I went to work this morning in the rain with an enormous burgundy wool coat....then it turned into a Nor'Wester and got really hot!
I've spent my Friday afternoon handsewing curtains for the band room to the tune of G banging away putting weatherboards on the part of the house where a secondary chimney was removed, with a couple of WWII documentaries for company and a glass of wine for sustenance.
I suppose it's rather domesticated.
G is my Magic Man when it comes to finding amazing Trade Me scores for the house.
(He is also my Magic Man in other ways, but those are none of your business!)
Last night we went out to Rolleston to collect this 60's cocktail cabinet he nabbed the other night!
It looks divine with G's Nana G's cigar lamp on the left, and a beautiful lady lamp (our lamp, our lamp, our lovely lady lamp) atop it's sleekness.
The lady lamp was another G Force bargainacious score off Trade Me!
(We just picked her up from one of G's brothers; she went into storage whilst we had earthquake repairs done and stayed there whilst we got stuck into these renovations!)
We have another one, a different style, but she was thrown onto the floor and snapped in half during the February 22nd, 2011 earthquake; we hope to be able to repair her.
Um, I'm trying to draw your attention to my brooches....
I got the top one at the Balmain Markets when Sarah and I met for the first time in Sydney last year.
The little pink diamante one was a gift from a dear friend and the embroidered one was a gift from my wonderful sister Wendy, whom I will get to see next month!
This 60's necklace was an opshop find, and the earrings were a gift from the sweetest Squirrel !
This fabulous 60's vanity case was a gift from Sarah ; the mirror inside is still in a little paper bag!
We fecking love it.
Gagging to fill it up!
Frock-early 70's, "thrifted" in Utah a few years ago, the print is heavenly!
Mint green tights-retail
Flower-gift from friends Justine and Pixie!
