Swallowing diamonds, a cutting throat, your teeth when you grin reflecting beams on tombstones


We've been on a splendid long weekend driving about the South Island....totally gloriarse, except for a nasty cold wind that followed us about like a bad smell!
Above is a pic from Waimate, where we spent yesterday afternoon and last night...isn't this building incredible?!

Below are the goodies we managed picked up....



The two frocks are from Two Squirrels gorgeous little shop in Milton!
SQUEE!

A road trip. How romantic, what a marvellous adventure! That building in Waimate is fabulous and as Vix says, the perfect backdrop for glorious you!

Where on earth is the spring? I want to get you out of all those layers! ;)

Those new sandals look so glam and I love the squirrels frocks, let's seem 'em on! I'm intrigued by the bit of green cord. Can you say in polite company what it is for? And is that a glass topped table I see before me? Tell me everything, dear Helga! :) xxxxxx
