Excuse the dozy expression. We made the most of today's glorious sunshine and drove the Variant over to a quaint pub where we met friends and partook in light refreshments and home-made vegeburgers with chunky chips in the beer garden. Sadly as Jon was driving I had to quaff two bottles of iced Swedish Kopparberg on his behalf.
I've spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping in the shade.
When we pulled up at the car boot sale yesterday I told Jon that I wanted to find a pair of chunky wooden clogs as my last pair gave up the ghost a couple of years ago. Although they're the "in-thing" there's no way on earth I'm going to buy a high street pair, nice as they are, in my world that's just far too easy.
Lo and behold, the first stall we came across I spotted these beauties priced up at a mere 75p, I was so excited I gave the nice lady 80p and told her to keep the change.
I also spotted this rather cool vintage Egyptian scarab pendant and simply had to purchase it along with some other pieces of 1970's Stainless steel costume jewellery. Now I know I wrote on Friday's blog that I never needed to buy another piece of jewellery ever again...BUT the whole lot only came to £6 and it was in aid of Cat's Protection.
When I got up on Saturday morning the postman had left a surprise parcel on the doorstep from a rather fabulous person. These dresses are just so gorgeous they almost have me wishing for the temperature to drop a little so I need to wear sleeves again.
Rose print maxi (£5 Charity shop), Vintage straw hat (50p car boot sale), Clogs (75p car boot sale), Scarab pendant (£1.50 car boot sale), Silver jewellery (India and Mum's collection)
I'm very excited about watching "The Stones In Exile" tonight. Time for another snooze to ensure I stay awake to drool over the beautiful Mick and Keef....
