they were Tees that had pilled and were looking faded.
I hang most of my clothes to dry so pilling is not usually a problem but those Tees were quite cheap and I think they were worn so often and were layered with vests and sweaters perhaps that is why they were badly abraded.
I did not replace them as I have two long sleeved Tees still in the closet.
Instead I opted for one new top...and a scarf.
Lands' End tunic top in a black and white stripe.
I wore this to the Winter Harp Concert with black leggings and Mee Too ballet flats.
Lands' End did a great job matching the stripes when sewing this top.
I snapped this picture from the car when driving home from the concert...
(I was in the passenger seat)
the legislative buildings in Victoria are lit up for Christmas.
This patterned scarf folded in half ~ black, grey and creamy beige shades.
The fabric has a felted texture and was purchased from the Oak Bay Avenue Pharmasave.
It has no tag to say what the fabric content is or who or where it was made...
As it mixes and matches with almost everything in my closet it is going to get a LOT of wear...
it may even come with me to Paris.
I spy with my little eye something that is silver...
I found a carry on that meets the strict requirements of Air France...
an early Xmas gift to myself
purchased at 60% off regular price AND I used my senior's discount!
It's good that it expands,
just in case I buy some things in Paris and need to check it on the flight home!
Mimi Thorisson author of the blog Manger has a cookbook out and it is full of fabulous French Country recipes.
This would make a great gift for the foodie on your Christmas list.
I have been drooling over her seasonal menus and cannot stop staring at the beautiful, sensual and sumptuous photographs in this book...
artfully captured by her talented husband Oddur.
I whipped up a couple of loaves of fruit bread
read most of "The House I Loved"...
I caught up on some much needed sleep...
Darling grand daughter Isla has been ill and my mind has not been able to completely turn off worrying about her.
She is on the mend thanks to antibiotics and I am looking forward to my "Grammy Day" this coming week.
I hope that Henry doesn't come down with the bug.
I was surprised when I recently got a thank you from Hermes in the mail.
I must admit that I am very impressed...
"Good Manners are Always in Fashion."
Must close for now
as I need to get dinner organized.
Thank you for your comments and book suggestions...
until next time...
