It was so much fun to meet up with DD Desiree from Pull Your Socks Up yesterday.I really wanted to surprise her but LL didnt want to rock up and have no one home.So I called her while she was at the supermarket and asked if she had her glad rags on and as you can see in the pics she did.All bar the hat (which I just gave her) was what she wore shopping isnt she just gorgeous?
I pinched this of DDs post love it.Have no clue what LL said but it must have been funny.
I just wish I could have stayed longer as we would have had such a great time.I got to see her wardrobe of stunning items wow she has such beautiful things and she is such a warm and beautiful person just like on her blog.
The darling gave Miss4.5 a dolls house too I couldnt belive it as I was on the hunt for one for the little miss anyway.I will post a pic soon,as its at LLs house for now.
A big hug for the doll house.
Before we drove to see DD we hit the oppies at Paddington in Brissie but they all know how to charge for their clothes all retro shop prices.But I did manage to find this awesome leather briefcase for a tenner and this gorgeous lace top that I think I shall dye a deep green as I am not a white wearing person as a rule.
After seeing DD we travelled up to the Sunshine coast and to Caloundra opshops LL had googled all oppies (her idea not mine I promise) all up the coast plenty left for next time.
I bought this dressing gown for $2 as it was half price day
We did find the Salvos in an arcade that was ok I bought these boots for $4 a dress and 2 enamelled bangles.They also had some gorgeous vintage pieces of jewellery but high prices.
Around the corner was a tiny thrift shop (more my speed.) I got this cute bed jacket $1 and this beautiful petticoat/slip for $2.
LL got me 2 Notebook mags that I dont have in my collection for 70c each ( more my price) and she found books for her collection.
The vintage dresses (which werent very many) were way over priced too.So I only bought the mags and few toys for the other grandies plus this potporri avon hand.
We made it home at about 8pm as LL wanted to detour into another town to buy herself a row machine to add to her gym gear (little miss fitness she is)
I am now sick with head cold thanks to the air con all day at the hospital ,hope I didnt pass it to you DD.
Miss 4.5 is at home again today red eyes are fading and she is doing well.
This was 1st night
PS Kitty I will visit you if I am ever down Mt Tambourine or we get to meet up in Brissie sorry I missed you this time xxx .I will also visit Katherine and Kristen at The Old Boat House too.
Now am I going to rest my weary blocked head and dripping nose xx
