Women seem to gush when they talk of their purchases of clothing, jewels, shoes, accessories...
and home decor items.
They are very effusive when describing how much fun their shopping experience was and that they can hardly wait to return.
My friend was the co pilot in my old Volvo wagon plus we had a GPS to help us from getting lost...
Bamboozle is tucked away in a rural area off the beaten path.
It is an oasis of loveliness...
set under a canopy of trees.
outside on the porch of Bamboozle
inside there are fabulous finds
my friend bought some gorgeous clothes for summer
the fabrics and colours are cheery and bright
I was drawn to the style of garments and the display of the accessories in colour groupings
as were the 20 or so other women inside jostling for space
there was a line up at the change room
and everyone looked happy
Coombs is a destination
tourists flock here to the Goats on the Roof store and restaurant.
I love delphiniums
but they do not thrive in The Humble Bungalow Garden
so I take pictures and admire them with serious envy from afar.
Love these cool shades of blue and some soft mauve tinges that pop up in the blooms.
I have been using aquatic shades in my recent painting.
The Yoga mat usually is rolled up and stored away neatly...
I have a hobby room and keep it as I see fit.
Often it is a jumble
the cats love keeping me company when I am dabbling in acrylics
I do not like them usuing my Yoga mat as a scratching post though...
I found a really inexpensive dress when we stopped at Ladysmith for lunch on our way back from The Kingfisher.
a fabulous bakery
and a few boutiques dot the high street.
This frock is cool and the weather here has been sunny and very hot
so it is a much needed purchase.
even the colours are cool
three layers of ruffles at the bottom
Hoping that you are keeping cool and remember to hydrate with fresh cool water.
I have started taking bottled water on my hourly walks...
it makes all the difference.
Thank you for taking the time to read my humble blog
and for those of you who send me emails I really appreciate getting to know you better.
