Garden and Glam.

l love to get out in the garden, however l tend to be one of those gardeners that does nothing for ages and then every now and again works themselves into a frenzy trying to catch up on all the weeding they SHOULD have been doing all along:-), so it was good news when the council recently gave everyone in our town a large green bin and began a green waste recycling programme. I've been out in the garden.... pruning the roses, cutting back the perennials and trimming and weeding.... FILLING that FLIP TOP up:-)
Although we still had to take a huge load of green waste to the waystation as we've also had violent winds here which completely blew over one of the large trees in our backyard, luckily nothing/no-one was hurt or destroyed except the poor old tree, we've planted another one in it's place but it looks so teeny and bare....

Even though it was only 1degree this morning l gritted my teeth (it stopped them chattering:) and went to the market, even though l was convinced there'd be nothing was rapt to find a couple of lovely vintage inspired frocks. They're the two white/black ones at the front of the rack.

l wonder if you do this too.....when l get Christmas or Birthday money l usually save it until l come across something a bit special.... Last week l found this French jewellery casket at a local antiques cleaned me out, but l loved it and had been after one for ages that wasn't too spendy.
Found this funky boho hangy thing made of coconut shells at a garage sale...l'm SO kicking myself though, because there were two and l left the other one there, as it was missing a couple of bits, however l realise NOW that l really needed the TWO and it's all just a bit TOO late.

Lovely old faded print.

Finally a bit of sunshine....perfect for taking a few pics:-)

Taken from my photo files....See full post here.

Thanks so much for taking the time to pop in here and have a read.....hope you all have a fantastic rest of your week.

Big Hugs.



  1. Aaaah, so much beautiful eye candy in all these pics Bron!!! Your new frocks are absolutely gorgeous and I so love the word "frock":) I love your "hangy thing" too, I have many times I regret not buying something but at least you got the one! It's so disciplined of you to save up your money, I spend mine as soon as it hits my hot little hands:) You invested yours well, your jewelry piece is stunning!

    I'm glad you weren't injured by the tree! We used to have falling tree's quite frequently in California and they didn't always end well:( I'm a terrible gardener which is why I usually try to avoid having one! Kyran bought me a beautiful Hibiscus plant for Valentine's Day but it's now dead as a doornail and looking pretty pathetic out on our front porch.

    Thank you for sharing all your lovelies Bron! It's always a treat visiting your blog. I know I'm way behind on mine, probably won't get around to a new one til next month...oh well:( Hugs to you my friend and have a wonderful day (or probably evening there now?).
