I bought the lace trim in France, years ago.
I expect that it will get a bit of wear over the years, as somebody always needs to dress up as a shepherd at Christmas time!
So moving on from the not-so-good to the fabulous. I bought these shoes last week, 70% off and the last pair left were my size.These shoes are very out of character for me...usually my heels are limited to the diana ferrari super-soft and the equally comfortable Tsonga shoes. The colour is what I love most about these.
The t-shirt: a no-brand t-shirt that I picked up in Melbourne. It does have a tag saying "made in China".
The skirt: my favourite skirt pattern, Vogue 7735, made up in a Japanese cotton from Tessuti.
The shoes: as above
The necklace: from Elk. My sisters have recently introduced me to this jewellery label and I love every piece in the collection.
I have always loved the green colour in the shoes. My favourite, favourite piece of furniture is a cabinet that Peter built for me from an old oven that I picked up at the dump shop for $7. I'm sure these ovens would sell for way more at a 2nd hand shop. It is the only time I have ever rummaged in the "shop" at the dump. On the same day, I picked up some scraps of colour-bond that Peter used when he made our wine-rack (too dusty to photograph!). Must have been my lucky day.
