Thanks for all the warm fuzzies you sent me re my birthday, 'love you all to the moon and back' as the saying goes!!
I had a pretty good weekend
So BIG THANKS again to you all.
Monday was a glorious sunny day and one to be enjoyed. I worked as I was having Tuesday off to do a thing with the Heir. My new to me Fly London shiny black boots are so comfortable, I think they will be a favourite for Winter. After work I called in on a couple of op shops.
Tunic and top only $2.50 each from Hospice and the SHOES, only $8 from Vinnies. I remember seeing these in a shop at the end of last year retailing for just under the two hundy mark, and these are so close to new that I am going to say they are!!!! I went back on Tuesday to Vinnies to get the plain black ones and found white ones, both only $6 which will be winging their way south to the very adorable Helga as soon as I get a postal bag.
I came across this beautiful embroidered cloth in a Church Op shop in town, $8, just needs to have the edge done, or will it be upcycled into something?? Options are a plenty.
Back in Hospice I found one of Dawns Dead Dollies for $1 and new I had to rescue it. I couldn't pass the beautiful thatched cottage print, $3, or the stunning earrings at $4.
Tuesday bloody well rained, and when I say rained, it RAINED!!! So no outside photos a mirror shot inside is all you get. After my mission with the Heir I headed out to visit Dawn.
Before I got there, I detoured to a couple of op shops and found the most colourful tunic and a old as pattern, thinking sheet couture! Not sure I will accomplish the tiny as waist look!
So what has Dawn been creating I here you ask?
Well these gorgeous black washed
block houses for starters.
These cute as little dudes that remind me of Max in 'Where the Wild things are'. Cannot wait to see them finished and all colourful.
Garden Toadstools anyone?
Season Four arrived.
And yes I watched disc one last night.
After the wet and miserable day yesterday, today turned on some SUNSHINE!! I hear we are in for RAIN tomorrow, which I don't mind if the sun comes back on Friday. I have a car full of Dawns creations to go over to my sister, in Whangamata, she is going to sell them in the shop she works in.
Sheba, Oscar and Tex were all outside with me this afternoon enjoying the weather. I tried to move the cane coffee table and wondered why it was so heavy.
Before I forget, we figured out names for the new Canaries. Elton and Freddie, as in Elton John and Freddie Mercury, because Canaries sing so beautifully that they need to be named after great singers. Oh and George has perked up and very happy with his new room mates, which is good news.
