After all the excitement and treats of last week, things are a little quieter around here.
Which is OK. I need to get my breath back.
Of course, there is the new edition of Vogoff to enjoy.
So many wonderful contributions.
Melanie, hard working assistant to the tyrannical Editor-in-Chief Miz Bagg, has done an amazing job; check out the awesomeness, marvel at the beauty, style and great foolishness!
I did enjoy doing my photo shoot as Clementine, I laughed so much that half the photos were unusable.
I might even show you some of the outtakes, wouldn't that be a treat?
1950s Hawaiian dress - flea market
Sequin top - jumble sale
(Total cost of these 2 items - under £2!)
Pendant and bangles - charity shopped
Sandals - retail
There's my garden goddess statue. My blogger pal Secret Squirrel asked me if she has a name, but she doesn't.
I googled goddess of the garden and came across a Roman goddess called Horta; I could go with that, but it sounds redolent of other, less horticultural connotations...
I went to nine charity shops this morning with my mate Jo - count them, NINE - and only found one little thing, which is intended as a gift for someone.
How did that happen?
Yesterday was slightly better.
I found a third 1960s vanity case - in the same charity shop as the other two - so now I have a red, white and blue set. They were all different prices, which made me laugh (£3, £3.50 and £4, if you're interested).
The pressed glass jar with a silver plate lid (1930-40s, maybe?) just appealed and has a little collection of hat pins in it. (£2.)
The patchwork print fabric is a 1970s homemade dress which has lost its elastic and looks rather odd, but I have hopes of being able to fashion something out of it. Don't know what yet, but the fabric was too good to leave behind. (£3.)
Our lawn is scattered with dandelions and daisies, I like them.
And that's all I've got.
See, told you I was feeling quiet this week.
