Hello everyone , I hope this finds all well in your part of the world. Today is the first day of Spring here in Australia and we have been rewarded with a mild and sunny day.
Last week on one of those clear, sunny days John and I enjoyed a drive in the countryside , stopping to take a few photos along the way. The stone building behind me is Auld Kirk , a convict and free labour built church dating back to 1843.
On the banks of the Tamar River with the Batman Bridge in the background wearing a much loved and worn Moyuru gingham skirt , Shona Joy cream jumper , striped velvet turban , black leather fingerless gloves , black and white Preen sunnies , black and white locally made earrings and a Christina Brampti necklace and black boots.
I had been on the look out for a pair of combat style boots for quite a while but most of the ones I tried were always really heavy and I know from past experience that doesn’t work for me. I spied this pair by Spanish brand Pikolinos at a local shoe store, The House of Shoes, which happens to be near where I work, tried them on and knew they had to be mine.
Another day, another car run , this time with fellow T series MG owners for a pleasant drive , stopping along the way in the pretty town of Deloraine for coffee then continuing on to D’Anvers at Latrobe for lunch. D’Anvers is also a maker of fine chocolates and I will admit to returning home with a packet of their rather yummy snowballs.
In the car park after lunch , ready to head off to view a car collection owned by a local car racing identity.
The gardens at D’Anvers were looking really pretty with Spring bulbs , flowering trees and camellias. I would have loved to stay longer and explore the gardens but there were cars to see (say no more).
The day was cool with rain forecast and as our MG has no heating I dressed accordingly in wool cream Moyuru pants , a black knit, cream top, black Max Mara coat ( a recycle find), Paula Ryan beret and Ted Baker gloves.
Joining Gail at This is Mutton for Wow on Wednesday and Nancy for Fancy Friday.
