On the Border

I haven't been down to Coolangatta for about a year, so it was a treat to visit there on a lovely Spring day. I wore this handmade barkcloth shift dress given to me by blog friend Susan. I love the square neckline and the colours. I'll be wearing it to death during the hotter months.

We visited 20th Century Antiques, which now has a lovely cafe

I LOVED this handmade cotton dress, but it wasn't the right fit on me
I do love faux patchwork fabric

"That Shop" next door sells rockabilly and pin up style clothing

Stunning views north to Surfers Paradise

  1. That dress is fab, the square neckline looks great on you. I'm lusting over the bird in a tree brooch, too.
    That beach is gorgeous, how lucky to be within travelling distance. xxx

  2. You look so perfect in the bark cloth dress. I can see why you'll be wearing it and wearing it. Lovely scenery. Lovely accessories.

  3. Love this dress and the little deer brooch. Does look like a beautiful spring day. xx

  4. I LOVE the wall hangings with the black dancer and drummer in orange! So my home decor style!

  5. Beautiful views, and a delicious frock in your favourite colour! Great print too. xxx

  6. This is my favorite brooch collage you've ever put together!!!


  7. I do love that frock - especially the neckline and that is an especially wonderful "scrum" of brooches :D


I'd love to hear from you!
