Blue skies, sunshine and fresh air greeted us this past Monday.
The weather put me in a happy state and I felt I had a bounce in my step
with oodles of energy.
The garden is in transition...
bulbs are popping up and things are looking lush and green.
The freesias are still as fresh as the day that I purchased them...
their fragrance is out of this world.
a closer look
offers me the opportunity to
breathe in their intoxicating scent
Flowers from the local merchants are particularly welcome at this time of year.
The garden has not yet emerged from its winter slumber
so it is nice to have a few vases filled with blooms in The Humble Bungalow.
I have been busy cleaning out closets, drawers, the pantry cupboard,
weeding out my books and cosmetics
washing and ironing
donating goods to the thrift and charity shop.
Life here is ticking along...
nothing out of the ordinary.
My OOTD today is pedestrian and simple.
I am channelling a matronly vibe...
it is comfortable, cozy and conservative...
well maybe a hint of a rebellious woman wearing leather boots and vest.
I expect there will be critical comments as a result of me putting myself out there...
that happens on the blog these days.
(moderation will weed out the rude and blunt from the constructive and polite)
grey boiled wool skirt
white top with lace at the hem
vintage leather vest
It is a challenge trying to take a decent selfie...
(in the laundry room with the graphite grey LG washing units behind me)
I am still lacking in this area but you get the general idea.
How about this Topsy Turvy image?
The Diptyque Ambre candle is almost finished...
How is your week going?
Any highlights that you care to share?
