So this morning (as in 5:30am) TOF left Hamilton to go back up North to work, but first he has to spend two days on a man course in Auckland, then he is back to that job that is keeping him away from HOME! But if all goes well this is the last leg of the job so possibly only two weeks. Should fly by, shouldn't it?
Anyway when I finally dragged myself out of my lovely warm bed I threw on this lot, sort of went animal. Even my boots have fur inside them, yes my feet were toastie as.
Do you know how hard it is
to take a photo of
the boots you have on
After work I hit the op shops that are near my place of employment, so that would be Frankton and there are four of them. Not a lot jumped out and grabbed my attention except this roll of contact, well that is what I call it. Like vinyl, sticky on the back. Anyway a total bargain at $1 and there is shit loads of it. Have a few old baskets that could do with a bit of pimping on the inside so this should be perfect. Oh look it has SPOTS!!!
My sister is over from the beach for a few days, staying at our mothers place. But we went out for a bit this afternoon. Of course we checked out the op shop near me and these paintings have appeared over the last week on the walls in the car park. Finally remembered to take photos, I rather like them all.
We went into Spotlight, huge home and living/haberdashery type of place which is also across the road from where I live. I have had my eye on this fabric FOREVER and it never goes on sale. So today with some prompting from my sister I bought some and even sewed it up tonight. Might even wear it tomorrow!!
A long singlet style dress.
Perfect for a layerer like myself!!
The colours are
Do you remember the black and white paintings I took photos of, of famous dead people? Well the artist has been at work again and now Frida has been painted. This is huge, on the side wall of a hairdressers. I drive past it every day on my way to work, so on our way into town I stopped to snap it. Then I showed my sister the black and white ones. So much fun having her in town, we are planning on a day out amongst the op shops on Friday. Woo hoo!!!!
