We've had a wonderful time with our guests. A few young people came to visit and everyone knows that leaves you with one simple choice; walkies or trouble.
We chose walkies!
But now we've finished visiting and being visited and today all I feel like doing is lounging around.
|My 1940's house coat, which I bought here. I have just altered the sleeves a bit so I can get my arms in without having a panic attack.
|The dress has such lovely detailing. These are the tassles which are on the zipper down the front of the dress. I bought these shoes in Bath many years ago. They are called Nite-Aires Leisure Lovelies. I feel like Vivien Leigh in Gone with the Wind whenever I put them on.
|The dress is handmade and by a complete coincidence I found almost the exact pattern on ebay this morning in this shop.
|Here's a gratuitous shot of Vivien Leigh just lounging around. I think I might rather like my boudoir like that.
I bought this Eastern European folk plate in a charity shop and promptly broke it. There was a bit of a kerfuffle in Asda ladies and this was the result. Sigh. I also acquired a rather lovely linen tablecloth with a map of Australia plus various animals and plants. I'm a bit of a sucker for a nice tablecloth.
