She sinks and lands on the back of my hand



These are some photos from Saturday.
Apart from a small grocery mission and band practice that night, it was blessedly mellow.


I love this 60's vanity case; I must have had it fo over 10 years!
I wish I had one in every colour....


I had forgotten about these 70's sandles!
They were one of a few pairs given to me many years ago.
They're a bit clunky, but fun.


We've filled up the left side of our 60's liquor cabinet with some Mexican finds, and other drinking accoutrements!
The mini sombreros on top will go onto the wall at some stage.

You may have but I certainly hadn't forgotten about those glorious sandals, I've been lusting after then since you did a shoe post about 18 months ago!!!
That dress is one of my very favourites I've ever seen on you, so deliciously 70s and Margo-tastic, I love it! That bag looks like a funkier version of those satchels the youths bankrupt themselves over!
Love you!

Autumn colours Helga doll. Is there a colour you will not wear? I swear you can wear any colour!! My eldest sister had a pair of Leather and wooden chunkmiester heels like yours that I used to borrow and wear under incredible flared jeans to make me taller so I could get into R18 movies back in the day!!!
