Bath & bag & bye



Nothing like a good long soak in the bath, especially when it's your friends bathroom that you just spent a long hot week slaving to transform into a lovely space. Candles everywhere give it a warm yellow glow but it is actually white with a dark wood floor. Very calming compared to the decor of the previous occupant.

Will not be blogging for at least 8 days as I'll be in France at my friends wedding. The planned 30's style dress turned into a nightmare when, after cutting up the material, I discovered I had got one dress size bigger in a week. What can I say, I was snacking a lot cause I was stressing about making the dress! But I have improvised by sewing pink chiffon bits onto a nice top and will wear it over the 30's nightie so it still looks a little old style and looks good with the blue shoes. Me in pink chiffon, I'd never have imagined it.



Details from the camera bag I made to match my wedding outfit.




At last, the cat sitters are organised, the house sitters are organised, the garden/veg sitters are organised. In fact, the only person not organised is me. There will be no sleep before my flight in the morning. I'm so much looking foarward to it all. Au revoir... x
