At last I have sorted out the dilemma with the camera. And it took me all afternoon! Damn, you have no idea how much frustration I have for Windows 8! Please tell me that I am not the only one who despises it! But I suppose I shall grow to it. Painstakingly. Eventually. I finally uploaded some of the pictures from the Local Marketta Launch. It took me long enough! Have a look if you like.
Anyway, today I went out with my sister to help her find a nice rug for her unit. And whilst looking for her I became so distracted and began selfishly looking for myself, well, because I saw the most beautiful carpet I have ever seen: This beautiful orange, ornate, psychedelic rug, and for cheap too! If only the boy and I had waited. We could have had this amazing rug of incredibleness in our unit instead and for a lot less than what we paid for the one that we have now! This Union Jack one was pretty spiffy too.
I spent the rest of the day helping her place her newly bought rug in her unit, as well as her outdoor seater, and trying to figure out how to function my laptop all the whilst listening to my warped 1967 copy of The Kinks' LP "Sunny Afternoon".
This is what I wore:
- 1970's vintage blue wool top
- Vintage cream coloured skirt with a split in the leg
- 1960's vintage white heels with bows
- Plastic white bangle
- Vintage white handbag
(Please do ignore the cables)
Like my shoes?
I found these lovelies for only $4.00 at a local charity shop and they are the most comfortable vintage shoes that I own. They originally came with clips on top, but I think they look much better like this.
"Sunny Afternoon" warps round and round on the record player that sits on the bookcase. (No, the bookcase is not complete yet! It still has a little more organizing to go.) I hadn't played it in so long, as my collection was at my parent's place, that I'd forgotten about the warp in it!
I hope that your afternoon was not near as frustrating as mine was!
