Did you know the WA Police Pipe Band are 50 years old? Neither did I, but it was one of the facts I learned when they visited our number 3's school. I adore bagpipe music, it sends a chill down my spine (in a good way). It was good to see another side to the police - the leader was a Scotsman called Stuart, very fitting I thought and he had a great sense of humour - much to the childrens' delight he took great pleasure in ordering the teachers about :)
Thrifting always without fail cheers me up. Treasure this week included a cross-stitch kit, a sparkley top and some awesome orange silky fabric, all for the princely sum of $3. For this I get to embroider a dragon, make a sequinned cushion for a fraction of the price of one I've seen in the shops and line a handbag or two. Spot the item I didn't get at the thrift shop - a clue, it's not the sandstone!
We're renovating the kitchen, so I had to say goodbye to my funky tiles :( I took photos of each one - sad I know - but now I can do all sorts of arty things with the images. We did manage to save 2 whole tiles, which was amazing as the tile adhesive seemed to symbiotically join to the wall at a molecular level (no lie! sounds good too) so the majority smashed as they were being removed. These are destined for mosaics.
Lots of fun had this weekend :)
