I wore me some Pearls
some Possum on my shoulders!!
(I was going to say pearl necklace and fur, but imagine the disappointment for googlers!!)
All this with some Black, White, and Red, and of course Spots and Stripes. Today's feature was my RED BOOTS! I have been wary of wearing high footwear as my dodgy ankle was putting me off. You will be pleased to know that I did not fall over or roll my ankle once. Maybe I am good to go with my higher heels!! Hope so, I have a few. I do love my black Possum Skins! I got them off Trade Me last year and I have simply joined them so a tail hangs down my back and man my shoulders are kept warm when I wear it.
The great un-layering
or is that the
Today after work I drove out to Ohaupo about a 10 minute drive south of Hamilton. I was meeting some friends that are getting married out at Windy Ridge out there tomorrow and I was checking out the venue. What a beautiful place for a wedding, and the decorating was going well when I left. So I am off to a Wedding tomorrow, woohoo!!!!
I was early so I decided that I would have myself some lunch. The cafe is inside Clock World so there was a lot of ticking and chiming going on, not that it bothered me. I found myself a nice spot in the sun with a window and feasted on smoked chicken Panini and had a lovely Mocca. The lady said my spot in the sun would be perfect for a cat, so I promised her I wouldn't sit on the table! I was going to say and lick my....but thought maybe not!!
I called in at an old fashioned Church Op Shop in Glenview today. The sort that is cash only and cheap as pricing. The doilies were all 50 cents each, the straw dolls were 50 cents for the lot, the black daisy trim is attached to a skirt and there is lots of it and it will be unpicked was $2. Only want the trim not the skirt. The gloves were cheap and they are like a mesh, I have a couple of people that are in the running to get them. I also got an Arron hand knitted mans cardigan with a full length zip in the front that Jak has decided he likes that was only $3!! Insane! When this little shop is good it is GOOD!!!
On my way home I detoured to Hamilton Lake, well Lake Rotoroa to be exact! The gardens are stunning at the moment and I take my hat off to the City Council Gardeners that maintain our city parks and reserves. Just look at the colour and the shapes. I love that our round abouts and traffic islands get planted in colour. I used to think I should have been a city council gardener.
Spring bulbs are even growing on the top of it.
This is a reasonably new sculpture at the lake. Sorry to say I do not know what it is called or what it represents as I could not find anything to tell me such information. But it is a Maori design and I like it. It is big and bold and such a statement. Hamilton has plenty of sculptures, some I like and some I am not so keen on. Hey but that is art, not to everyone's taste. Sure does create conversation tho'.
Glad you all got a giggle about the petting charts.
