Good evening wonderful friends! I hope this post finds you well and happy!
Sorry to bombard you with six posts worth of photos all at once. I have been playing stylist, trying to figure out how best to photograph my dresses before I ship them off. Any suggestions? Which pictures do you like best? My blog posts used to be jam-packed with photos of finished custom orders, but I have had such a hard time photographing the Annie dresses - the pics just don't do them justice. Of course Miss Katie Mitchell did an exceptional job, but unfortunately I don't have her or her stunning sister on-call to help me out on a day to day basis...
Anyway, I am happy to report that we are home sweet home' after a wonderful five days of catching up with my family in Perth. There was a birthday reunion with Aunty at the Indi bar in Scarborough - which was fabulous as the Indi bar was my old 'haunt' back before I became a responsible parent... We listened to great music and drank Pints of Fat Yak.
The rest of the trip was unplanned and uneventful. Which was perfect. You might be surprised to hear that I left the op-shops alone on this particular trip (WHAT! Seriously!) But I did manage to score a pair of Saltwater sandals... I know that I had a pair of these as a kid and I didn't love them back then, but I saw a pair on Alana's blog and it was love at first sight... I needed a pair of summer shoes to wear with my dresses, and I am just not a 'high heel' kinda girl, and a pair of thongs just don't measure up.
The sandals are perfect. Straight after I bought them (I wore them out of the shop) I headed to the park where my small person was with my sister. I ran up to this fabulous looking 'windsurfer on springs' thingo and jumped on it. I then smashed the tin sail straight into my head and fell off, laughing so hard that I may of wet my pants a little...
Well on that note, It's time to love you and leave you. Tomorrow is a sewing day, and I have a massive pile of parcels to send. All very exciting!!
