Ladies and gentleman take a seat.......







Well I have made a count of my jackets and coats.....
Yip I have one for every week in a year.....
52!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my pride and joy. The most beautiful blue velvet 1950's opera coat
brought from save mart in Invercargill.
It was on hold behind the counter and I begged the lady to ring me if the lady didn't come back. I still remember the squeals of excitement when they called. Look at the bows on the sleeves!!!!
So sweet-peas I am so sorry for my lack of playtime with all your lovely blogs, but we have exciting news. The house is under offer and we are full steam ahead to move. Sorry I may be out of the picture till we get things sorted. I know that you will be all looking just gorgeous and being fabulous!!! Squirrel hugs....
Stay tuned for the new adventure....
Off to "coats anonymous" for treatment.
