I'd forgotten all about this 1960s swimsuit I found at a jumble sale last year so I popped it on, posted this photo on Facebook with a message saying that I was off to wear it in the garden and instantly lost three followers. Were people offended by the gratuitous display of flesh?

Sod 'em! Life's too short to conform. Hopefully, I'll be getting my kit off (and no doubt pissing more people off) for a good while yet (especially if we're getting the Summer we've been promised) and if that means losing "friends" along the way then so be it.
Nothing as offensive today though, the glorious sunshine we were treated to yesterday is but a distant memory. It was my bed cover capelet & vintage maxi at dawn for this morning's car boot sale and, as usual, even being completely covered from head to toe sent Porno Boy* into a frenzy, giving me a lascivious wink and rubbing his hands up and down his shell suit-clad thighs in glee.

Wanna see what we got?
Might have to oust a certain Polly Piglet first!
She's taken a fancy to the vintage Tootal scarves. A girl of great taste, obviously. There's a tweed jacket, a couple of head scarves, some tooled leather bags and a 1950s wool blanket I'll have to prise off her later.
Clockwise from top left: Bird print maxi skirt; Velvet tree print midi skirt; lizard handbag (it came in a dust bag, very swanky!); Scots-made gents wool cardi; groovy crimplene maxi dress; ILGWU fake fur coat labelled The Grand, Milwaukee; Batwing sleeve mohair cardi; bamboo handle handbag; See through mac (might nick that for Glastonbury!); Baby blue worsted wool jacket; nylon baby doll; beaded Italian-made handbag; gents corduroy & fake fur coat
I'm glad I got my sunshine fix yesterday as this afternoon will mostly be spent cleaning this lot leaving the evening free to watch the final episode of Banished, which I'm loving.
