Sunday was a stay at home kinda day
but I still got productive.
Remember my stash of blankets?
I didn't share those with you
the stash of sheets.
...they're in the middle of being made into a coat!!
Of course I had assistance every step of the way.
Why do pets like to lie on your projects?
I am hoping to top stitch and embellish and be wearing it
by next week, so stay tuned.
I worked Monday as it is accounts time, and tidy some bits up around the office. So I am sort of normal this week, well for a few days. At this rate I will be able to finish for the week tomorrow which means I get a 5 day weekend, yes 5 days in a row!! Woohoo. And TOF will be home, life is good.
Monday night I accompanied Jak to Waihi to seal the deal financially on the car he purchased on the weekend. It is a long story but lets just say the OLD couple were very trusting people and all went well.
We stopped for petrol once at Waihi and Jak grabbed us a bag of Pineapple lumps to tie us over until we could get some dinner. We didn't leave Hamilton until 6:30pm so we were HUNGRY!!
We had one last play with all that lovely jubbly cash before he handed it over. It smelled really good, it smelled like FUN!!
I got pretty bored waiting in the car
so I made myself some Pineapple Lump teeth
and did a selfie!
Coz that's what you do.
Ok, not everyone would do that,
but bet you laughed!
(I did, and if you cannot take the piss out of yourself
then you cannot take the piss out of others)
The lights on this thing looked amazing
hence the photo
and there just so happened to be
a cool house/church
hard to tell in the dark
but worthy of a snap!
We dined on a feed of dirty old Kentucky Fried Chicken, most of mine ended up out the car window for animals to eat or homeless folk. I was worried about Jak venturing off and buying a car by himself but I have to say it is a very nice car, and he is quite a good driver, so it was a relaxing trip for me as a passenger.
Day of work and then a very successful session
amongst some of my favourite shops.
The most gorgeous Swan basket $3, Trelise Cooper Bangle $2, sparkly old purse, $5 and the best ever basket $3, yes I lied, my basket collection is not complete.
I have wanted a bucket bag for ever, probably since my friend Leonie had one years ago and I silently admired it. Well today I found this brand new one $8. Swimming with the Sharks shoes $8, Bali statues $1 each, bathroom stuff set for $8, and the book was $2. Dick Frizzell is a famous Kiwi artist and the book is illustrated by him.
Variety of clothes mainly $2.50 each from Hospice Shop in town.
Dress in top left was $6 from Save Mart.
All these $2.50 from Hospice
apart from the shrug for $5 from new second hand
shop in Frankton.
The coloured jeans are brand new Jeans West men ones,
Max has scored one pair and one of Jaks mates has the other.
3 things I love, Tex, the moon out in the daytime, and Spring flowers.
Winter Roses, looooooove Winter Roses!!
Jonquils and Oscar.
One smells better then the other.
George sung his little heart out in the sunshine
getting high on the scent wafting from the Daphne!
Busted barking for no good reason!
Monkey see, monkey do!!
So what have you all been getting up to???
