SAVING DAYLIGHT

We put our clocks forward this morning... "SPRING forward, Fall back" as the saying goes.

Spring is evident everywhere right now.

Yesterday was a classic Spring day. Freezing  in the morning, GLORIOUS day.

"Today is A Shorts day" Op Shop Daddy declared! 

I didn't wear shorts, however! It has to be really hot for that!


I have had this skirt literally for years. It was once a maxi, but I am ashamed to say that I morphed  A LOT of maxis into skirts when I was a teenager. Boo hiss!
Any hoo, I wore this one as a dress.


In the photo I am telling Iris to get out of the frame for a second. I TOLD you I can NEVER get a good photo of myself! 

We went to the Spring Fair, held at my niece's school. I love a good fair, me!




This is my very pregnant sister-in-law ( and my niece) who is wearing my favourite EVER preggy dress. She looks a million bucks in it. I should have got a standing up one of her. This is about her due date now. 


Iris trying Candy Floss. She was  quite impressed. And intrigued.

Handmade dress.
Red merino gifted from another sister-in-law.
Everything else op shopped.

My niece Zoe made all these cute things from socks. SO CLEVER!! I am always so stunned by what she comes up with. We bought the blue one in the middle.

Vintage readers. My sister-in-law took these home.
I remember them well!

She was actually having a good time, despite the face. It was a real treat going along just with  her, and not my boy-tribe. I only had to keep my eye on one!



I have been having a great time discovering a lot of hidden treasure that I had TOTALLY forgotten about from the loft at our other house, which I'm FINALLY able to get to.

I will blog about it all when I get the chance..

I like your skirt it's cute.
The spring fair looked fun.
Iris is dressed so adorable!
I like your nieces sock creations. I have two sock monkeys I have to put mouths on. Then they will be done! *woo*

What a helpful saying: Spring forward. Fall back. Of course it only works in English. But it helps. So: We will put back our clocks at the end of October. :-)
