Saturday morning and I am all by myself. Lit the fire. Made a hot drink. Internet humming. Toast has popped up. (Cat just re-entered house after post-breakfast stalk around the garden to check for invading felines from outer-space). Time to blog.
You know me, I love polka dots - spots, dots, blobs, repeating blobs and spots and dots. So lets look at something a bit different:
stripes stripes stripes
|I got stripes, stripes, stripes. With sincere thanks to Johnny Cash.|
Striped shirt from Savemart (love the frills, striped tights retail - the black stripes are velvety!!
NZ designer label Boucle skirt, 50 cents from Presbyterian Op Shop,
designer belt, $3 from St Vincent de Paul,
patent brogues (NZ Made) from Toffs $3,
vintage glass striped necklace about $4 from Salvation Army.
or how about:

embroidered leather boots Savemart

and then there is inspiration from fabric:

Okay, 12 yo is up and out of bed now. Time to plan our long (Queen's Birthday) weekend. Sure there'll be some chores, but we are also planning a walk in a park or along a beach, a bit of op-shopping (of course), maybe some baking and cooking. As a family we don't have to spend a heap of money to have fun together.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
