I couldn't resist...

I was invited to the opening of Shop Handmade last night. The invite said dress "After 5". I was tempted to wear PJs but finally decided the only thing to do was pull out the tails and shirt I bought for the Sturt Summer School party (which I never went to).So, feeling very Yves St Laurent circa the 60s (but the thrifted version) I trotted off to drink bubbles, eat gorgeous colour coordinated desserts and beautifully branded biscuits and spend this week's grocery budget on a fabulous yardage design tea towel to add to my collection:Black and white? Destination roll design? Featuring dessert and chocolate? How could I resist?!

Oh that was my photo on Canberra's Got Style blog, yippee, you're looking so cute with your tea towel Anna-Maria. So great to meet you, did you enjoy your little midnight snack?? I went back again today to get another Yardage Design tea towel (i bought the same as you last night) & the Shop atmosphere was gorgeous. Love Posie

Alas I had to be strong and not eat the snack until breakfast time this morning because I had to wait for the light to photograph it :-(

I was tempted to go back to the shop today to sample the desserts i didn't have last night but the siren call of the first day of the Lifeline Bookfair was far louder this morning...

Yes, your outfit was faaabulous - love the shirt and the tails... there's just not enough of that around here! and all thrifted - you are too amazing! I also succumbed and bought the teatowel - I think Yardage Girl had better get busy and send us some more of those!!! xxx
