Over the past two days Britain's been lashed by storms and I've had to wear a headband to walk into town to avoid being whipped and temporarily blinded by my hair.
The postman couldn't get to us yesterday as the road was closed due to flooding so he turned up early this morning with a parcel from the fabulous Nelly which amongst other treasures included this glorious lurex jacquard print maxi dress by Courtaulds which I had to wear immediately.
Kitsch Australian face cloths, vintage covered buttons, a scary kid picture for the Wall Of Misery, some crazy poodles for my collection, a crochet lavender bag and some gorgeous retro needles.
A hand made Scrabble ring and a pretty resin heart.
Jon loves his 1970s kipper tie complete with kangaroo tie pin so much he's planning to wear it for dinner on Saturday night.
Handmade steam punk spats and fingerless mitts.
Gold satin flared pants and a groovy paisley halterneck
and an AWESOME hand made bikini! I might be brave and post of photo of me wearing it, once I've got a tan.
Thanks, Nelly! I'm blown away by your generosity.
