We will take a cup of kindness yet ....


And a very Happy fecking New Year  to you lovelies!!!
We rang it in delightfully, a little drunkenly and with some volume in Kaikoura; as it tipped over from 2013 to 2014 we were mid set at The Pier Hotel....


These pix are from the following evening, however.
I managed not to take many pix on New Years Eve, somehow!
We also did an afternoon set on New Years Day, and finished off our Kaikoura "tour" with an amazing dinner and far too many gin and tonics......we must have done all right, as we have been invited back to play in a couple of months!
Huzzah!



I could sit on that balcony and watch the sea for hours.....


An evening breeze!


My Elsa Billgren inspired square dancing frock was from Etsy, the tights retail, the belt, earrings and red beads (with added Turkish charm by moi) were opshopped, the handbag is an early 60's Rex, and was G's Mama's.
O, and the red flower was from a consignment shop in Alamogordo, New Mexico last year, and the shoes from Trade Me!



We do hope you've all had the most marvellous time over New Year, with lashings of alcoholic ginger beer and licky dogs!

Here's the view from the balcony!

I so could sit on that balcony and watch the world pass by, but you would have to be there. Love that dress, so glad the wind didn't blow it up around your ears for a nicker shot!! Or am I? Happy and Healthy New Year to you and G.

Darling, is there a greater combination in the world than black and white gingham and RED? You are exquisite perfection and I would give ANYTHING to be sitting on that balcony with you!

Happy New Year to you, my love.

Rock the fuck ON!

Happiest of New Years honey.

pastcaring said...

Oh yes please, let's sit on that balcony, G&T in hand, and watch the sea, while singing increasingly drunkenly to any passers by. Who will then gather into a small crowd below the balcony, and roar for more, until it becomes a full-on gig.
Sorry - where was I?!
So pleased the gigs went well, and that you had a fabulous time, and that you look so beautiful, sashaying about with your wee drinkie, in gorgeous gingham!
Loving yoooou and sending you and G big kisses for the new year! xxxx

Sandra said...

There is something about the sea, the view from the balcony is beautiful, WHAT a view indeed! and of course with a G&T, bonus is after several I would be seeing multiple views, can't be bad! you and your square dancing frock are gorgeous, and with perfect red tights, gingham and frills are life's nectar! excellent news on the gigs too! Happy New Year, have a wonderful one! x x x

Forest City Fashionista said...

I would go out on New Year's Eve if it meant seeing you and G play music! Look at you, flashing those crimson clad gams in the breeze. What a gorgeous view, so much nicer than here, where it's -20 degrees celsius and white as far as the eye can see...sigh.
Happy New Year Darlin'!

So glad your gigs were a hit (as if everyone wouldn't love you guys!) and you had a great New Years. You are looking divine in that classic colour combo, and one of my personal faves - black, white and red. Love it and love your outfit. XXX
