Little Squirrels in the big city.........













I hope you sweet-peas have had a scrumptious weekend!!!!!


We have had a most fabulous weekend in the big city, "Auckland" with my brother and his lovely partner Esther. Sunday started with such excitement, after years of wanting to go to a vintage/retro fair in Auckland, we did!!! It was just so good, I was in love with so many things and they were all saying " take me home please"!!!!! The array of stalls meant there was something for every little treasure hunter and for every type of budget. I was in the end a very controlled little traveling squirrel finding a floral cotton nightie(with original 70's price-tag) which I will wear as a dress, blue polka dot house-coat, rose bakelite brooch, plastic Bambi brooch,  ivory brooch, and my super duper favorite the green  plastic butterfly brooch.  Happy happy!!!!

After a lovely lunch we went up "One Tree Hill' to have a somewhat windy and panoramic view over the city, then it was off to the Art Gallery to see the very cool exhibition "Who shot rock & roll". What an incredible series of photographs, so many behind the scenes shots that showed a raw and fragile side to these famous musicians.

We were all so tired but filled with happiness after such a fantastic day.

Thanks Andy and Esther, love you guys!!!!


The travelers are now in Raglan for a few days.......

And that little Bambi with the butterfly on its bum and the green butterfly brooch are adorable. So are you, doing your Marilyn in the Seven Year Itch impression, floofy skirts, yay! xxxx

  16. I immediately knew exactly where you were when I saw that first pic. That fair looks amazing! It looks a lot more interesting then the fashion fair in September. I adore your frock....you look SO pretty! A vision in vintage! I just love the parks in Auckland. One Tree Hill & Mt Eden are such amazing places so close to the big city. Xx
