Its give-away announcement time!

Well hello! How was your weekend? 

Mine was well spent getting started on a new weaving project, shopping for dreamy vintage dresses at Retrospectrum and learning about Filipino food but not actually getting to eat any!

Isn't this dress fab!? It matches my blog theme!

Popped into this fancy yellow glass jug...

Given a shake...

  5. Hi, dear Catherine! I love shops like Retrospectrum. You walk through the door and all your senses are stimulated at once, producing the experience of stepping back in time. I can smell the incense and peppermint all the way from Florida U.S.A. You look absolutely fabulous in that outfit and the picture was composed with the perfect backdrop to create the illusion that it's a vintage photo of a 60s dream girl. My 60s girlfriend (who became the first Mrs. Shady) wore those colors and prints all the time and she was very fond of shifts.

    Congratulations to Rox, the winner of your giveaway! Have a wonderful week ahead. dear Catherine!

    1. thank you! it really is a fantastic shop! so much colour and so many things to look at and inspect! The owner was very particular about dressing the photo to match the outfit!

  6. This dress is wonderfully retro!!


  7. what a fab dress, love the colors and your smile is striking! big love from hippy at heart!
