Just an update on what has been happening around here.
The Buy of the YearWell
ok so you can still count how old the year is on two hands and one foot, still I reckon I would be hard pressed to top this one. I found this dress one day at the op shop – went home and thought about it over night, then went back and bought it the next day. It’s pure Thai Silk, brand new, size 8. Yes I know that won’t fit me – darn it all – but hopefully one day it will fit Nicola just as she needs a stunning gown to go somewhere special. If it doesn’t that’s fine – I can always use the fabric…wicked grin. The price tag said it was $179.95…………I paid………wait for it…….$8.00!!!!
The Cup of The Year
Another bargain while Op Shopping…… the children found this mug and insisted I buy it….I wonder why?…vbg. Now I have to use it everyday (especially for breakfast when I’m not sure I do want to admit how old I am getting….lol) but I must admit it holds the best cup of tea ever.
Clues 5 and Six
I finished my vest the other night. It was very peaceful sewing down the binding while watching/listening to the latest Harry Potter movie….vbg.
Yesterday Ashley and I celebrated out 16th Wedding Anniversary. Nothing flash – just KFC for tea and a sit out on the new swing seat that Ashley bought me. I have wanted one for years and now I have one. It is super comfortable……..
……..can you tell how both Ashley and I and the dogs are enjoying it…vbg. After such a stinking hot day – it was nice to sit outside in the slightly cooler breeze and just chat and relax. Ohh and Ashley is taking photos of Elise with his phone – while Elise was taking photos of us with the camera. Is it just me or does anyone else find that slightly confusing….vbg.
Now I’m off to have a relaxing day playing around with the first block on the Baltimore Quilt I am making.
I hope your weekend is a good one.
