You can do magic-you can have anything that you desire

G asked me if I was doing a post.
I said, well, where do I start?!
I've got piles of pix and no clue!
He said-DO A MOTHER LOAD POST.


At a bbq...


A divoon dinner out....


Flowering cacti in our garden...


A few drinkies at a local bar, featuring local colour Jimmy on guitar...


G donned his best Stubbies for a bbq at ours....


I loved Jo's 60's number!


G put up a rack for (most of) my coats and capes in my sewing/dressing room where the fireplace used to be.
I have filled those splendid drawers with (some of) my hats, and the case underneath holds my hair ornaments....


We had a wonderful re-connection/evening with my bestie Justine, who moved to Wellington a year ago...


Running a couple of errands in the rain....

Hope y'all have been having the most splendiferous of times, getting (and giving) loadsa lurve!

WOOHOOOOO!!! You look AMAAAZING in every single outfit, darling! I especially love: the purple/blue/orange maxi, the green headpiece, Jo's blue/white mini, G-Star's bbq outfit, your legs. your coat collection, your 50s clock, your dusky pink maxi and the faux fur capelet and hat in the last pic - EVERY SINGLE OUTFIT IS EXQUISITE! Why do you not have your own tv show?

Love you more than cactus flowers! Sarah xxx

Your dresses are so gorgeous. But I am in loveeee with the first dress in the first photo. And how great is your coat-rack. I will show it to my hubby to let him see that I am not the only one with a lot of coats. :)
Love your beautifull colorfull house. Looks like you've all had an amazing time!

Vintage Coconut said...

Omgoodness so many lovely photos.
And I was so happy to see you & Justine together again.
I need a rack for my coats!! (oh do I ever)

Miss Simmonds Says said...

not sure which photo I love the best, you look fabularse in all of them. Especially sexy on the sofa with G, who looks extremely raunchy in his socks n shorts combo. When you're drunk do you gravitate to trees? It seems that way. Jo has got gorgeous hair! xxxx

Bella Q said...

G gives good advice! Love you in all the frocks you rock- but seriously I need to see your naked gams more often- you sizzle,my Helga! PS: does Jo have a blog- I love her style!

Bella Q said...

PSS: Give G a big smooch for me- I love his fancy sweater vest.

PSS: why don't you have your own TV show?

Emalina said...

So much gorgeousness, it's total gorgeous overload! Looks like you've been having a fabulous time Helga, and looking amazing in each and every stunning outfit. I particularly love that last photo of you and your handsome G: what a knock-out couple.

Eeek said...

Such a lovely lounging shot of you both.

Linda Wolf said...

Great post, Helga!

Lovin' all your photos, Helga. You are one fierce and beautiful woman! Really like the pic of you an your man on the sofa. You look like a full-on goddess.

You new closet looks super! Glad I'm not the only woman in this world that's taken up her sewing room closet with coats, jackets, ponchos, etc. When you live in warm climates like we do, perish the thought of getting chilled, right?

Happy New Year to you. :)

Vintage Bird Girl said...

So much eye candy I hardly know what to focus on! You look fabularse in each & every outfit, but I am rather taken by the brown & orange frock. And G in those shorts....Hubba hubba!!! I hope there will be plenty more cavorting to come. Xx

freckleface said...

That picture of you and your man on the couch is just so so beautiful. xxx

Hannah said...

Beautiful snaps, you have such a fun filled life. The snap of you and G on the couch made my heart melt xxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

I love all the photos - thanks for the peek at your friends, your flowers, your coat closet (I think we are tied for who has the most coate) and some lovely moments with G! Happy New Year Babe!

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Stylish on your own (in the picture with the blue dress in particular ...), stylish together with yor friend and adorable together with your man, and I'm sure you do fun things (!) together.

CityScape Skybaby said...

So many great pics Helga, I love you in the blue dress putting your best leg forward, you snuggling up to Justine, then with G, G's very gentlemanly look with the v neck sweater, and in his shorts, your storage corner which makes me lust after a bit more space, everything, your life looks so fun filled and full of love and good times. xx

Sue said...

Bring on the mother load, they were all fab.

liz said...

Please tell Jo I'll take that blue/white dress off her hands ANY TIME! Same goes for that faaaabulous brightly-colored bbq dress you had on! Ooh, G in shorts! It's wonderful gazing at all your summery color while it's winter here, woo hoo!

joyatri said...

A motherload, indeed. You're a flowering cacti in that maxi in the first pics. And what are you and Jo doing by the side of the road? Dancing? Luring passers-by with your sparkles and gorgeous gams?
I love Jo's go-go dancer dress and your hat for running errands in the rain.
G looks quite handsome and elegant in the sweater vest.
So much goodness in one post!

The Pugnacious Vegetarian said...

I love that first dress. The photo of you and your bestie captures the deep friendship you have. It's beautiful!
