The last couple of days have been quite fruitful for me. Yesterday I checked out an op shop way out in the 'burbs and was lucky enough to find a vintage – yes, actual proper vintage! – '70s chiffon floral print dress for five whole bucks! It has a pleated skirt, and even a neck tie... I am looking forward to wearing this out soon. I also found a vintage pure wool nanna cardigan – as in thick, chunky and with little brown leather buttons. I realised the other day that I actually could do with some more warm winter clothing, and this will be perfect for snuggling into.
I also went into town today, to buy some cookware. One pink silicone cake tin is now mine. I just find that pretty things are just so much nicer to use, don't you? I would love to find some second hand kitchen bits – especially a big mug for tea and hot chocolate– but my searches are yet to turn anything up.
I don't look very happy here, perhaps because it is very windy and my hair was in my eyes. I also just have the grumpiest expression when relaxed, even though I am in a perfectly good mood. I think it is about to rain, and that is why it is so dark here, too. Oh, and the hat isn't hiding any disaster from the other day. The colour-removing went well, and I am getting a cut this coming Friday, which I really do need. I am just keeping warm.
Finally, I got some Jelly Beans! This is very unusual for me, as I don't really like sweets, or lollies, as they are called here. I do like the look and smell of them though. A few weeks ago, my mother-in-law gave us some Jelly Beans, and I found myself really enjoying them. Myer has a new sweety section right next to the cooking department (clever bunnies) and, so, while I was there...
... I got a handful. Yummy flavours and colours: cotton candy (candy floss, where I come from! I want candy floss hair, but that's another story), toasted marshmallow, cinnamon, and cream soda. Don't they look nice?
