Ahh, spring is here.
Started the weekend by mowing the front and back
lawn for the first time this year, now that was hard
work, I still ache from it.
Another thing I did for the first time this year was
to hang the laundry out to dry, that's when you know
it's spring! :)
Today it's been sunny and warm so I started painting
our fence, I ran out of paint but at least I made a start
and the difference is huge.
I didn't blog during the weekend, didn't have the time
and the energy really. Yesterday I did nothing, felt low
and stayed in bed watching Weeds all day.
Saturday was busy. My man took me out on a date.
I might sound like a broken record by now, we went
scouting for vintage. This time we went to the market
in Burnt Oak and then for lunch at our favorite Chinese
Afterwards we went to a few places we'd never been
before, together that is, my man grew up here in north
London so it's his back pocket.
We got a few nice things, unfortunately I didn't get any
good pics of the two vintage jackets I got for my man.
Here's a selection of what we got.
Pink gingham playsuit, £1.99.
I want summer, now!
Vintage bamboo cuff links, £1.
My man is about as nuts about bamboo as I am so this was
the perfect gift.
A bunch of coconut buttons, 10 pence.
I had my man's Hawaiian shirts in mind.
Some of them comes with ugly plastic buttons so these will
really make a change.
This amazing vintage dress arrived today!
I bought it on Etsy for $22 and I've been waiting a month
for it, shipping issues, the seller was kind enough to refund
the shipping cost. I didn't even have to ask.
