Hi everyone, are you all glad that it is Friday? I sure am. It's been a busy week. Thank you to all those who posted lovely comments on my last post. The world is a much smaller place with the internet and I feel so lucky to make friends the world over who are supportive and understanding.
I have a few photos to post but I want to start with what I wore today for Frock on Friday. In a rare move I actually came home and put on another Frock. Here they are:
Left Blue polka dot and stripe polyester dress of unknown vintage, discovered on Trademe.
Worn with blue plastic sandals from Factorie.
Right a relation of a muu-muu found in at Toffs.
There was one in greens and blues but I decided it would be greedy to buy both.
I love the lurid pink. It was only $2.
The garden is looking stunning at the moment.
I have grown some very large lupins and my beloved peonies are also flowering.
Here are a few photos from the last few weeks which due to
internet modem problems have not been blogged. Some of you might recall that I have been very interested in ducks recently. I was delighted to find a family of geese protecting three fluffy goslings when I visited a friend a few weekends back.
One of my favourite blue polyester dresses from the Milton Salvation Army.
Worn with a genuine vintage Canterbury jacket which I cut shorter.
I have decided that on days when I don't feel like being in a photo (or I take photos and I think they are hideous) I am going to take lots more pics of my accessories - jewellery and bags and belts and shoes.
Here is a collage from earlier this week when I wore green and gold and brown:
Green polyester Norman Linton dress (Trademe), green beads which were originally a longer necklace but I shortened to a choker and a bracelet. Kookaburra brooch, $1 from a market in Ranfurly, Brass rose bracelet from Blenheim, other bangles thrifted. Green bead ring from the Hospice Shop $2 and Mood ring $1 from a fair at Warrington.
Vintage polyester Trevira dress - the only dress I have ever found which has armpit pads to soak up odours. I removed them as I found them creepy. They were clean. Almost as if the dress had never been worn. Another Trademe find. The blue flower ring was a retail splurge. I just love the colour.
Modern unknown brand tee shirt from the Hospice Shop $2, Modern brand (forget name) pink floral skirt $3 from Toffs, pink Melissa Shoes, pink bangles and a cute ring found at the $2 import store.
I included the sunset because I wanted another pink photo and I could not find one.
Okay, the heater in this laptop is about to go Chernobyl so I am going to post this before something bad happens. Did I tell you that you are all wonderful? Well you are. Hope you are having great Friday night. xx
