Things are in that crazy overwhelming stage. Nice to run away and walk to the coffee house near home.
Standing outside the Rangiora bowling club or RBC, as you can see. I wonder if I will be a bowler when I'm a Old biddy, that time is coming quick. I feel this dam earthquake business has added a few years.
Wearing my heavy grey coat the best find at the Riccarton markets, worn over two dresses layered.
I love this rose red with grey in winter.

Then later in the afternoon we went for a walk.
This is my poor old pinafore, she has had so many repairs. But I still love her. Circa 70' in a soft cotton velvet. Made in NZ by Gainsborough.
Wearing a layer of scarves today.

We went to Woodend beach to find pinecones for the fire today.
It's was nice to walk in the Forrest and collect the cones.
I was so warm in my cream pom pom wool cardy and cord blue pinafore.
Also columbine brown tights and cream socks over top for warmth, brought from Ballantynes department store. I miss shopping there. They are like us, trapped in the CBD red zone.
Oh don't you love my lace up suede shoes, they are wool lined. Thank you op shop.
Hmmm sitting in front of fire now posting this. Lv v

Will have a try on later, it was too cold to try in the shops.
This is one of the dresses I have washed from Tete a Tete's stock. It's abit big but the soft mushroom colour is lovely, she is a 60's number.
Worn with brown I look like a wee mushroom.

Seedy wee squirrel today.
Blue seemed a good colour to wear.
Wearing my 50's blue jacket and a cute dress I got from "Retro Funk" circa 50's I think.
Sorry to many dust bunnies in my head!!!!
It was a wonderful night to talk over the past and look to the future.
We had a gorgeous time.
I love red wine, but red wine does not love me.
I am very furry around the edges today.
A Nanna nap maybe needed.

We had to go to town to post a few things.
So I've rugged up in some furry vintage treasures.
This coat was one of the lucky ones! It was rescued in a wheelie bin from "Two squirrels", it has cleaned up really well. She needed to be loved today.
Coat circa 80's, lovely fur and leather leaf detail.
Wearing a "oh so warm" fur neck tie scarf thing???
In background some of Mr Warren's sculptures, he's so talented.
Stay warm sweetpeas!

These squirrels have lost to much already.

It's location is still secret squirrel, shhhh!
We hope to have it open in November.
Nut news will keep you posted here and on our Facebook page under two squirrels vintage.
Happiness is sharing good news.....
The cold has really decided to make me feel yucky.
But don't you love my rosebud knit bed socks???
Wearing these just makes me feel better.
Embracing your inner Nanna when feeling so sick will always make you better.
Just wish I knew where I put my lavender knit bed jacket.

I am pretty tired from lack of sleep and have a head cold.
We went into town to take water to our friends Shane & Gabby, who live in the eastern suburbs. There wee house is just in a mud bath.
Then to a meeting for CBD business.
Head now filled with cold and hurting!!!!
Ok something more fun, my fab new purple wool coat(looks blue sorry), circa 80's, looks 40's. Great find in op- shop, Dunedin.
Love red accessories with purple, heavenly.
