Wednesday, May 23

early morning...

it is crack of dawn early, Rachelle arrived late monday, Cath arrives later today, i am sitting here in 'night attire' surrounded by a shed in all its granny chic wonder and digging deep within the recesses of my little cogs to come up with the right spiffy words for certain points within the book.

the most 'love you like no other' peachy bark cloth i have ever come across

i know those words will be found, they always do, they just play hard to get on some days. whilst looking for them, i might go out in my nightie and clogs into the yard, stand in the rain and do a 'not too sunny but not blimen raining' dance in the hope of someone up above seeing me in my glorious brightly embroidered thrift store 'get-up' and shine down on us for the next 2 days

taken before the rains came

in a bit, probably still with thinking caps on but no nighties, just nice handmade frocks, Rachelle and moi will be off to the thrift store. could not have her fly all this way and keep her in the shed doing only book stuff! the next few days will be full of photo taking and styling so this morning, we will play hooky from the book(y).
for playing hooky will be good for our granny chic souls and our little tired cogs which appear to be needing a little oiling... and nothing gets those cogs going quite like a pottle amongst the shelves of despair

Ha ha - lovely! Getting out and about (i.e. shopping) will undoubtedly clear the cogs and get the inspiration juices flowing again. If the books is half as brilliant as your glorious blog then it will be a bestseller anyway, have no fear!

I love your "granny chic" words in this post. I hope you find great deals at the thrift store. That trailer in the second pick looks SO retro and fun.

Hi Tif,
Hope you and Rachel find some fabulous bargins on your 'thrifting hunt'.
A little r&r is good for recharging the energy levels.
Have a good week
