Hi everyone, I have had one of "those days" at work which can only be remedied by chocolate. How do you de-stress after a difficult day?
Today I wore one of my all-time favourite skirts - with an Art Deco borderprint. I am laughing in the photo because my beloved Black Cat "Handbag" was literally trotting towards me. He loves being in my blog photos.
Art Deco border print skirt - age uncertain possibly from 1970s judging by the sewing. Bought at Savemart in Blenheim. Shirt, jacket, belt and necklace all thrifted. Pink Flower from KMART. Melissa Shoes.
I want to show-off a couple of things made by my very talented 12yo daughter. Look what she brought home on Monday night...an amazing backpack with cool fabric which is a map on London...and she also made her Dad a cushion to take to the cricket!!! Isn't that so sweet??
Finally I want to show you some of the "goodies" on sale at the local Restore shop. 12 yo and I visited on Saturday while Dad was watching NZ vs West Indies at cricket. Honestly there there was so much more I could have photographed, this is just a sampler!
The doll was in terrible condition - as you can see from her crooked eye - but I felt compelled to sit her up a bit straighter and take her photo. There were about 20 or 30 pomanders and some impressive casserole dishes. I bought nothing but did enjoy my fossick. I wore a thrifted tee shirt and jeans both from Toffs and a vintage choker.
Restore has been tidied up and some of the displays have been changed. In the room out the back where the furniture is stored there used to be area for stuff that really should have gone to the dump. Its all gone now and the furniture area is looking much tidier. The paintings and mirrors are better displayed and some of the book area has been removed to make more space. All in all very worthwhile improvements.
Time for more chocolate, hope you are all having a good week, Penny-Rose xx
