Out thrifting yesterday, not too much to report. Some OK scarves (as usual), fabric with sporting scenes, a quilt that I shall show you at the end of the week. But then a fantastic white mink full length maxi coat turned up! I had sworn never to buy another fur coat but this one was too good to pass up. I'm not sure how I am going to sell it, its very small, poss size 4. It has a Creeds label. This may not mean much to anyone but a Torontonian, but it was THE fancy, upmarket store untill the early 90s I believe. At that point I decided to call it a day.
This time of year we pick a bouquet from the garden every day.....glorious dahlias and asters. However I do not like these cactus dahlias, big as dinner plates and sometimes 7 feet tall. However, they are R's pride and joy and he is the gardener in our house.
my street, where I have lived a good many years.
Hi FF! What a lovely, leafy street you live on. I'm with 'Him Indoors' on the blooms front - I do love a blousey dahlia. Nice photo too ;)ReplyDelete

Thank you for visiting GPB.
Once upon a time I had planned to die with the most fabric.
But I'm fickle.
It's wool wool wool for me now.
All the way to the grave.
thanks for stopping by my blog & leaving a comment. The Tawny Frogmouth nest is outside my work window...I don't have an actual office, more like half a dozen rooms I work in. On the other side of the building is a Currawong nest ... no sign of chicks there yet....just the mumma sitting
