Friday fun and footprints

This morning Sue came into town as we had a lunch date to attend.  So we decided we could squeeze in a few oppies before we had to met the others.  First of all I needed to pick up my paving stones that are so farkin cool I just about exploded with joy when I put them in the car!!
I wore this colourful dress top thing with leggings and my glitter jelly shoes, with merino op shopped cardy on top.  Not the best picture but TOF isn't that on to it when taking photos and this was taken late this afternoon hence the no shoes.  The sign we spotted in a shop today and just loved!!  And these are my pavers, they are brilliant and I have eight of them.  They are going to be stepping across by new barked garden when I get it done.  They are nearly twice the length of my little size 7 feet and will be so much fun. Courtesy of trade me and won the auction with a $14 big for the 8.  Pretty stoked!!
We met Janine (dark haired) and Liz (blonde) at this lovely Turkish eatery in Hamilton East called Bubaganush, spelt wrong but something sounding like that. Fabulous food, awesome company, and we laughed an awful lot.  The decor in this place was so nice, I rather liked the wall hanging near the door. 
Today's finds were, small Kath Kidston looking bag $1, sweet wooden shelves $4, 3 linen place mats $1.99 and the triple retro planter for $8 in spewmint green as my favourite Misfit in Australia would call the colour.
This is a selection of things I have got over the last week that are projects.  The chair was only $2 and just needs a rub and a paint, thinking something bright then some colourful cushions.  The small set of wooden draws is actually a jewelery box that will get a light sand along with the chest of draws. A friend of mine has just painted her bedroom furniture white, sanded it then poly urethaned it and it looks brilliant so may just give it a go.  But may go for a colour rather than white.

Big shout out to the pending weekend and I hope you all get to do something you enjoy!!
