The Captain & I had a long weekend at our family bach on the Sunshine Coast. It was a glorious weekend, although too hot for my liking. We visited the beach, my favourite coast op shops, & I had to try to ingest 100 grams of fat each day for four days for a medical test I'm having tomorrow. I thought that would be a piece of cake (pardon the pun!), but it turns out it's harder work then you might think!
Fish & chips, milkshakes, KFC, donuts, pancakes, cream, chocolate.
I feel sick of the sight of food at the moment.....and that's coming from a pretty big eater!
Here are some pics of our weekend.....
I had banana & honeycomb pancakes, which I couldn't get through on my own. But they were good!
I ogled this fabulous Mini with red interior
And I struck the mother load of vintage frocks at our very first op shop. An elderly lady's collection had been donated. Apparently she was quite the hoarder, and she just happened to be my size!
I ended up with 12 frocks for under $50 from the 50's, 60's & 70's.
The fabrics & styles had me squeeing in excitement! It was like a vintage dream, I thought tales like this were an urban legend. And just to tease me they told me even more stock is going out this week....maybe it's just as well I won't be there.
Of course there were also accessories to be had....
Bangles, beads & brooches
And my other weakness, vintage bags.....
And a wee bit of pyrex to add to my mixing bowl collection
Some old sewing patterns which make great wrapping paper.
Signing off for now.....I've got washing to do & blogs to read, & fat to eat! Xx
