My pants are too big, how about yours??

Remember the black pants with the bobbles on the hem that I found the other day, well I decided I had to wear them today.  I knew they were too big but thought what the hell.  I have spent the day with the crutch sliding down to my knees!!  Well not quite that far as I have a Kardashian sized arse at the moment which thankfully kept them from hitting the ground!!  I will take them in so this doesn't happen again as they are so very comfy.

I wore them with the Kimono sleeved top I got the other day and my Aqua wedge shoes, so my entire outfit today was all second hand and cost naf all.  Originally some one paid a fortune for each part of this outfit, and to them I say, "Thank you"!!  My photo bombing animals just had to get in on the action.

Over the last two days while tooing and froing from my jobs I have called in on a couple of op shops.  The skirt is a perfect layering piece for me, the Queen of layering.  The knitted blonde Frida look alike I think is a loo paper cover and it was in amongst kids toys.  So beautifully made and deserved to be in a bathroom not a toy box.  Loads of gorgeous lace to add to my stash of trims, and a couple of beautiful old sheets for my fabric stash.  I love this old cake tin, just like we had as kids and will hopefully get a cake inside it later this week.  The table runner has a beautiful Peacock each end.  All priced from $1 to $5.

I was asked the other day what I did with all the things I buy.  What I do not keep and use for myself I on sell.  This way I can maintain my lifestyle of part time worker, part time moocher.  I call it my balance, and it so works for me.  TOF calls it something completely different!!

I found some things for other people today while I was out, which is something I enjoy doing.  So it isn't all about me!!

And today's message is from my animals!!

You are a tonic you are! Had to laugh at the pants comment...didn't ya know that's trendy?! All the youngsters here wear their pants with the crotch down by their knees....mind you, you didn't get it quite right...you have to show your underwear as well! ;-)

Isn't it wonderful when things are too big and not too tight. I love your blue shoes in the previous post. Gorgeous!

Argh, the doggie tin!!! And the peacock thingys, and the blue lace!
Ha, I frequently have tights falling down to my knees, but usually wear safety pants to keep them up!
Pom Poms are a REVELATION! Bless!
