This post is coming a day early because we will be at the international airport bright & early Friday morning. We are flying into Dunedin & spending two weeks touring around the South Island of New Zealand for the 6th time! (Yes we love it that much!) We'll be going to Queenstown, Wanaka, Mt Cook, Oamaru & Christchurch..... & then flying up to Auckland for one week at our sister & brother-in-laws place. We already have the op shops mapped out, & I am hoping to get to the Vintage & Textiles Fair in Auckland on the 9th of Sept. Fingers crossed I get to see a couple of blogging buddies too. I must admit I've been packed since about May, but no doubt I will still be taking far too much stuff. My health hasn't been too good this year, so I am just hoping my body cooperates & I am well enough to enjoy the trip without too much pain. I will miss you all, & I will have a lot of blog reading to catchup on when we get home. Hopefully I'll be back with lots of Kiwi treasures & some more interesting photos then those taken in my backyard!
Today's frock was a recent Ebay purchase. This is a stretch poly dress that looks to be handmade. I like the button detail & the colours. You can see now why I "really needed" those orange & navy beads!
