, which was a nice contrast to the full on conference.
Okay, its Saturday morning, and that means several things: washing, washing, washing, washing, a bit of blog reading, cleaning...etc.
Thanks for the positive comments about my submission :-)
