Todays’s post has no particular theme hence the title . If this was written on the day I usually write Monday Musing would have been more appropriate but as it is now Wednesday not so much.
The outfit above is what I wore last Tuesday when I met my friend Janet for a catch up over several hours that also included copious cups of tea and some window shopping .
As often is the case I turned to my all time favourite black and white , a check black and white Moyuru cotton skirt topped with a new Sarah Puccinni knit that I found at Allstyle in Hobart recently.
I will also admit that I composed this outfit with my friend Suzanne in Melbourne (who is still in lockdown) in mind as I was keen to join her Instagram pattern clash challenge . Being not one to do so much on the colour clash front I opted for a mix of squares, stripes and spots instead. The spots were in the form of black and white spotted tights and the Jianhualondon necklace .
Lots to do in my garden , the milder weather and quite a bit of rain has encouraged not just the plants but also a good collection of weeds.
The garden is starting to put on her Spring colours , some plants are a little slow this year while others such as this pretty Oriental poppy are really early . Like most of 2020 there is no rhyme or reason.
Thursday was a designated public holiday here for a show that wasn’t taking place due to Covid and it was a raining cats and dogs , the perfect day for a wardrobe reshuffle , Winter to Spring/Summer.
I started by moving the Summer hats from their Winter resting place in the top cupboards of the wardrobe into their Summer home in my walk in closet , that in reality is my sons old bedroom that now houses many of my collections. This rather wonderful bust is a momento from Return to Splendour , a local recycle store, that closed recently as the lovely owner retired. I haven’t named her yet so any suggestion is most welcome. She is wearing an oversize hat that I found there at the end of last Summer.
This unit was in the bathroom but is now perfect for storing some of my many bangles , necklaces,earrings and handbags. The stands that display my bangles and earrings were in a store that I worked in a few years ago and became mine when the store closed.
A peek inside the newly organised closets , I may have way too many jackets and white shirts.
Friday was a work day and on Saturday after our usual visit to the market for vegetables , bagels and bread and a supermarket run I spent the rest of the day in the garden.
On Sunday we had some special visitors, Zac, Sarah and little Harry who joined us for lunch . It was a beautiful sunny day so enjoyed our first meal outside this season.
