A VERY VINTAGE SKIRT, MAGPIES, AND A QUESTION...


BELLINGEN PARK - also home of the Bellingen Magpies -
the feathered variety and the Rugby League variety. 
Top vantage point from the lighting towers means anyone crossing
the open space during nesting season is an easy bombing target by the feathered ones. As for the other magpies...I know nothing about Rugby League. Down south where I grew up it was Aussie Rules and my boys played Soccer.



  But the little grandstand was a fabulous
stage for this photo shoot...



I love purple and red together...
and a wall that makes a statement...



Need I say more...



 My skirt is older than I am and once belonged to a beloved 
aunt. I believe she made it herself...from cotton fabric you don't find any more and although the front has faded and I have repaired the waistband, I love it...
Belt, pre loved, I've had it for a long time...
but I bought the red cardi new! ... some years ago
I can't stand sleeves in the summer and love the Balinese 
lace camisoles...
  

 Bellingen is "Birki territory" - every second person wears 
Birkenstocks...our relaxed lifestyle and the climate...traditionally shoes aren't worn inside...Birkenstocks are easy to slip off and on, they're super comfy and come in so many colours...


Pre loved earrings from Jillian's Bello Market stall - and a gift from her because one of them was missing a hook...


As J.B.'s and my shadows lengthen, I pause for 
reflection...yesterday was Remembrance Day, the 11th of the 11th...this post is 
for my Dad, 93 years old WW2 Veteran...Looking forward to seeing him at Christmas...
