Friday fish, flowers and frocks

We are a bit yellow around the gills after getting up close and personal with these bad boys at the local garden centre.  
They were all up for having your fingers off waiting for food.
Keeping with the yellow theme these pretty miniature daffodils came
 from my niece Keeley's shop at the garden centre
Here's Auntie Gladys waving a cheery hello to you all 
after our trip out where she thought I had transported her to a foreign country
No, we are not in Thailand or Jurassic Park, it's the garden centre
"Peace be with you all this weekend" said the Buddha to the fly
Nearly forgot to show you the skirt my friend made me out of a curtain
Curtain skirt, jumper from Stockport Vintage Village last weekend, tricel cardi charity shop

I haven't got a pic of me in the curtain dress yet but the pic below is the next curtain outfit Val is making for me.  I've got enough for a frock, skirt and top. Stay tuned for the results as she works quite quickly.


  1. I bet you're thrilled to bits with your new lovely to have a friend that can run you up just what you want. You have a very Spring-like post today Lynn....and Spring is my fav season of the year :-)
    have a great week.

  2. I agree with Annie - a lovely cheery Spring post - love the skirt too. x Jo

  3. Sounds like you and your aunt had a lovely time at the garden center. Your skirt is fabulous! I love those fabric prints you shared. Have a great weekend, Pat

  4. Your curtain couture is utterly fabulous and I bet Aunty Gladys is as much fun as you, her smile is gorgeous. xxx

  5. What a fun post, Lynn. I so enjoyed reading through this...meeting Aunt Gladys, the lovely skirt your friend made out of a curtain and more. :) Have a lovely weekend!

  6. What a useful friend you have. I love her sewing. Aunty Gladys sounds as though she enjoyed her outing! I love the spring flowers too. Kate x

  7. Bet Aunty Gladys had a great time even if she did think you had taken her to another country. Have a great weekend, Angela x

  8. I was out all day today and just got home. Glad I stopped by because I loved seeing
    Aunt Gladys at the Garden Center and your lovely flowers. Of course, that skirt is AWESOME. Recycling at its best if you ask me. Again, sorry I was late visiting today and wishing you a memorable weekend.

  9. Oooh, Lynn those outfits are enough to make any smile, and also love the cheery smile from dear aunt Gladys tell her I send one all the way from Downunder.. now that is overseas. :)
    Thanks so much for sharing, Shaz in Oz.x

  10. Hello Aunty Gladys! What a lovely lady she looks. Yes, it can be quite an adventure at garden centres these days. You never know what you might find. Piranhas posing as goldfish? I love yellow, especially right at the end of winter. Xxx
