Sunday Drive

Here are some photos I took of the country on the way to my grandparents farm a couple of weeks ago...

A lovely old bluestone cottage.

The Inverleigh Pub.

Where the road ends.

Classic Chic

Hello dear readers. 
You will have noticed a lot of my posts lately are fashion related. This is because work and uni has pretty much taken over my life at the moment. However before starting my new job I had the fun experience of buying a new wardrobe for work! I love the whole vintage, classic, stylish chic look. But with a dash of colour and funk. It must be the artist in me trying to escape.
This cute red and blue skirt is a favourite from Dangerfield.  I usually wear it with a grey top. The red cardi goes well and I also wear it with a royal blue blazer sometimes too.

And of course one needs to rug up nice and warm before venturing outside in the Victorian winter weather.

Shopping Strip

These small suburbian shopping strips are a dying breed.

Crazy pattern

So I went fabric shopping the other day...(Oh no! Not again you say!).

My darling Mum made this cute envelope clutch for me from retro style fabric. Perfect size for nights out on the town. The lining is a funky green with purple spots. Thanks Mum! 

And check out this little coin purse I stitched myself! It was the first time I sewed a zip too. All by hand as well. The kit came with Mollie Makes magazine. The orange pouch is the snug little home for my mobile phone. 

Oh would you look at that-I'm a poet and I don't know it!

Childhood Fun

I have fond memories of this rocking boat at my Grandparent's farm. I used to play on it heaps with my cousins when I was little. I noticed that Pa has replaced the old wooden seats with new wood- he is getting ready for the next round of grandchildren and great-grandchildren I think. 

I am the oldest grandchild out of nine and the youngest is only six months old. My brother is the only grandson, all the rest are girls.

Happy Father's Day!

Remember a couple of months ago the photos I took around my grandparent's farm? Well that was winter and now it is spring. Look how much the wheat has grown! 
Wheat a couple of months ago.

And the wheat now.
