A couple of my charity shop buys this week fit in with this theme very nicely ....
... I saw this chair with its peacock back and knew that it would be great to use in the garden on sunny days and its quite comfy too. I've always liked these big chairs; they remind me of those 70s interiors adorned with Biba-esque models, their toes embedded into white shag pile rugs, with a backgound of Alphonse Mucha posters and vases of multi-coloured ostritch feathers all photographed through a haze of patchouli joss stick smoke.
My other buy was this very colourful Liberty sun hat, jauntily modelled by the family orangutan.
On the crafting scene, I've just finished making a maxi skirt from one of the patterns that I brought last month. It was quite easy to make and I'll be attempting another one soon; however it did take up almost five metres of fabric so any thoughts of treating myself to a Liberty print has gone straight out of the window.
