Data dilemmas.......









Hi Sweet-peas.....

Oh I am so behind with posting, we have been having a few problems with data and the joys of living in a rural area with very little coverage.

Anyway these pics are from a few weeks ago,  I really do like dressing in the earthy tones and it was lovely to get out my favorite vintage 50's skirt for a wee jaunt.
The skirt has pockets which are perfect for popping in secret squirrels......
My lovely friend Katy made these little felt squirrels that are perfumed with rose oil, they smell divine.
Look at that amazing stitching all hand sewn by Katy, she is just amazing.
I have also discovered a great use for mens tie-slides, excellent for keeping a woolly scarf in place.

Thinking of you all and sending squirrel love.

  10. Ah, the perils of living in a rural place :-( These photos are just adorable, you really suit the colours and the skirt is fantastic (do I see bird cages??). The wee felt squirrel is so SQUEE. Petition your local MP to improve the internet coverage - however even here in the city the broadband keeps dropping at my place and uploading photos can take half an hour (or not). Hope you are enjoying a lovely autumn.

  13. May I say your skirt is exquisite! I LOVE the print, & I do go weak at the knees for pockets. Of course I love seeing you in brown boots too. You are my inspiration! With the tooled bag & secret squirrel you are picture perfect! Xx

  14. How ironic - when Lawrence was such a pioneer in getting free internet! You have my sympathy, my internet in Dunedin keeps on losing the plot.

  15. Such a pretty skirt! I have a fifties/early sixties curtain with birdcages on, it's so pretty but has a huge rip in it.
    I love the little squirrel!
