A shopping we will go, and I might just mow the lawns

Yesterday I went out to this shop called Eleven which has some quite lovely clothes.  The lady goes on shopping trips to Bangkok and Thailand and brings back some pretty cool stuff.  Some of it I gag at but she ain't shopping just for me!!!  I know you can get the stuff for next to nothing over in these places but I'm not planning a trip to any of these countries anytime soon so happy to have a spend in her shop every now and again.  So I treated myself to this strapless dress with the most amazing embroidery on the front.  Now with boobs the size of my girls I will have to make some straps as my girls are not designed for strapless bras or going bra less. Those days are long gone for me!!!  So a trip across the road to Spotlight will be in order to find some white fabric that I can scrunch and put elastic in to make straps that will hide my bra straps.  This was only $45 which I don't find particularly expensive.  I also bought a top that was half price due to me buying the dress, so it was only $10.  Tis orange, and I don't do alot of orange but I quite like this one.  You will see it later on in this post.  TOF worked this morning so I decided on a wee outing out to Save Mart a huge recycled clothing barn which is usually over priced but for some reason or another the owner must have got bitten big time by Christmas cheer because I walked out with a bag full of goodies and only spent $44.  I think I was there for 2 hours but it was not very busy so great to just mooch amongst all the racks and racks of clothing.























A few tops, couple of shrug cardies, a dress, $2 bag, and another Happy Hen for .99cents.

I came home or a quick lunch and a sit own with the fan on.  The temp has been hovering in the mid to high 20s today and for some reason I thought mowing the lawns with my new hand mower was a good idea.  Bloody enjoyable but freakin' hot!!!
I rewarded myself with a nice cold beer from the fridge!!!
Oh look, there I am in my orange top. (worn with my long black culottes)




















Lastly TOF dug up some of his spuds, not a bad yield but he has gone for the novelty spud this year, they have extras!

Oh you look so fabulous in the orange top and pants - so cool and floaty:). My favourite pic from the shop simply has to be the top left one - it's so colourful! I would be tempted to put toothpicks in the spuds and make funny monsters out of them;) xo

Love the orange top and the gorgeous finds - especially the fab colourful top! I love Desiree's idea - make monsters with the wonky spuds!
