Town and Country...

It was a weekend of contrasts, one day (and night) dressed up in the city, and one day visiting friends in the country.

Garth and I were invited to his work's end of year party, at the casino. I wore my black 40's rayon dress with ribbon trim. I found it in an antique store in Flagstaff, Arizona for $14. Garth wore his 30's suit, found in an op shop in Vegas.We stayed the night in the Hilton - hence the room service!

On Sunday, we went for a country drive. It's so hot here at the moment, so I just threw my hair up and wore a dress I made from an old bedsheet.

Remember a while back when I said my favourite handbag was breaking? I've found a solution: Knit one! Here's my progress so far:

Hope you had a good weekend!


  1. lovely pics. I love the idea of using a sheet as fabric for a dress,there are such lovely prints and colours. I also had a little glee giggle as I had those sheets as a child and they are currently in my parents linen cupboard.
