A riot of colour has exploded in my garden over this last week with the first of my roses bursting into bloom and filling the air with their intoxicating fragrance.
I decided to add my own touch of colour in this Asian inspired floral print coat that I happened upon during
the week at Red Fox , a new to town vintage/ recycle store. Even though it is quite a change to what I often
choose it called my name and home it came.It is a mixture of linen lined with the hot pink .
The self sown red poppies in my courtyard reflect the poppies in the coat. On the other hand the white
dog in the foreground (named Raffy) just happened to be there and I like the way the shot turned out.
Although he is the same colour as my pants and silk top, they are both more cream than white but did
come out looking quite white.
This post celebrates Grown Up Glamour's second anniversary, my how time has flown.I have learnt such
a lot in those two years and discovered so many wonderful, talented women all over the world. I have made many new friends and really do hope that I can meet some of them in person.
The connection with like minded souls is for me what truly makes blogging such a joy.
This was bought home to me recently when Natalia from In the Writers Closet said goodbye to the blogging
world for now as for her it had run its course in her life, it really did feel like saying my goodbyes to an old friend. I wish her well in her new writing endeavours.
The technical side of blogging is still for me a bit hit and miss , something I really hope to work on in the future. Maybe soon I will learn how to use blogs photos on Instagram, this is something that eludes me at present. Also I hope to redesign my page but this will have to wait until I have a computer savy son home
for a visit at Christmas.
My floral coat was teamed with a silk top from Marlene Birger and pants from Lisa Ho , both of these
I have had for many years , vintage 1960's clip earrings , assorted resin and bakelite bangles.
My hat is from Marie Marcie , a French milliner , and was bought in Melbourne at Christines , a very
high end boutique, at a stock take sale for an extremely discounted price.
Two of my favourite old fashioned roses , the striped one is Varigata de Bologna , the other Souvenier de
MalMaison, both bourban roses with stunning perfumes.
