We popped out in the rain on Saturday to collect some cedar French doors we'd won on Trade Me-they will eventually be installed at the back of the house, where they will lead off my dream kitchen to the deck.
We'll be terribly flash with 2 sets of French doors!
We got them from a very nice man who has a two storied house of the same era as our house (1920's), which has sadly been written off due to the earthquakes. The foundation is broken to all hell, and the whole house sagged and bowed. We had a quick little tour of the ground floor; it had all the original wood panelling and the original kitchen! They were getting ready to renovate and restore when the February quake hit.
So sad, the amount of beautiful old houses lost forever.
It was rather bitter out there, so I had to rug up nice and cosy-like!
Spot anything different?!
I actually had a go at curling my hair!
Wonders will never cease.
I was having a trial for my big, boofy curly hair vision I was blithering about last post.
Frock-made by moi using a sheet and a 50's pattern Vix sent me ages ago
Coat-50's, opshopped for a tenner a few years back-it's super warm!
Pink cardi and yellow belt-from my gorgeous Sarah
Burgundy cardi, barely seen, and scarf-opshopped
Boots-Trade Me. Had 'em for ever!
I've been a very spoiled girl and have received two Prcels of Joy recently!
This one was from Curtise the Bod...that hideousTASTIC jacket is gonna get some new buttons, and isn't the red, white and blue frock just perfect for me?!
Some clip on earrings and a brillant frock catalogue....
These two are my faves!
Why, hello, I suspect Orla Kiely has the same catalogue for inspiration!
This card made me giggle.....
And this Parcel of Joy was from the scrumptious Sarah!
A Mrs Slocombe style suit, a lurid lurex frock, a funky collar and a Frida brooch!
This card also made me giggle!
How very fitting!
Thank you, my lucious wenches!!!
I just want to take you out into the wet fields and make sweet lurve to you both!
